Reminiscent of a 1920’s dance purse our Daisy Clutch is crafted from antique rose pink silk crepe with elaborate chinoiserie embroidery in varying shades of cornflower blue. The Circa 1900’s Canton piano shawl’s we have used to create these purses and their colors are pure bohemian bliss! We love contrasting style and texture so we have used a light caramel linen blend fabric for the lining. We have added exquisite antique embroidered lace appliqués to the body of this wonderful bag to compliment the silk fringe with tassels that frames the generous front flap closure.
There is plenty of room inside for your wallet, checkbook and necessary cosmetics. Demure yet bold, our Daisy Clutch is the prettiest clutch purse you will ever own.

The Canton Shawl : In 1565 the Manilla galleon trade route from Manilla, through the northern Pacific around Japan opened the door for the Spanish King to allow Filipino’s to trade with China. A large square silk “Canton Shawl” with elaborate embroidery arrived in the Philipines, and soon became known as the Manton de Manilla. Early embroidered themes of frogs, Chinese people, scenes, birds and flowers transitioned into floral and foliage themes that were popular in Seville. Fashionable Spanish women wanted deep fringes to be added around the borders so there would be movement of the fringes, and call attention to the wearer.
