Versatility With Leather Handbags

01/08/2021 | Mohsin Hasan

Handbags are so well immersed in our social fabric that their existence is almost taken for granted. After all, they are a convenient source of carrying your belongings for everyday use and come in all shapes, colors and sizes. Of course, all sorts of different bag categories (Duffle, briefcase etc.) have a hand carrier most often and can be termed as handbag in the literal sense but you know well what a handbag refers to in popular culture.

The Origins

Searching the roots is a human passion which makes one wonder, where these commonly used carriers of personal items originated from. Initially, the concept for a bag that can carry someone`s particulars was restricted to carrying coins or currency only. The drawstring pouches from ancient Arab world used for handling gold, silver and bronze dirhams come to mind. Similarly, Europeans till the renaissance came, were using something similar for handling coins as well. However, since the advent of industrialization and with fast paced growth in travel technology, this bare essential of human daily routine has changed shape and size with versatility.

The `What To Consider` of Leather Handbags & Our Motivation Behind Handbag Category

The handbag category is filled with excess and luxury. You get another design every other day. Often, handbags are used as a symbol of luxury. Women love to have a handbag in their closet that adorns the logo of a big brand. Just that powerful feeling you know.

As leather and handbags go hand in glove, we were always interested to work with designs that are functional and smart, while being stylish all along.

Let`s look at some points that we think should always be considered while making your next buying decision with leather handbags.

Your Purpose With Handbag

Handbags are being used for a variety of purposes and in all sorts of different scenarios. Narrow down your focus to identify the kind of situations you are going to use your leather handbag in. Many aesthetically pleasing handbags are not functional enough and become a headache, hence being discarded. Similarly, a ladies leather workbag can be functional but not attractive in any way making you look and feel dour. You may want a leather handbag that’s a trendy fit for just your usual casual hangouts rather than buying a big tote bag that just doesn’t suit you afterwards. Buy leather handbags for situations and environments and not on first look only.

Choose The Size

With a range of different sizes out there, you can get lost in the puzzle going through the variety available online or in a brick and mortar store. One key guide to making an informed decision is keeping your appearance and size in mind while trying to match your choice with that. Check the specs and measurements if you`re buying online and imagine how the handbag size is going to look with you. Something too mini or small might appear to be an odd contrast or something too big while you`re not huge or very tall can be similarly odd as well.

Minimalist, Elegant or Fashionable Handbags

With leather handbags you have an inclination for all things at one time yet something unique. Let`s admit, they can be a hard choice to make. Choosing on anyone of the above pointers can depend on a variety of different factors. Don’t go for extremely fashionable, shouting out loud handbags if you have moved on in terms of age. An elegant black leather tote is often an all season investment for a manageable yet stylish appearance in different environments. However, if you often move lite, a small leather handbag or a small crossbody purse is a safe bet for just your bare minimums. With all this in mind, no one can in anyway undermine the appeal of a lively, all purpose rivet handbag that has a refreshing color to go with organizing options other than just the main compartment. Such bags are a good option in almost any environment.
