About Your Custom Clutch Bag
Your stunning clutch bag is a stylish and on-trend accessory, that will make a statement of any outfit. Although larger than a standard clutch, it is still lightweight enough to carry comfortably in your hand on under your arm. The leather tab on the zip allows you to swing the bag on your wrist, for those times when you don't want to hold it. Your artwork is printed on both sides of the bag and also one of the interior walls. This sets your custom made clutch bags apart from any other available. The bag is made from a robust yet soft canvas shell, faux leather or a choice of either smooth or textured Nappa leather with a smooth and glossy satin lining. All clutch bags UK made are created with the utmost care and attention to detail, stitched and sewn in London.

How Your Custom Clutch Bag Is Made And Printed
Every custom clutch is made to order. There is no mass production and every order received is treated individually and carefully to ensure the best finished results. Your design is printed onto our leather material, warm leatherette or canvas fabric; all gorgeous textiles for printing on, thanks to their superior print quality and robust natures. We line your bag with silky smooth Duchess satin, which adds a real bespoke element. Designed in a trapezium shape, this bag truly stands out. Your art covers the whole bag, front and back, and you can even print on one side of the satin interior walls. This pushes the design element to the next level. Your custom clutch is finished with an internal pocket (perfect for stashing your valuables) and a secure zip complete with a leather tab for slipping onto your wrist.
To clean your custom clutch bags, we recommend wiping clean with a damp cloth and mild soapy solution.
You have a lot of room to create your designs, as they take up the whole front and back of the bag. You can have fun creating bespoke and individual designs that no one else will have. If you have a particular style, but always struggle to find the perfect handbag to match it, then this is your chance to make one exactly as you want it to be. Go for bold prints and vibrant colours to make the black trim of the clutch bag pop. Remember that you can also create a design for one of the internal walls of the bag, so if you are designing a clutch for your bag collection, this is a great opportunity to flaunt your logo or branding. It will be statement yet not overpowering.
Reviews for Clutch Bags

This is the second purse I have purchased from Contrado. The artist whose work is exhibited on it is my niece by marriage and I love her work. The first time I ordered on a Saturday and received my purse the following Thursday in Las Vegas and I was bowled over! This time the order was placed on Sunday evening and received on Wednesday morning! You just keep getting better! Love the merchandise and the prompt service!

Frequently asked questions:
What is the clutch made from?
This gorgeous clutch is made from a choice of four types of fabric. The exterior is either made from our durable yet soft woven canvas, warm leatherette or a choice of smooth or textured nappa leather, all of which print like a dream. The inner lining is made from luxurious Duchess satin.
Which parts can I design?
Your new clutch is very special, as not only can you create designs for both sides of the exterior, but you can also create a design for one of the interior satin walls. Customised lining!
Is it easy to carry?
Clutches by tradition are normally "clutched" in the hand (hence the name). However, you can also comfortably carry this bag under your arm, or swung from your wrist with the leather wrist tab.

What's the best resolution to print in?
We print at 200dpi, which is a good combination of quality and file weight. Ideally, your image should be scaled to 100% at 200dpi, this means that no resizing of your file occurs stopping any interpolation.
Should I save my file as a TIFF or JPEG?
For multi-coloured or very detailed files we recommend using a tiff format, but they must be flattened. For simple colours and low detail files, a jpeg is fine.
Which colour model should I choose? RGB or CMYK?
If each individual colour is specifically important to your design, choose CYMK as our setup will print each colour with the closest possible match within our available range. If the relationship between the colours within the image is more important, choose RGB, this will reduce all colours equally to fit within our range.
What does GSM mean?
Grams per Square Meter (GSM) is an international standard for measuring the weight of paper or fabric. GSM uses the weight of a square meter (1000 x 1000mm) as an indication of the weight and thickness of a given fabric. We class 20-100gsm as light (summer fabrics, gauzes and fine silks), 101-249 gsm as medium (most clothing fabrics) and 250+ gsm as heavy (upholstery fabrics, and other specialist fabrics).
What are the bleed areas?
When designing your product, it’s best to make sure that your image is slightly larger than needed. In printing, the extra printed image is referred to as a “Bleed Area” or margin, and it is removed from the finished piece. A bleed area acts as a buffer for slight inconsistencies in the manufacturing process. however, it’s important to fill your bleed areas completely, or you may end up with white, unprinted strips along the edge of your finished product.
Do you print on garments a customer supplies?
Unfortunately not. All our garments are printed on flat fabric and sewn into finished products, which gives a better, finished result and all-over print. We test meticulously so that we know what gets the best results on our fabrics, and our facilities cater perfectly to them. We do however print sublimation paper to order, so if you have access to a heat press you can press your fabrics or flat garments easily.
Can you Align a Pattern or design across panels of a garment?
We always strive for the greatest accuracy when printing and constructing your garments. However, due to unavoidable stretch or movement of the fabric during the stitching process, we cannot guarantee perfect pattern registration across garment seams. We are generally accurate within 2-3mm, which Is close enough for most patterns but may show slight issues with detailed geometric patterns.
Can I print my own Labels?
Most of our garments now come with printable label space for you to add your own company information and branding! If you would like to sew in your own labels, we also offer Printed Fabric Labels here.
How is your fabric printing eco-friendly?
With environmental consciousness in mind, our fabrics are all printed using completely water-based inks. This means no chemicals or solvents are used. Our heat fixing procedure fixes the colours and prints, avoiding the downsides of steaming, such as excess or contaminated water returning into the waste system. We have one facility in London where we conduct all the printing, production and fulfillment.
