Live your bird fashion dreams with a Pigeon designer clutch

Today is your day if you’ve ever looked at pigeons and thought, “I wish this was closer to me.” Now you can close a pigeon with this design pigeon pouch. It’s not quite a purse and not quite a bird. But if you open one wing, it reveals a small compartment that will hold a few personal items and may or may not fit your phone. It will also ensure that passers-by stare at you on the street. Neighborhood pigeons may even nod in your direction. If you ever wanted a pigeon to carry your messages, now is your chance. Without all the pesky training and cleaning. They’re currently sold out, but you can pre-order one for $890.
