The ‘Byrsa’ Beach Clutch
An intimate space for your beach day and travel essentials. Clutch bags have a history of importance for men in Greece, originally known as ‘byrsa’ or coin purses. Before the invention of pockets they were used for carrying ‘treasures’ and ‘things not to be exposed’. In recent decades, their satirical purpose has been restored with men tending to possess more essentials and a desire to keep pockets from bulging. It serves as an alternative or complimentary addition to our Beach Weekender, for those who like to travel light.
Our beach bag collection is designed to be water and sand repellent, ideal for day trips to the beach or pool. Hand crafted in the UK using only the finest and ethically sourced materials across Europe.
Available in three unique colours Sea Navy, Sky Blue and Sand Beige, inspired by the Mykonian landscape, forming the basis of The Beach Clutch collection.
Care & Info
