Oval Wood Carved Clutch - Sustainable Suar Wood


Eighty hours and four artisans are lovingly dedicated to the meticulous creation of each clutch. Suar, an eco-friendly sustainable wood, is carefully selected, dried and heated. Next the wood is sent to the master box-crafter, who precisely cuts the wood by hand, buffing and polishing into dynamic three-dimensional shapes. 

Once perfect, a Balinese Mangku, a spiritually gifted magical high priest who has been given special artistic powers, carves the wood using flat-tooled sticks dating back to ancient times.

Because of Mehera’s unwavering dedication to maintaining the integrity of her mother’s lines and brushstrokes, she prints a copy of the painting, selects which sections of flowers and birds she will bring to life on the clutch, affixes it to the wood, and has the magical Mangku carve directly into her mother’s lines. 

Once the intense and inspired work is finished the clutch is sent for finishing where luxurious suedes and velvets line the interior and gloss, shine, and color protect the exterior to create illustrious hand-held works of art. Finally, each clutch is blessed with Love and abundance of all that is joyful and real, so that we may all be transported to the true Garden of Paradise within. 

Comes with optional beaded wood crossbody strap, with a leather portion for the shoulder.

In addition, we have a 22 karat gold dipped brass chain handmade in Italy that can be special ordered it to accompany this bag.         

Dimensions: 7.5 in x 2.2 in x 4.5 in

Traveling the globe, Mehera Blum of Blumera, delves deep into the culture and innate skills of foreign lands to create one-of-a-kind hand-sculpted pieces.

Beyond the design, incredible handcraft, vibrant colors, and exotic materials, clients often remark that there is an unusual, almost intangible, essence that is Blumera’s signature mark.

Some call it Love.

Mehera defines herself as a creator, and it is this magic of creation that inspires her.

Blum states, “The inception of the design begins with a spark of inspiration, which comes to me in a visual flash, this energy must take shape and this is creativity: bringing form to living energy.”

Though most of her pieces are handcrafted in Los Angeles, she designs and makes special pieces and collections the world over - whenever and wherever the inspirational spark is set aflame.
