The fabric of this clutch might be about 50 years old. Its fiber is all polyester I guess and shiny if it get´s hit by light. This winter was the time to work with it. A small piece of fabric out of a samples catalog for home deco, maybe from the sixties of last century. To make it become a clutch might have been a good decision....there were not many more options anyway, because of its small size ... For the first photo I put the clutch on the surface of our little pond, which is deeply frozen at the moment.
