HANDBAG FABRICS & MATERIALS TO KNOW

LEATHER LEATHER

LEATHER

Versatility? Check. Durability? Check. Style? Definitely check. Mainstays in any bag collection, leather handbags come in a wide range of styles, whether relaxed or structured, oversized or mini, classic or oh-so-trendy. Smooth leather in neutral tones offers an easily transition from day to night, while saffiano leather bags and pebble leather bags add extra texture.

SUEDE SUEDE

SUEDE

Love luxe? Suede handbags are made with a type of napped leather, but have a super-soft texture and are not as durable as traditional leather. It’s a good idea to use a suede protector spray to keep your bag clean and looking newer for longer.

FAUX LEATHER and PVC FAUX LEATHER and PVC

FAUX LEATHER & PVC

Big style without breaking the bank. Faux-leather handbags and PVC handbags are made with alternative materials creating the look of soft or patent leather—great for trying out the latest trends without making the investment or commitment. They’re also perfect for those in search of cruelty-free options or budget-conscious options.

CANVAS, COATED CANVAS and FABRIC CANVAS, COATED CANVAS and FABRIC

CANVAS, COATED CANVAS & FABRIC

Give your look a casual touch. Usually made of heavyweight cotton, canvas handbags are great carryalls for everything you need. Check out stylish and spacious totes and weekenders in lots of colors, patterns, graphic prints and more—don’t forget coated canvas bags, too! Another bonus? Fabric handbags are lightweight (compared to leather) for everyday use.

STRAW and CROCHET STRAW and CROCHET

STRAW & CROCHET

Warm weather calls for easy breezy accessories—and we love charming straw handbags and crochet handbags. You can find these woven styles in lighter tones to perfectly complement summer outfits. Beach bound? A raffia tote will hold your towel, sunscreen and extra clothes. Date night? A cute straw clutch completes your look.

NYLON NYLON

NYLON

The strong stylish type. Casual and durable, nylon bags are made of a synthetic material that’s water-resistant and long-lasting. Available in a wide variety of colors and sizes, this type of material can live up to everyday wear and tear without sacrificing style.
