Who gave this Clara permission to be so gorgeous?
Abstract Serenity’s bursts of fresh color paired with abstract shapes give it a modern Zen vibe that’ll mellow you out anytime you see it. The faint florals prepare you for warmer weather while the gesture marks transport you to an abstract art museum far away from home.
The bright and airy print allows for so many uses. It’s the ideal size for a date night clutch, cosmetic bag, or to get your larger bags more organized. Clara can do it all and we love her for that.

About our Spring 2021|Serenity Collection
The Transition Collection is about finding beauty in the details. It focuses on keeping your Zen amid an ever-changing life around you. Finding ourselves in a new world of change can be stressful and cause uncertainty. These are the times we most want to recoil into our safe space of complacency. Transition challenges this mindset and pushes to break free from it entirely. Find peace in places you’ve never thought to look and learn how to change your perception of the world around you. Transition is about shifting expectations to be more positive and allowing yourself to shatter the status quo.
As we embark on learning to be liberated from these fears this season, we will focus on three key words—Serenity, Emerge, and Transform.
Serenity is the first essential need within a transition. Defined as a state of being. This is about a mindset shift.
Inspiration behind the name
Clara Barton—The Helper and Nurturer
Who would've thought an extremely quiet and shy young woman would become the founder and leader of the American Red Cross, National First Aid Society, and open the first ever free school in New Jersey? Not us—but then again, why should we ever be surprised when a woman accomplishes amazing things?
To be honest, Barton’s story is a lot about her rising to the occasion time and time again, and then others coming in and taking over, kicking her out of the thing she built. (major thumbs down) But it never stopped her or even slowed her down. In fact, it allowed her to build and lead more and for that, we’re grateful.
As a young woman, she became a schoolteacher to help with her timidity. As mentioned earlier, she was so good at her job that she was funded to open the first free school in New Jersey. (How cool!) It was so successful that she had to hire more teachers to help out. When her time ended there, she began work nursing soldiers to health during the Civil War. She was a natural at collecting, organizing, and distributing supplies and her tenderness and care made all the difference. It was this desire to offer aid that fueled the creation of the American Red Cross to respond to natural disasters as well. During the war, she became known as “Angel of the Battlefield” for her efforts in aiding these soldiers so close to the front lines and for her quick thinking and creativity when supplies ran out (think corn husk bandages).
Barton’s nurturing and go-getter spirit is what we admire and honor her for—because who knows where we would turn to without her efforts for the American Red Cross. Thanks Clara!
