Friends that Rhyme

Everything has a story...and the beauty of those stories is reflected in our handmade, upcycled clutches. Created with a conscious mindset and fair fashion approach, our Obi Collection pieces add eye-catching statement style to your wardrobe. Pairing vintage Japanese luxury with modern function, these bags dress up your weekend attire and complement your most elegant evening wear. A perfect treat for yourself or gift for someone special, our clutches are perfect for someone who enjoys unique accessories.

We proudly partner with small independent makers, with our primary production house being a social enterprise in Germany. Not only do they provide meaningful employment for refugees with incredible talents, the organisation is centered around building community and roots for newcomers.

Friends That Rhyme is the venture of two besties…Sabine and Nadine. We met while living as expats in Beijing and while we have both moved on to new locations, we love sharing stories and experiences with our amazing customers all over the world.
