I’ve focused quite a bit on clothing in these Spotlight Made in the USA posts, because frankly as I’ve shared, venturing out of that box is difficult. Heck, it’s difficult in the box! With brands often beginning USA made then moving overseas, or doing one part USA made and another ambiguous part overseas. When you get into other merchandise, it often becomes increasingly difficult, but not impossible! (I’m still looking for awesome made in USA shoe brands to share, if you know of one).
I have been following Clare Vivier on Instagram for some time and recently realized that her amazing line of clutches/bags/carry-alls are made in the USA too!
The brand about page states
While her bags are available at retailers worldwide, Vivier firmly roots herself in the Los Angeles design community, where her line has been made exclusively since 2008.
And after watching a long interview about her on Youtube, I learned she began making all the bags herself! So I’m happy for her and that her vision fruitioned! The Fall 2015 lookbook pictures have me lusting for one of her bags now!

I knew quite a few ladies that were rocking the Clare V. clutches – I personally rather get something that can be slinged over my shoulder, so I’ll be saving up for a beautiful tote one day!
