The Hallmarks of a Quality Clutch Bag
Our Royal Stewart Black Clutch Bag is in Black Orissa Silk and Royal Stewart Tartan Silk with accents of Jet crystals from Swarovski®. Chic and classic, but difficult to convey in an image! You can order a small fabric sample first, to experience the true beauty which must be seen and felt, or, you can simply add the handbag to your basket.
What differentiates ours from the rest? Quality; that and a higher shaped neckline! There is nothing more annoying than putting your clutch down and everything falls out of the sides! How many times has this happened over the years? Not with our clutch bag, the shaped neck line comes up over the fold line just enough to make the difference and it stops your lippy, make-up pencils, keys or phone from falling out! We truly believe that you should not only look and feel good with your Silks & Crystals clutch bag, but that you should also have an understanding of what makes it special as well! There's an air of theatricality in emerging with your clutch bag! Your journey to own one of the finest accessories begins here...Hand Made in the Scottish Highlands, especially for you!

Some factors to consider when making a Bag purchase:
ClosureThe closure of your bag can range from zips and snap fasteners, to a turn clasp or a stunning Crystal Button from Swarovski. A closure should be secure but not out of proportion in weight, relative to the delicacy of the material and structure its going onto.
We offer a Sample Service where you can order a small piece of the fabric(s) before buying. It's important to us that you are going to love your purchase. You may equally be happy with the colours and fabrics as you see them on our website. An image can never convey the true look and feel of this truly beautiful, natural, and hypo-allergenic fabric. You are also welcome to visit our Studio which at present is by appointment only, where you can browse through all the James Hare fabric samples at your leisure.
Young girls in the 17th century were taught embroidery as a necessary skill for getting married. This also helped them to make very beautiful handbags. Fashion in Europe was moving towards a slender shape for these accessories by the late 18th century. Inspired by the silhouettes of Ancient Greece and Rome; made of fine fabrics like silk and velvet and carried with wrist straps. After first becoming popular in France, they crossed over into Britain where they became known as indispensables. A trend not adopted by men however, at that point. They used purses and pockets, which became popular in men's trousers. The modern purse, clutch, pouch or handbag, came about in England during the Industrial Revolution, in part, due to the increase in travel by railway.
Silks & Crystals Made with Love for You
We are a micro-sized family run business and not a large mass-producing company. All the accessories we make are made with our customer at the heart of it. When we make your accessories, they are made with love and care to deliver a quality result for you. Some items may take about 4 hours to make, others several days...
When we embellish our products, we do it in a 'less is more' way, using only the finest and smallest, crystals from Swarovski® AG. They simply accentuate, the stunningly beautiful pure silk fabrics we use from James Hare, for which they are, and have been, so famous since 1865. A story of small beginnings with nothing but experience, and understanding of the needs of the tailoring trade, James Hare began the business alone, distributing cloth purchased from small weavers.
If you would like a fabric sample before making your purchase, we have made this available to you on all relevant products. Simply take the SAMPLE option from the drop-down menus on the fabric products and we will be delighted to send this to you. It's important to us that you know exactly what you are buying, before you buy. If you already know, please feel free to simply purchase.
Many products are ready to ship within 48 hours, with many others not taking much longer. Obviously there are busy times of the year such as Christmas and the wedding season, when items may take a little longer but you will be kept updated in the unlikely event of significant delays. The key is to order in plenty of time before you need the item, especially if its for a gift or special occasion. That's not to say we haven't produced a white rabbit or two when required, so...if in doubt, please just ask us anyway.
You can also choose to have your item gift boxed (and sent direct to your recipient) if you're planning a surprise for someone special. Don't know what to choose? Not sure about colour? You could purchase one of our Gift Vouchers and let them choose themselves.
