How to Distinguish A Real HandBag?

Bag Shops Sydney

The bags we buy in Australia are genuine, legitimate items. This means that they were designed and manufactured by the company that is on the bag’s label. Occasionally in this country, and more often in less wealthy countries, we might find fake bags. These are cheap copies of designer bags – counterfeits. They purport to be a brand label, but they are actually manufactured by anonymous companies and merely cheap facsimiles of the original. Often they are of lower quality. And they never pay royalties to the brand that they copy.

The laws regarding counterfeit handbags and similar fake items vary between countries, but it is usually illegal to see these items. Sometimes we are allowed to bring one or two of these fake items into the country, as gifts or for personal use, when bought overseas. But selling them for profit is quite out of the question. In some countries it is illegal to buy a counterfeit bag or bring it through airport customs, and fines are applied.

How do we tell a counterfeit handbag for a genuine item?

  • If it looks cheap it is a fake.
  • The logo might not quite look the same as the original.
  • Logos might be stamped on, rather than be an integrated part of the bag.
  • Peel-away labels or part of the bag are a giveaway.
  • Many designed bags have double stitching. Fakes often have single stitching.
  • Is the stitching fine? (10 stitches per inch). This is a good sign. Fakes have fewer stitches.
  • Do the zippers or metal parts tarnish quickly. Then it is probably fake.
  • Does the bag lose its shape quickly. This is a sign of cheap manufacture.
  • The inner lining should be neat and tight. If the lining looks poor then the bag is quite probably fake.


Some handbags are knockoffs rather than counterfeits. This means they are similar, even identical, in design to a brand label, but do not mislabel the item as genuine. They have their own brand name, and do not put a false brand label on the item. These are quite legal, though the quality varies from poor to acceptable.

Counterfeit and knockoff bags are rarely worth the money we might pay for them. The genuine article bought from a reputable store is a far better purchase. One genuine article handbag is worth more than many fakes.

Caring for Leather Bags

Rugged Hide Bags

Leather bags have a natural look and feel. This is a mark of authenticity, and a factor that makes leather and other organic products superior to cheap imitation materials.

Leather will have irregularities, imperfections, creases, and colour differences. This is part of the aesthetic, reminding us that the product has been crafted from organic material. Over time these imperfections will increase, as the item suffers some wear and tear. This to is part of the product’s appeal. At the same time we want to keep our leather products in the best condition possible.

Handbags – Rugged Hide Bags

– Use high quality leather polishing and cleaning products. Spot check the products to ensure that they do not harm the finish.

– Use a microfibre cloth to wipe down the leather. Make sure this cloth is extremely clean, as even the tiniest amount of grit on the surface can cause scratching.

– Avoid Vigorous rubbing. Do not use solvent or soap, only leather products.

– Avoid exposing the leather to direct Sunlight – this will cause fading. Obviously we must carry the bags with us during at least some of the day. But avoid leaving leather bags in a car seat where they are exposed to the Sun, and temptation from thieves.

– Avoid heat and moisture. This can cause wrinkeling of the leather. If leather gets wet it will get stuck in that shape as it dries.

– Oil and grease will stain leather, as the material is permeable. This is a big issue with handbags as we often carry makeup, sunscreen and other body products. Keep the handbag away when using these items. If grease or oil does get on the leather, it needs to be cleaned immediatly.

– Be minimal with the bag. If we stretch the bag by putting too much inside we will ruin its shape.

– Let the bag breath. Do not wrap it in plastic. Store it in a clean, dry place. Moisture absorbers in and around the bag can help.

– Never leave the bag on the ground. This will quicky get the leather dirt. Put the bag on a hook, on a chair, or in your lap.

– Naked, unsealed leather is more prone to stains and damage than sealed leather. So the precautions are even more strict.

– When a leather handbag is new the surface colour may rub off on surrounding items. This can be a nightmare if a new leather bag rubs against white clothing, and leaves a mark. So when a bag is new it should only be used with dark clothing. Polishing with a microfibre cloth will remove some ‘loose’ surface colour.

Rugged Hide Bags

Genuine leather feels and looks organic. Find the right leather handbag to suit your sense of style.

