ATIN LINE Black & Yellow Dukesa Clutch
This classic yet fun Dukesa Clutch is a hand-sewn bag made from black recycled fabric and a local cotton textile called mata-mata. The cotton is grown and then handwoven in the northern Luzon region of the Philippines.
The Dukesa is 6 inches high, with a base 10.5 inches long. It will fit your smartphone, keys, money, credit card, and a tube of lipstick. Yep, all the essentials!
Other materials: YKK zipper. Black fabric lining. Nylon string. Recycled leather tassels.

How we make our fabric components:
The recycled textile comes from discontinued samples of luxe upholstery fabric, and from cuttings from designers' tables.
We hand-cut circles 2.5 inches from the cloth.
These circles are then worked on by our women partners from a disadvantaged community in Las Pinas. They hand-sew and fill each of these circles to make the fabric components.
When the components find their way back into our workshop, we employ more hand-sewing techniques to transform them into the objects our customers enjoy.
Each Dukesa we make in the Good Luck, Humans workshop has its own unique combination of fabric components - no two are ever the same.
