We are so pleased Amy carried the Art Deco Clutch to this year’s Emmy Awards – she is such a great comedic talent.

Jill Milan®, a provider of designer Italian handbags, today announced actress Amy Poehler carried the luxury brand’s Art Deco Clutch to the 65th Emmy Awards. Ms. Poehler was nominated in the Lead Actress in a Comedy Series category for her NBC series "Parks and Recreation," and also served as a presenter during the ceremony.

"We are so pleased Amy carried the Art Deco Clutch to this year’s Emmy Awards – she is such a great comedic talent," said Jill Fraser, founder of Jill Milan. "The Art Deco in brushed silver she carried is new this season, part of our Fall/Winter Collection, and was part of a great ensemble Amy wore." Ms. Poehler was styled for the Emmys by Karla Welch.

The Art Deco Clutch is an exquisite bag handmade by an Italian artisan. Made of Italian brushed stainless steel, the interior is fully lined and the logo at the top of the clutch conceals the bag’s closure.

Jill Milan handbags are made entirely in Italy, by Italian artisans using Italian materials. Features include hand stitching and metalwork handmade by craftsmen who create jewelry for Europe’s leading luxury brands. All Jill Milan products are free of animal-based materials such as leather, fur and wool – Ms. Fraser was inspired to found Jill Milan because she was unable to find high-quality, luxury handbags that were not made of leather or other animal-based materials. She is a supporter of animal welfare initiatives, and as a former equestrian particularly supports charities that benefit horses.
