Vintage Automotive Fabric Clutch

This super cute clutch and every other handbag in this collection is made from vintage automotive fabric. Kim White, the creative genius behind these trendy bags, uses dead stock, never used fabric. What's totally cool is that each bag is tagged with the year and model of the car that the fabric was destined for.
