What We Love About It
The Arc clutch purse is handmade in Melbourne using sustainably-sourced kangaroo leather that will darken and develop a beautiful patina over time. Arc is zipped with an American-made oxidised brass zip, and sewn with tough bonded UV/moisture/heat resistant nylon thread.
Kangaroo is an extremely strong and durable leather. It's thinner and finer than cowhide, and has very little visible grain. Yet each piece has natural imperfections that highlight the uniqueness of the product.
