We use handbag almost every day. However, how to choose a durable and beautiful bag?
Avoid the fakes
If you want a truly top-quality handbag, please keep way from the fakes. Top of the line designer brands use real leather or high-end faux leather, durable stitching, tabs that hold on straps and handles, and quality fabric inside and out to make purses. Purse’s hardware, solid, is made for each purse design.
Real leather Vs. faux leather
Products made of genuine leather are very strong and durable. Since high quality leather is often expensive, some famous designers start using fake leather. Faux stuff can look and feel impressively real and is easy to clean, however they have a short lifetime.
However, whether you choose real or faux, you should choose a bag which has thick — preferably double — stitching. Besides, keep the bling on your bag to a minimum.
Clasps and Zippers
As we know, most bags have some hardware. For instance, bag’s zips offer the best way to protect your valuables, and zipper should be thick and not flimsy. It is recommended to look for durable clasps and connectors that twist and move to make the bag function at its best.
Look for designer outlets or fashion discount stores if you can’t afford this season’s new designs from a top brand’s shop or the department store. Many midrange designers also sell high quality and unique bags with a focus on moderate pricing.
Of course, the best way to choose a handbag is to be present. If you have to shop online, you should go to a reputable site that has many photos including close-ups of someone carrying the bag, and carefully check them.
