Exclusive, limited-edition bait bag clutches coming to Portland Trading Company

Since I know how much you all loved the Bait Bag Clutches, when I spotted these on Alaina Harris’ instagram account I got excited. She was kind enough to give us an exclusive sneak peek into her very limited-edition holiday clutches.

I’ll let Alaina fill you in. “The interior is still made from mesh bait bag material which also matches the exterior strip down the middle. These clutches all have a leather interior pocket. The bottom corners on the outside of the bag are also the same black leather which was repurposed from and old jacket. The outside plaid panels are 100% wool and were repurposed from an old blanket. This clutch is all about texture, and the marriage of different materials which have been recycled into a handmade product.”

These will be available exclusively at Portland Trading Company in about a week. There are only about 20 in the collection and will retail for $98. Don’t miss out – I have a hunch these will go fast.
