Soft pink nappa kangaroo leather Hedy Convertible Clutch, with the flap featuring leather that I hand dyed and painted in my Brisbane studio. The painted hide was originally a neutral grey kangaroo leather made in South East Queensland, and the tanning process didn’t quite go to plan. Then I’ve then hand applied a leather dye, leather paint and a top coat. There are some areas where the dye has soaked into the base leather, and other areas have a splatter or drip finish. The leather itself has a lot of texture in the leather and variation in the finish.

The lining is 100% cotton. This purse can be used as a clutch, over the shoulder or cross body bag.

This design was named after Hedy Lamarr, actress, producer and inventor. While a Hollywood film star, at the start of World War II, Hedy co-invented a version of frequency-hopping spread spectrum communication for torpedo guidance. Like it’s namesake, this bag is glamours and multi-faceted, and is more than meets the eye.

The shoulder strap at it’s shortest is 77cm and fully adjusted is 133cm, measuring from each end of the swivel snaps.
Measurements are approximate as the leather is soft
20cm tall
28cm at widest
4cm wide gusset

How does it convert - metal press snaps inside will hold the tabs in place, simply unclip both sides of the strap, and snap the tabs inside to make a streamlined clutch bag. No need to change bags!

The dye method results in a unique finish each time. Inside there a zipper gusset to ensure everything is secure inside, and there is an additional small zipper pocket inside.

Leather made in Australia, and the lining fabric was sourced from an Australian business. Bags are designed and made in my MEW Designs studio in Brisbane Australia

As the leather is a natural product there may be slight variations in the texture and finish. The hand processing on the leather makes it more delicate and should be treated in a similar way to a suede.
