It’s National Handbag Day

October 10th, 2016 Comments off

October 10th is National Handbag Day and at Clipa, that means celebrating our favorite accessory with a little TLC. Whether you have a large, roomy tote or a tiny crossbody, purses can be kept in tip top shape with these ideas:

If it’s been awhile since you’ve cleaned out the interior, take a towel, lay it on a dresser or bed, and remove the contents of your bag. If you have a mini vac for your keyboard or a handheld vacum and the bag’s interior is sturdy, vacum up tiny grains of sand or lint. Alternatively, a piece of packing tape can be used. If your bag has a soft, thin interior, such as satin, forgo the vacuuming and simply turn the bag over to remove any fine particles in the bag’s seams. Vinyl, cotton and canvas bags can be lightly sprayed with an unscented disinfectant, such as Lysol, to remove bacteria and viruses. The exterior of patent leather, pleather and nylon bags can be wiped down with a baby wipe or clean, soft cotton rag. If you have a suede or fine leather bag, a leather care expert at a shoe repair shop has products to clean and protect leather bags to extend the life of the bag.

Before placing items back in your bag, ask yourself if you really use everything you’re carrying around. As a general rule, any makeup older than 24 months (mascara and eyeliner, 3 months and nail color, 1 year) should be replaced. Some items may be better left in your car, gym bag, work, or home. Perhaps duplicates or travel sized versions can be purchased and left in these places instead of carried everywhere.

Finally, check your Clipa purse hanger. It has been tested to last for 10 years of daily use without tarnishing. It should be in great working condition, ready to keep your bag off the ground and away from germs, water, dirt and worse. If not, give us a call at 1-888-804-0661 or email Because while today is National Handbag Day, for some of us, it’s every day of the year!

September 27th, 2016 Comments off

From germy bathrooms to helping a player change into his or her gear, there’s plenty of opportunities for your bag to come into contact with bacteria, water and dirt. Unless you have a Clipa bag hanger. Clockwise from top left, here are some ways that parents use Clipa: Unlike most other hooks (based on an old design), ours hooks onto fences. Simply hang your purse or camera bag while snapping pics of your favorite player on the field. ‘Indoors at a hockey rink? Clip it right to stadiums or bleachers while cheering on the team. And if you’re at ice level, Clipa uses just a half an inch to hang your bag off the floor while you get close to the action. No other hook hangs in less space. And finally, Clipa’s circular, modern design means it will work on rails–so helpful when getting equipment on or off your player. And of course, it works on restroom stall doors, at the snack bar, and restaurant tables–perfect for that post-game celebration at your team’s favorite place.

Clipa Purse Hangers: Great for Cold and Flu Season

Keep germs at bay the easy way

Keep germs at bay the easy way

Germs are everywhere. And because they go everywhere with us, handbags often pick up germs, dirt and worse. By some estimates, viruses can live on indoor surfaces for as long as seven days! With the cold and flu season peaking now, here are some ways Clipa bag hangers can help:

Bathroom sinks – Clipa purse hooks can be hung from bathroom divider walls near sinks, the sink itself or the counter

Restroom stall – Can be used on toilet seat cover dispenser, paper roll dispensers, rails, stall door if there’s no hook, wall, shelf and more

Restaurant tables and bars – simply open one end and hang your purse with Clipa on most tabletops and bars

Doctor’s exam rooms – If there’s no hook on the back of the door, Clipa can be hung from a drawer pull, countertop, bookcase, or rail

Shopping cart – handle

Cafes and coffee houses – hangs instantly from table

So keep the hand sanitizer and wipes handy, wash hands frequently, periodically wipe down your bag, and hang with Clipa this winter.

Sporting Clipa is Always Game

May 12th, 2015 Comments off

A sports event often means carrying a mini backpack, binoculars or purse to the game. A Clipa bag hanger works where traditional purse hooks can’t, including drink cup holders (works on stadium seats as well as in bathrooms), section rails, stall walls and doors, sinks, bars, restaurant tables, bleacher railings even fences. Indoors or out, a Clipa is the stylish way to keep your bag in sight, easy to access, and off the floor or ground.

Made with Love

Some accessories take awhile to make because of the work involved. When Clipas come back from the metal caster, each piece must be hand polished to a mirror finish and then plated 3 times. After that, each one is assembled by hand then tested thoroughly before being cleaned again and carefully boxed. Crystal Clipas need even more TLC: these use special drilled parts that fit each lead-free Swarovski chaton perfectly. These brilliant crystals are set using a special process then assembled, tested, cleaned and packaged. That’s why we make Clipa in small batches here: it takes time to do things right, to do them well, when you care as much as we do.

Beveled table edge no problem for Clipa

August 14th, 2014 Comments off

Clipa is unique among handbag hangers for many reasons but one of its underappreciated strengths is arm design. Because each arm is angled, Clipa hangs extremely well, even on beveled tables like this one. Beveled edges are found in conference rooms, bars and some restaurants. Each patented Clipa hook also has non-slip pad on each end. We don’t use ugly black foam that can leave marks on tablecloths or big rubber pads that can degrade over time. Instead, Clipa’s grip pads are clear and very durable so they’ll stand up to years of daily use. In fact, it is not uncommon for a Clipa to outlast the handbag it’s on. So whether Clipa is hanging your new fall bag from a counter with a beveled edge, a vertical bar, or a flat surface, America’s purse hanger won’t let you down.

Our Customers Say It Best

April 9th, 2014 Comments off

1101onshoulderWhen you really love something, you want everyone to know. Customer Cathy Harrington recently emailed us about discovering Clipa purse hangers: “I chose it over the cheaper brand right next to it. What drew me to it? Sleek, color choice, and it looked sturdy. What I don’t like about competitors is the flat disk that goes on the table. I had those and my handbag slipped off the table top and it didn’t support the weight of my handbag. So I bought the Clipa. Then the inevitable happened. My friends saw it, I passed it around and went back and bought 4 more. I will buy more as gifts, in fact, just bought more today.” Considering that your handbag will be you throughout your entire day, a well designed, reliable hanger for your most-loved accessory just makes sense.
