Large clutch purses are usually made of very sturdy and strong fabrics like patent leather, denim, canvas etc. They might have a handle to hold them or a flap on top to keep everything inside in place. One can clutch these by the handle or just by the flap with their hand. Some of them come with zippered pockets on the inside, but depends on how large the purse is. If the purse isn’t too big, there is usually not any additional pocket inside.
Smaller clutch purses have more choice in fabrics in general. They can be made of satin, patent leather, polyester, chiffon, even cotton. They are mostly embellished with rhinestones, beads and sequins or crystals of some kind. The closure on small clutch purses is a very important part of the whole piece, because they are usually made very artistically and are decorated with rhinestones and beads. The hardware on the purse usually matches all the way, the metal on the outside, to the closure, the chain strap and the rhinestones are usually all the same color.
