History sure has a way of repeating itself - and so do handmade bags.
When the industrial revolution came, we all knew it had come to stay. What we did not know was the extent to which it would immediately change (and continue to change as the years would roll by) every aspect of our lives. Prior to the last few decades, the American manufacturing industry most especially was all about the machine-made (otherwise called mass produced) products, from fashion products to electrical appliances and through to automobiles. In recent times however, people have interestingly begun to fall in love, all over again, with handmade stuff. While all the major industries of the world have experienced and still experience this cycle, the fashion industry is the most affected, particularly because of its dynamism. Of course, nobody is making or buying handmade bags that look like they were brought back into the century from five light years ago, which is why manufacturers in the modern fashion industry have mastered the art of remaking the typically old-fashioned handmade bags into modern sensations.
One major factor that has directly influenced the evolution of tastes in fashion is the fact that celebrities and ‘influencers’ across all spheres of human affairs seem to have also fallen in love with handmade bags and celebrity-based designer brands, encouraging brands like Armani and Chanel to produce such bags. Time and again, star singer Rihanna and the darling Oprah Winfrey have been seen with handmade bags. Below are two reasons you should consider getting one yourself:
- They are typically more durable than mass-produced bags as they are more meticulously created.
- They are exceptionally beautiful. If you have been looking for a way to make a fashion statement without going through much stress, handmade bags are your best bet.
