Typically, the person is responsible for keeping a sufficiently tight grasp on her own purse in order to effectively carry it with her. Unusually, these Finger Trap handbags incorporate handles that stick onto the wearer's digits so that limited effort is required to keep a hold on the accessories.
James Piatt's design was inspired by the Chinese finger trap, made from woven bamboo. The sack-like tote and the circular mini models of the purse are topped with leather tubes, braided in a similar fashion. Slide your fingers into the plaited pipes and the weight of Finger Trap handbags and their contents will tighten and narrow the weave. This keeps the clutches attached to your hands.
