In the simplest form of a hand clutch, strength and spirit are vividly presented.
Surface chiseled with expressions, into lines and shapes that an enlightened mind would appreciate. Within the geometric boundaries lie a raw impulse lurking in the darkness, ready to break free.
"Every single cut is made the right way. I can see it take form in my head, and I never felt the need to rationalize it. The slanted edge has to be in a particular degree, and the width of the leather arm band has to be its current size, to make the clutch feel right. Once I have everything in place, the creation will look good however you use it."
Choosing materials has always been the most time consuming work for designer Albert Yuan, since it is crucial to find the "right“ material that best interprets the designer's visions.
The exterior is made of WOTANCRAFT's exclusive fabric material, the W.A.L canvas, which stands for the 3 most important aspect of a daily bag:
The canvas material is based off the ultra durable Cordura® 500D fabric, with the underside PU coated to prevent water seepage. To create more of a natural cotton texture, the surface is ground and waxed infused, so that the fabric will develop scuff marks and patina with age, while the protective nature of the material lives on.
We've sourced an unique full grain hand processed Italian cowhide, with uneven wave patterns on leather surface.
The full-grain battle distressed cowhide straps preserves all the natural skin pores and creases of the beast, expressing the rugged nature of WOTANCRAFT's characteristic.
The interior lining is made of earth tone green cotton canvas, coherent with the rugged charcoal look of the external canvas fabric.
Large single-piece cowhide shoulder pad, a simple and elegant combination.
There are 2 carrying modes for the clutch: hand held & bag shoulder carry.
In the hand-held mode, simply run your arm across the front leather band to secure the clutch.
A detachable shoulder strap with leather pad can be mounted to the large D-rings at the back, to create a comfortable carrying mechanism.
