Advantages & Disadvantages of a Velvet Bag
I LOVE a good velvet bag, they are soft, tactile and look uber luxe! There are many advantages and disadvantages though to buying a velvet bag, so today I want to touch on a few of them. First of all, velvet bags are vegan and generally cruelty free, I say generally, as sometimes velvet contains silk, which is of course, made by silk worms and not vegan. They also tend to be cheaper than leather bags, so if you prefer the look of velvet bags, you might find it’s also a little more purse friendly. However, velvet bags tend to have a shorter life span, so if you are buying more of an investment bag, like the Gucci bag in velvet, please be aware it might damage quicker than you expect, so you might want to re-think this. However, if you are wanting to buy more of a trend or fashion bag for the next few seasons or special occasions, then you might be happy with a velvet bag. Also, if you live in a rainy climate, you might want to think about if you could go for a velvet bag, as it might spoil faster than a leather bag and in this case, you might want to consider more of a treated, grainy leather bag rather than a super soft lambskin, as some lambskin bags can wear badly in the rain and become ‘speckled’. Finally, leather is a very ‘all seasons’ material for a bag, where as velvet is much more suited to winter bags. So please think of the style of the bag and if you are planning on using it in Autumn to Spring, or if you want to use it in high summer too, as velvet is not idea for summer months. I would also be very nervous of spilling ice cream or suncream on a velvet bag, as they are harder to clean.
