Levant is an approximate historical geographical  term referring to a large area in the Eastern Mediterranean  region of Western Asia, It derives from the Italian Levante, meaning “rising”, implying the rising of the Sun in the east 

and is broadly equivalent to the term al Mashriq (Arabic: ٱلْمَشْرِق‎) meaning “the eastern place, where the Sun rises”.

A Clutch is a slim, flat handbag without handles or shoulder strap, designed to be held in the hand.

As the name indicates it is hope and rising like the sun that Levant Clutch symbolizes, it is a Syrian originated Brand Of Clutches created by two beautiful, inspiring Ladies mixing their Love of their traditions and their believe in the creativity of the levantine crafts as well as their passion for fashion.
