BAG - Eel Skin Clutch by Makki
This may not be the cheapest clutch bag you can get your hands on, but it is a pretty good investment piece. The bag is made from Eel's skin which is much softer than leather and around 3 times as strong. The texture is different too and quite distinctive. You might think that using eel skin could be cruel but don't panic just yet. The material is a by product of the food industry and eels are not killed for their skin. This may not satisfy the vegans among us, but eel skin bags are considered to be eco-friendly.
The bags are available in a range of colours. I love the teal, but after being featured in Vogue and Marie Claire it has sold out. Better hurry and get yours soon before they are all gone.
