Designer handbags are considered as a luxury. Celebrated fashion houses bring out their own range of designer handbags and keep modifying and upgrading them every season. High profile fashion weeks witness models walking down the ramp to promote these bags. Celebrities flaunt the bags at important events only to add up to their craze. The designer handbags are definitely pricey and beyond the reach of the middle class. But have you ever considered the process of handbag manufacturing and the amount of labor given by each and every handbag manufacturer?
Manufacturing a handbag is not a one step process. First the design and material of the handbags are determined. A hand drawn sketch of the product is produced. The designer handbags generally use the finest quality materials which make them so costly. It is the quality of the material that determines the price of the handbag. A handbag manufacturer uses various materials to produce the handbags. The most popular material used in handbag manufacturing is leather. Leather is long lasting, durable and extremely classy. The leather used in these bags can be of different kinds of animal skins. The bags made from exotic and rare animal skins are the ones which are most pricey. Once the material and design is determined skilled leather cutters cut the leather perfectly which are stitched later on.
Apart from leather, suede and silk is also widely used in manufacturing handbags. Suede is quite durable and strong. But manufacturing suede bags is not a very easy thing to do. That is the reason that only few fashion labels have excelled in manufacturing good quality suede handbags. Every day materials are also incorporated in handbag manufacturing. You might often come across handbag models where precious gems and metals have been used. But of course these bags are more costly than the others.
So you can see how so many factors go into the making of handbags. A handbag manufacturer decides the price of the products based on all these factors. The material of the product used, the artisans used in creating the handbags and the costing of producing and facilitating the handbags all contribute to decide the price tag that a particular bag comes with. Last but not the least, the brand under which the bag is being manufactured, its reputation and popularity amongst the mass decides the price of the handbag.
