Rafe New York 'Karolina' clutch

One of the many reasons why I am proud to be a Filipino is because of the many Filipinos who are making their name in the international scene like Rafe Totengco who is one of the established leather goods brand in the US.  His first collection of bags were featured at Bergdorf Goodman, a posh shopping site in in New York, and the rest is history.  An example of his work is this 'Karolina' clutch with intricate tribal-inspired beading details on the magnetic snap closure flap.
