Toriska clutches. Designer Spotlight

Toriska clutch purses from nice and nautical to tropical brights have captured my attention. How fun would this red and white stripe number be with some white jeans or khaki's?


When I started my first real job I carried a simple black leather
envelope style clutch. I felt so grown up.

I cannot recall exactly when I abandoned using a clutch daily in
favor of a shoulder bag, but these handmade cuties have me
longing to lighten the load I tote around each day.

Each clutch is handmade by Tori who hails from Philadelphia, PA.
Tori was taught how to sew by her mother as a child but didn't 
really do much with her skills until a few years ago.

Feeling a bit tropical?  This silk tangerine and pink fits the bill.

Making purses began as a hobby and later turned into a business.

Tori's line up ranges from shoulder bags to wallets but her
true love is clutches.
Depending on the style, they take two to over four house to make.

Personally, I was pretty surprised to find  handmade
frame closing, rhinestone silk clutches that can hold more then a lipstick 
and keys so reasonably priced.

 Getting the fabric perfectly into the frame isn't as easy as it looks!

I can see this turquoise dupioni silk being made for bridesmaids
for a seaside wedding. Tori gives discounts for wedding party clutches.

Love the color but don't want the rhinestones?
Tori offers some custom options.

Give a unique bridal shower gift with the brides
initials inside the purse.

While navy and white is my standard go to color and I really like this yet,

I am completely smitten with this happy looking tangerine silk.
....getting daring in my old age.
It's a fun pop of color don't you think?

Spring is just around the corner!
Go on now accessorize, accessorize with a Toriska clutch.

P.S. Toriska sometimes makes napkins rings.

I may have to get these when she gets the fabric back in.

I've been blessed to have my work featured by others.  I'm simply doing the same.

What beautiful purses!

I carry very little in my purse, so don't feel the need to carry around a big tote - what I normally carry around (keys, zip coin purse, and cell phone) would easily fit in one of those purses! Thanks for sharing!

The bags are wonderful and the colours so vibrant but I am drawn to the navy and white stripe, it's perfect.

I almost thought the
napkin ring was a cuff
that you wear! {Wouldn't
that be cute when it is
SO hot out and you don't
want to wear a leather
or hot metal one?} Cute,
cute clutches, too!

Happy Valentine's Day,
xx Suzanne

I cannot make up my mind so I will have them all! They are gorgeous! I am following you from Rome, Italy. I wear shoulder bags because here in Rome if you have a clutch bag, you can be sure it will be clutched by a thief or pickpocket.
