This shimmering clutch by Amsterdam-based designer Hester van Eeghen has a stingray skin exterior and a calfskin interior and is designed to be worn on the hand like jewellery. Early civilisations associated stingrays with power and, based on this notion, van Eeghen’s bag combines modern elegance with bold colours. Van Eeghen remains as involved in her work as she was 30 years ago when she left law studies to pursue her passion for accessory design. She continues to design each piece from her studio in Amsterdam, before travelling to Milan to oversee manufacture in carefully selected workshops.
