This kidney shaped Nantucket Lightship Basket clutch is the first one that Michael has done with ebony in this shape. This client chose to have ebony rims and tops for a very elegant look. When Michael does the ebony rim on a basket it is actually carved out rather than bent like oak rims. The clasp is a carved scallop shell design done by Michael also. The clutch baskets have become very popular and Michael is now doing them with a strap that can be used or left inside in a little pouch. This picture shows the basket with the cord inside. The liner and the pouch are made from ultra suede.
