knot/cord that wounds around and binds the clutch together
traditional chinese button knots

The knot on the k(not) clutch, tote and scarf is inspired by the button knot closure on the traditional chinese clothing, like the cheongsam. Knot in chinese(結) means to bind, reunion, love, etc.  The knot on the clutch is a more modernized version of the traditional button knot. Using round cord to create the knot gives it a unique dimension.  The knot will crafted to other artifacts in the near future, maybe keychains and/or jewelry?
