My friend Nat, owner and director of The Coveterie showroom, recently sent me an Ann & Arayata clutch with the following note: I think you'll love these bags! She was right. Not only do I adore the bags but I also adore the brand's philosophy. Every bag is hand crafted in a rural village in the Philippines using old wooden looms. When you purchase one of their bags, you are supporting the livelihood of these artisans as well as L.I.F.E. For Health - Ann & Arayata donates 20% of its profits to supporting this volunteer-run charity that works in the Philippines and Rwanda.
I adore the simple lines and textured rafia of my clutch and can totally see myself wearing it during the day with a simple dress or in the evening with high pumps and skinny jeans.
