AW LIMITED: 24K
Back in the spring, Nashville based artist Brent Stewart asked me to sew him a black linen base for an art installation that included a gold coated large ring. Immediately I was struck with the contrast of soft black linen against the metallic gold. I couldn’t get the idea out of my head to create something similar, so I began my search for gold coated thread. What I ended up with was some vintage kimono silk from Japan that is coated in 24k gold. I plied the silk 7 times and saddle stitched Horween Orion black hide up into a petite long 5×10″ clutch. There are 7 of these clutches available.
