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!

If you would like one made in your favourite colours please go to the Custom-Made Product page.

Some factors to consider when making a Bag purchase: 

The Shell
The shell (outside) of your bag is made using the finest quality pure silk fabrics, from one of the world leaders, James Hare. 

Interlining/Canvas
Depending on the bag style, we use a combination of interlining and/or canvas.

Lining
Bag lining can either be a base colour like black, one which matches the outside of your bag or one that's a complete contrast. This is dependant not only on the style of the bag and the facilities it has, but also your preferred choice.

Thread
We use 100% pure silk thread in the construction of your bag. Investing in a quality thread is important; it's what holds your accessory together after all!

Stitching
The stitching of your clutch bag is done using a mixture of hand stitching and domestic sewing machine stitching.

Straps & Decoration
Our straps vary from using the bag fabric to loop chains or there is also our exquisite, crystal bezel chains from Swarovski®. Many of our bags are embellished with crystals from Swarovski® or you can always ask us to add some if your product doesn't show as including crystals.

Closure
The 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.

Some Handbag & Purse Snippets...
A handbag is commonly known as a purse in USA. The term 'purse', originally referred to a small bag for holding coins; the term 'handbag' first began to appear in the early 1900's. 'Pocketbook' is another term used in the United States. Purses were born via early, modern Europeans, who wore a purse for the sole purpose of carrying their coins. They were made of soft fabric or leather and were worn by men as often as women. Indeed, the Scottish sporran is a survival of this custom. The oldest known purse dates back more than 5000 years. It was a pouch, and it was worn by a man. Men's purses were revived by designers in the 1970's in Europe. Since the 1990's, designers have marketed a more diverse range of accessory bags for men. The names 'man bag', 'man-purse' and 'murse' have all been used. 

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.
