Styles to match every taste, handmade leather bags are as varied as personalities. Consisting of unique creations and old standby favorites you are sure to find one to match all of your moods and outfits. Bags that define your uniqueness are often not ravaged by the change of fashion seasons, they are timeless. In the world of fashion what is more important to you the consumer, following the trends or having a favorite leather bag that weathers all the fashion storms?
leather bags are described by most as being completely handmade from
the cutting of the leather to the sewing and finally the finished
product. Top full-grain leather is soft, supple and long-lasting, while
its cousin suede contains none of the outer full-grain leather so it
maintains a level of softness that full-grain leather cannot. While
suede is beautiful and soft it is very susceptible to staining, so care
must be taken to avoid stains, as it is not washable.
include shoulder bags that utilize shorter handles to allow the bag to
sit on your shoulder, pouch bags that hang off the hip, messenger bags
that include a long handle to go over the shoulder and hang down to the
hip, and flap bags that have the shorter handles of a shoulder bag and
have a flap for entry into the bag. The colors of leather are also as
varied as the styles of construction, leather can be dyed to match
nearly every color of the rainbow and then some.
Most women do not
consider what type of bag would fit their body type, the majority look
for what matches their outfit or personality. The shape of your bag is
just as important as its color and construction quality. The rule of
thumb relies on the bag being the opposite shape of your body. For those
tall and thin body types a rounded bag would be flattering, while those
who are more round would be best to consider a bag that is square or
rectangular in shape. For those who might be lacking in height a bag
that tricks the eye by adding length would be appropriate.
conclusion a homemade hand bag is very fun to make and you will like
what you have done afterwords. It is a lot better than spending two to
five hundred dollars on one that you might not like and that might fall
apart later. Remember you can make the hand bag or someone else can do
it for you either way you come out cheaper.
