A Closer Look at the Akbar Delights Cairo Clutch Bag

Posted on 10 December 2016

The Cairo Clutch Bag by Akbar Delights shouts sassy! It is an all-round clutch bag for an easy day to night transformation. As a matter of fact, the Cairo Clutch Bag can spice up any outfit. For example, a casual jeans to work or a colourful dress at night. This beautifully designed clutch is handmade in India, while embodying the very essence of loud spirited colours you'll be yearning for during those cool seasons.

All Akbar Delights clutches are entirely handmade from locally sourced materials such as cotton, polyester and beads. All the detail is attached using hand-embroidery. The bags' materials as well as their beautiful colours and patterns represent the cultural vibrance of the place they are made in: New Delhi in India. Behind every bag is a story not just of the culture but also the artisan that made it. By working with local craftspeople in their workshop in India and gratefully accepting long production times, Akbar Delights strongly engages in crafts preservation and the slow fashion movement.
