Wedding Gift Trends: Custom Clutches

Attention all you lovely brides! On that full check list of wedding ‘to-do’s’, don’t forget to treat your bridesmaids to something special… you know those girls who listen to you debate between which exact shade of ‘plum’ is really ‘you’ or if you should go with the ivory vs. pearl chiavari chair? So, why not show them your appreciation! Treat them with one of our favorite hot new trends: handmade and custom designed clutches by S.Mondo. Bridesmaids (and brides alike) are going gaga for them!

S.Mondo was established in 2008, launching her versatile Everyday clutches. This young designer, Sarah Mondo, entered the bridal world in 2010, when her best friend asked her to create purses for her and her bridesmaids; the rest as they say, just fell into place.

“For wedding purses I ask for all details of the wedding day, to get a feel for the bride’s vision, including: location, time of year, colors, themes, etc. If the purses are customized to each bridesmaid, I make sure to find out their individual styles and the designing begins,” noted owner Sarah.

“Many of the bride’s purses are lined with a fabric that is meaningful to them, such as a fabric from their grandmother’s wedding dress or a favorite shirt of the soon-to-be groom. It’s a great way to incorporate the ‘something old, something new…’ tradition, while recycling.

“The Everyday clutches are made from reclaimed leather items, which are handpicked and purchased from a store where proceeds directly benefit Chicago’s Children’s Memorial Hospital. By purchasing an S.Mondo leather clutch, you’re not only directly involved in the recycling process, but also giving back to the Chicago community.”

So, in the midst of your busy planning, remember those exceptional girlfriends who have been there for you throughout the years. To purchase one of these stylish clutches, please send your request through skmondo.com.
