Entry Description

The Tango Pouch is Gretchen’s modern interpretation of the 20’s evening wristlet bag. Eccentrically shaped, this sleek little design piece is a one-of-a-kind statement bag.

It can be worn either hand-held or dangling freely down from the wrist, allowing the wearer to have both hands free. The sophisticated folding-magnet closure construction allows for an unexpectedly easy and wide opening.

Soft waxed calf skin leather makes for an incredibly pleasant touch of the handle and puffy side inserts, intentionally contrasting with the more constructed main body made from so-called ‘glazed’ leather. Elaborate hand-applied profiling details underneath the leather of the plum-shaped main body add dimension and richness to the clean shape.
