Meaning memory in Filipino, our Gunita Shell Clutch is handcrafted from natural macabebe shells; individually cut, shaped, and polished by talented Filipino artisans from Cebu. Minimalist and lightweight, our Gunita Clutch adds a perfect touch of Filipiniana elegance to a wedding, gala, or any special occasion.

The intricate macabebe shell inlay creates a beautiful lattice pattern reminiscent of delicate lace. The shells are intentionally left un-dyed and carefully polished by hand to showcase the beautiful, natural sheen of the Philippines Macabebe Shell, adding an elusive and subtle shimmer that will elevate your outfit.

Inspired by nature and the bountiful islands of the Philippines, the Islander Collection by Island Girl is made with genuine shells and natural materials, sustainably sourced from Cebu and its surrounding islands with minimal impact to the environment.

As materials are sourced from nature and crafted by hard working hands, each piece features 'intentional imperfections' - variations in exact size, cut, colour, texture, and patterns. This adds to the individuality and unique story of each piece.
