A Brief History of Luxury Bags
Bags have been a necessary accessory for centuries. Ancient Egyptian hieroglyphs depict men wearing purses around their waists and in the Middle Ages, girdle pouches were a symbol of status. But it was the development of the railroad that inspired bags as we know them today. People travelling long distances needed handheld luggage. This marked the beginning of some of the most famous handbag designers such as, Thierry Hermes, and Louis Vuitton.
Today, bags come in a vast amount of sizes and shapes. The range of choices can be overwhelming, so here is a brief overview of the differences between types of bags, so that you can find the perfect one for you. Luxury Bags are also the perfect gift if you are looking to buy someone something special.
Leather Tote Bags
Tote Bags are roomy handbags with handles that are often large enough to go over the shoulder. Tote bags are completely practical, made to carry lots of items, so they are the perfect companion for work, gym, shopping, a day at the beach, or as a carry-on bag when flying. They often have a completely open interior with internal compartments for items such as mobile phone, purse, and keys. Our Leather Tote Bag with Rose Pattern is the perfect all round bag.
Leather Bucket Bags
With long straps that go over the shoulder and enough space to hold daily necessities, Leather Bucket Bags are often the go-to handbag for everyday wear. They come in a wide range of styles, sizes and colours; a popular bucket bag is the Tan Leather Bucket Bag. It is the perfect size for storing your keys, lipstick, phone and money while the tan colour matches most outfits. Plus, nothing can compare to the quality of leather used for this beautiful bag.
Urban Safari Bags
Urban Safari bags are a convenient way to carry larger items and keep the hands free. They feature a long strap that goes over the shoulder, and the bag itself rests at the waist or hip. Larger Urban Safari Bags are a great choice for travelling, while medium and smaller sizes work well for casual daytime outings.
Weekend bags are a staple in every man and woman’s arsenal. They have shorter handles for carrying by hand. They tend to be medium-large-sized, perfect for weekend trips. Some weekend bags like our Luxury Leather Holdall have a strap that can be worn over the shoulder making it easier to carry. Leather weekend bags have a classic look that makes them a versatile and enduring part of a collection. As far as bags and getting your money’s worth goes, a weekend bag is a great investment.
