About the project:
The Mara Clutch and Shoulder Bag is a stylish handbag, with a soft yet structured body and a super cool reversible flap. This design gives you the perfect opportunity to showcase 2 different materials or 2 different colors.
The reversible flap features a cutout for the handle, making it possible to be worn as a strapless clutch. Additionally, it also has a removable shoulder length chain strap and can be worn as an elegant shoulder bag.
It closes with cleverly-installed, truly invisible magnets. The back has a sexy fully-lined slip pocket, made just how the professionals do it, by turning the edges. At 15" wide, it provides plenty of room for all your necessities, without feeling oversized.
The inside features a generous zipper pocket as well as a slip pocket with piping detail. The body of the bag features darts, to give it depth, without making it bulky.
This handbag is the epitome of feminine chic. It is super versatile, and although it features lots of professional details, it is fairly simple to construct. It can be dressed up for a night out or down for everyday errands.
