Shown here in rust, this southwest-inspired textile design is so marvelous for a handbag!  This textile was originally intended to grace the seats of a 1975 AMC Pacer.  Kim found an entire warehouse of dead-stock auto fabrics in South Central Los Angeles in the early 2000's and started her line doing only vintage car.  Durability of these fabrics was a benefit, as well as the textile designs.  Kim tracked down the original car catalog that shows the textile in the car so we know it really happened!   Wouldn't it be awesome if cars still came with cool interiors like these?!  Sad it no longer exists.  But you can own a piece of history.  The Pacer was marketed as the first "small wide car."  Ha!  AMC is a car company that no longer exists, that was responsible for doing amazing things like the Gremlin & the Javelin.  And hiring Levi's to do a denim interior, as well as Gucci.  How I yearn for days of relation to 70s automotive design and uniqueness. 

The Cut-Out Clutch has a cut out for your hand, so it's easy to hold.  It open with a hinged frame, that pops open and closes.  Lined in black with an inside zipper pocket.  Always USA made with the finest quality.  Dimensions:  12.25" wide x 8.25" high
