Tribal print material has been trendy for some time now, and its popularity has now spilled over into clutch purse design. Navaho, Ikat, African and other ethnic style prints are featured on many clutch purses as an intriguing design element. These printed purses are usually seen on envelope clutches, since the envelope shape tends to have more surface area for showing off an intricate tribal design. Neat adornments like an arrowhead ring may also accompany these trendy summer clutch bags.
