There will be so many amazing moments on your wedding day, but one particular instance stands apart from the rest: the moment when your bridal suite shenanigans have to take a short pause so that you can read through a love note from your best friend. The energy in the room is electric, yet still; emotions in the room are brimming, and you’re trying earnestly to temper your tears, all the while allowing the biggest smile to steal across your face. You’ve made it to your day and your S.O. can’t wait to tell you how perfect and important you are to them, how they’ve been looking forward to this day since the day you met. Their outpouring is everything and you won’t want to part with the prose, we promise you that. So where should you put it, once you’re done reading? The only place that measures up (like actually, though - keep reading 😉), your clutch - and if you’re lucky, it’s The Mrs. Clutch.
Now, we’ll ask you, if you just finished reading a love letter - and yes, a love letter isn’t hyperbole here, it’s the most appropriate way to describe what you’d be reading on the morning of your wedding - would you:
Implore your photographer and videographer to capture all of your feels and zoom in on the words that made your heart flutter especially
Share the sentiments with your sister, mama, and/or grandma - just to remind them how much of a keeper your fiancé turned out to be (as if you or they had any doubt!)
Ask your MOH to put the letter someplace safe so that nothing could happen to it throughout the day
Slide the note into your clutch to keep bae’s words close all day - so that any time you started feeling nervous or overwhelmed, you could open it up, take out the note, and mellow your ever-increasing heartbeat within seconds
D. Sounds pretty right on to us, notably because nestling the note somewhere else, like the top of your dress, could make the ink run… Bride boob sweat is no joke, just sayin!
Maria Caruso Martin, designer of The Mrs. Clutch, launched her company in the midst of a global pandemic having been inspired by the art of letter writing: in particular, the 100-year-old letter writing of her grandfather, who had crafted hundreds in his lifetime with a simple, yet classic quill tip pen. It’s true, nothing ignites a slow burn kind of passion more than putting pen to paper and expressing the full spectrum of human emotions. Drawing from her artistic skill and experience, Maria paid meticulous attention to the size and shape of each of her clutches and envisioned how they would hold handwritten vows or personal love letters exchanged on the day of a wedding, on an anniversary, or a special occasion.
The high-quality Italian Taroni Silk clutches are impeccably-crafted and sourced from Como, Italy (I mean, one of our favorite and most beautiful places in the entire world), while the polished metallic gold and silver options are created in a sustainably-sourced vegan microfiber.
The iconic Quatrefoil hardware that embellishes the magnetic closure flap is comprised of sparkling Swarovski crystals and doubles as a mirror on the interior.
Each style is produced in limited quantities with the Classic Clutch available in six colors, the Envelope Clutch in three and the addition of a hard shell clutch (yaaaas for minaudières) coming soon. The Classic Clutch also features an exclusive interior charm available in three sayings: Miss to Mrs., Love is Love, or Love & Luck.
The Core Charges
The Mrs. Clutch is equally focused on environmental sustainability as it is on style. Their goals are to create beautifully-made, classic handbags in limited quantities to help slow the fashion cycle, in turn, helping minimize waste and reduce overproduction.
“With industry designers raising awareness about slowing the fashion cycle, launching a company with heirloom clutches for the conscientious shopper was not only a perfect fit for my passions, but as my next chapter. When a bride opts for a high-quality piece over a fast fashion alternative, she is also creating a new tradition. One that can begin with carrying The Mrs. Clutch beyond the aisle and passing Love & Luck down to the next generation.” ~ Maria Caruso Martin, Founder & Creative Director
