|Clare Vivier bags are the perfect size and an easy essential bag. It's taken me years to find the right bags for Nonchalant Mom and I have finally found the bags I love from Clare, every one of them has their place and they are all so perfect for every day and going out! All bags are made in the USA (California to be exact) so they are very proudly "locally made". Clare Vivier is a collection of bags that embodies timeless style over trend, quality over hype, and progress over abstraction. They are just great! The simple tote is one of my favorites, and it has the flat hard bottom which I like (it can make a chic tote for work papers!). The simple tote measures approx. 15" x 13" x 6" - the handles are black leather and there is an shoulder strap that can be taken off or hid inside the tote. The purple suede is soft and elegant.
