The clutch or envelope bag was born and it quickly became very popular. The flat rectangular bag without a handle was carried in the hand or under the arm. Some closed with a cut or zipper and others, such as this envelope bag, with a flap. The flap that covers the entire front of the envelope bag is decorated with geometric motifs in contrasting colors. This streamlined design gives a nod to the avant-garde art of artists such as Piet Mondriaan.
On display in the exhibition “It’s a Family Affair” until april 2020.
