As a quick follow-up to last week’s DIY post, for those who are not into sewing and want a purse right now, Katie Gordon of Cheeky Leopard is making lovely clutch bags out of vintage Japanese textiles too. There has been a spate of birthday gifts circling my friends right now and this is the lovely one I received. My friends had no trouble picking as it actually screamed my name!
Some others recently given include this one…
…and this one. One of her signatures is the contrast lining found inside the bags.
She even makes them out of Japanese indigo fabric for a more casual feel.
Tiny coin purses, eyeglass cases and small cosmetic bags are also available in cheeky little prints!
Cheeky Leopard is based out of Tokyo, but she has an Etsy shop and sells all over the world!
