Our Alys Collection marries avant-garde style with the needs of any modern, fashion-forward woman. Ceri named this collection for her mother’s best friend Alice, a spirited mother of seven, who always maintained her strength to shine. True to its namesake, this bag is versatile and eye-catching, while staying sturdy enough to become your favorite travel companion.
The Alys clutch comes with a removable and adjustable strap to be worn as a cross-body or shoulder bag. However, Ceri prefers it as a clutch, and took care to design the cross strap along the front, so it can be carried under your arm or securely in your hand. (Just slip your hand through the strap, and that baby’s secure.) There is no hardware visible on this clutch, however it features hidden brass D-rings for the removable strap, and a natural interior lining to keep the leather protected. Outrageously simple in its design, the Alys clutch is a perfect companion for travel. Cross-body during the day, and a sleek clutch at night, you can wear this beauty with your favorite sundress, or with heels for a night out.
This signature handbag is made in America in many leather and color options. Our Italian calfskin leather (Stone, Black Calf, Goldenrod, Pacific Blue, Moss, Honey) is tanned by a team of experts in San Miniato, Italy. Sturdy and thick with a subtle shine, calfskin leather will grow softer as it ages, adding to its allure and character. In Stripe (Russet, Grey Suede), the bag features a painted black stripe across the front flap—a stunning and unexpected statement that will wear beautifully with age. But no matter what color you choose, at this level of quality, this handbag will become an heirloom for your children and grandchildren to carry long into the future.
When it comes to caring for your bag, you don’t have to be delicate. Each hide has unique color and grain variations, which reveal the leather’s natural beauty. Leather darkens over time, depending on frequency of wear and exposure to sunlight. Scars or marks are natural attribute of naked leather, which will enhance the patina as it adapts to your lifestyle. When necessary, we recommend using a leather cream (we like Leather CPR) to maintain the leather’s vivacity.
