This striking statement clutch bag is made from silver Piñatex and black and white Inabel textile. Piñatex is a vegan alternative to leather, an innovative natural textile made from pineapple leaf ﬁbre. The leaves are the by-product of existing agriculture, and their use creates an additional income stream for farming communities in the Philippines.
Inabel is a fabric that’s handwoven on large antique wooden looms via a process called ‘Abel’ by the women of Illocos, Philippines.
The fabrics used in these designs are handwoven by 74-year-old Corazon Agosto, a skilled artisan. She’s also currently teaching her grand daughter to help in keeping this beautiful tradition alive.
These pouches come with two detachable gold plated brass chain straps.
