I joined the club of I Love Crap clutch owners. I debated getting one for a long time, but ultimately figured that I wanted it long enough, and supporting the hard working people in Africa makes it more than worth the luxury price tag. The construction is handmade, the beading is heavy and quite sturdy, some of the seams are a bit here and there, but the overall appearance shows that the person who made it took great care and attention to detail, and what few flaws it has gives it a lot of character. It is from Vivienne Westwood’s Ethical Fashion line of handbags, in which she employs seamstresses in Kenya, in an effort to improve living standards by increasing employment, and giving them life skills as well as a steady income.
