Enter to Win a Basik855 Travel Clutch!

travel clutch My good friend Leigh Morlock is the creative director of a company I feel passionately about: Basik 855. I met Leigh four years ago soon after I moved to Cambodia. I knew immediately that she would become my best friend there. The company that she created from the ground up, Basik 855, formerly known as Push Pull Cambodia, employs Cambodians doing what they love, and what they’ve done well for generations: producing quality Ikat products.

The products they produce are really well made, cute and fashionable and also durable. Everything is made by hand and the fabric is woven and dyed according to Ikat tradition, which is the speciality in the province she’s working in (Takeo). I personally own two bags, a clutch, a scarf and a wallet. The purse and wallet I use every single day and have for over a year (and I have a scarf that I’ve worn every winter for the past three years). Nothing has broken, the colours haven’t faded.

Basik is holding a Kickstarter now, and in just a few days they’re almost 25% of the way to their $45,000 goal in order to release their fall line. It’s so exciting watching other people find out about a company I’ve been passionate about since it was merely an idea. I’d like to help spread the love of Basik 855, its incredible fashions and its commitment to fair wages in a country I consider a second home. I’ve pledged $119, and with that pledge I will be receiving three more adorable scarves and a travel clutch. I’m already the owner of a clutch, so I’d like to give this part of my pledge away to a lucky blog reader. Enter my contest below and win your own Basik 855 travel clutch!

    So, I really like this idea and company, but I like the travel clutch in the skye pattern like you have your bags in rather than the patterns they are doing the kickstarter with. I think I am going to buy the clutch on their site and then just back the kickstarter for $25.

    Is the little bag you have what they call a “zip wallet” on their website, or a “travel clutch”?

    So annoying. I just tried to post and I think it ate my post. Anyhow…

    I think I am going to buy the skye travel clutch on their website, and then back the kickstarter for $25. I like the skye pattern like you have better.

    Do you have what they call on their website a “zip wallet”?

    What a great concept! I’ll have to check out the kick starter campaign, but I will say, that honeycomb is quite fetching!
