Recently, we’ve talked about and praised handmade artists on Etsy for their creativity and lack of much deserved attention. Today, I’ve got something special to introduce to you—Kuma, the book clutch! Made by artisan Mari Ojasaar, Kuma is a handmade leather clutch made to look like a vintage book. A famous quotation or a phrase of your choice is engraved on the outside of the book clutch. It is however still a project in the works. It needs to come alive with your help!
Kuma is on Kickstarter and is in need of a lot of serious “backers” (investors with sweet rewards) by Sunday, February 9 to make Kuma a living creation. As you may know, the deal with Kickstarter is that the artist or project doesn’t get any of the donations if the goal amount isn’t met by the deadline. With every donation, you automatically get something from the artist.
For example: For a mere $15 donation, you get the satisfaction of helping Mari’s project Kuma happen AND get a butterfly brooch from below:
For higher donation amounts, you get bigger rewards—and as you may have guessed, including your very own personalized clutch like that piece of lemon cake above. Head on over to Kickstarter right now to give to a unique project and get back a reward. Watch the video below to learn more and fall in love!
