Clutch 2

Two years ago, Alabama’s Leigh Ann Higdon and Sharon Gilbert headed for the family barn. To start Old Clutch, a leather goods business, south of Birmingham.

Amid the barn’s time-worn tools and vintage cars, the sisters-in-law create cool clutches, plus edgy laptop and iPad cases. For added personality, each one-of-a kind leather piece is embellished with sewn-on trinkets, buckles, naturally shed antlers or jewelry worn by their grandmothers.

The fashionable cross-body bag is a best seller. So is the iPad case, which can be used as a clutch. The newest designs include the roomy “Field” and “Seed” bags.

Rugged, yet sophisticated, the bags and cases range from $130 to $265. Men’s styles are available too. Visit In the Atlanta area, find Old Clutch at T. Clothing, 3719 Old Alabama Road, Suite 200G, in Johns Creek.
