Item of the Day: Sseko Designs Mountain View Clutch

I’m trying to maintain a healthy purse diet. I’m prone to carrying everything I think I’ll ever need in a bag over my shoulder and really, that’s just excessive. And painful. I don’t always need an extra pair of flats, a full 22 oz bottle of water, a book, a notebook, and all of my makeup. I CAN leave the house with the bare minimum. So in order to drop that weight and keep it off, I needed to minimize the bags themselves. Then I found these adorable clutches from Sseko Designs and the Mountain View clutch in particular, stole my heart.

Handmade in Africa, Sseko Designs hires recent secondary school graduates for a nine month period to live and work together, while earning money that will go directly towards their university education. These women will not work for Sseko forever. They will go on to be doctors, lawyers, politicians, writers and teachers that will bring change and unification to a country divided and ravished by a 22 year-long war. The Mountain View clutch is handmade with genuine leather and local Oregon Pendleton Wool.
