The Moebius Clutch


The Moebius Clutch I am passionate about creating unique leather objects and also deeply care about our natural environment. This is my initial contribution to an upcoming range of holistically designed and hand made artefacts. As a tribute to the Moebius Strip this formed leather clutch makes reference to the circularity and wholeness of life; a never-ending cycle. The sculpted object functions as a purse when embraced by the hand, snugly tucked into concave forms and directed into place by the wrist strap. When away from the body the design stands alone as an intriguing artefact of pure craftsmanship and simple beauty. Volker Koch