Luggage and Bags After Lockdown

Travel Bags Online Shopping

While we presently still have severe restrictions on travel this situation will eventually change. The govenment 5 stage plan aims to have 80% of the population vaccinated by January 2022, perhaps sooner. By this stage travel restrictions should relax. But of course we will still be taking precaution against illness.

Hygiene – Luggage and Bag Shops Sydney

Almost everybody now practices personal hygiene – masks and sanitiser and social distancing. It helps if we have ready access to these hygiene items, masks, disposable gloves, sanitiser, antibacterial wipes …etc. Bags with a compartment for Covid-19 hygiene products make for a more convenient situation. The equipment is always in easy reach it we have the bag.

Airports, planes and any travel terminal are fairly high risk environments. It is all too easy for germs to spread. A dedicated pocket on luggage for hygiene equipment helps us stay safe.

Hardcase luggage is more popular these days. These more rugged cases have been show to last longer, partly because of their durability, partly because they stack quite easily, partly because baggage handlers find them easier to use.

Hardcases are also preferable during the pandemic, because their surface can be cleaned with antibacterial wipes. Soft material cases tend to absorb liquids, so they are harder to disinfect.

Handbags that are made of leather or similar material can be wiped down with antibacterial products. Some other handbags, like cloth material, will absorb liquids, and are harder to disinfect.

Airport Luggage that Lasts

Popular Bags Australia

It is truly a dreadful start for a vacation to arrive and find that your luggage has been damaged. Its also pretty bad to see luggage deteriorate over the course of several trips. But we feel frustrated and powerless to stop it because the damage occurred after it was checked in at the airport.

But we can greatly reduce the chance of damaged luggage by choosing the type of luggage that is less likely to be mishandled. And simply be choosing luggage that is more robust.

It seems that bags with wheels do better with airport baggage handlers. The wheels simply make is easier for the airport staff who have to constantly move the heavy bags. Wheeled luggage can be pushed rather than carried; it is also less likely to be thrown on a stack. This means less wear and tear.

Obviously a strongly built, robust case is going to last much better than a flimsy case, especially if it is heavily loaded.

If you get a 4 wheeled hard case that can be easily stacked with other cases then you do far better by the baggage handlers than a soft heavy case that ends up being thrown around.

If you travel on a regular basis, or even just once per year, then its worth investing in some good quality cases that will last the distance. Look for luggage that has wheel, that is robust, reasonably light and easy to stack. Something that is easy to identify makes it easier when collecting your luggage.

Some Christmas Ideas

Some Christmas Ideas

There are always a few people we struggle to buy present for. Practical gifts are always a possibility. Fashion items are good too, if they suit the person we are giving to.

Wash Bags
Just the neat little bag for holding toothbrushes and shavers. We have many styles, including vegan friendly types.

Immersion Heater
This can be used to heat a cup of water to make tea and coffee, or just to purify the water.

Travel Pillows
Most travelers will spend some time sleeping on a plane or coach. The neck pillow makes some shuteye much easier. There are kids pillows with cartoon characters.

Travel Wallet
The improved version of the regular wallet, with extra compartments for cards, tickets and hopefully all the small items we need to keep on us while travelling.

Squeezy bottles
We can only take a small amount of liquid on a plane. To comply with these airline rules we can use a few small plastic bottles to hold shampoo and other items.

Digital scale
Make the airline weight limit easy to know. No guessing, just weigh the bag before you leave the house.

Money Belt
Keep the passport and other travel documents safe.

Carry Closet
Great for carrying a formal or business suit, and it also works for some elegant dresses.

Power Adapters
So many different countries have different power plugs and voltage settings. A good power adapter will adjust the voltage and not just the plug. This is great for charging USB devices.

RFID wallets and holders

The RFID technology prevents credit cards from being scanned, so it protects your personal information.

Few people complain of too many handbags. But buy to suit the taste of the recipient.

Some Trends for Bags in 2020

Some Trends for 2020

Attempts to predict the long term future of fashion often seem comical in hindsight. But fashion conscious people always find the present trends to be interesting. Here’s a few trends that we see as 2019 morphs into 2020.

The Sling Out

We always said that the strap was the underappreciated part of any handbag. For one thing it needed to be just the right length to sit right on the shoulder. But this has changed form with the sling strap.

The bag with the sling goes diagonally across the shoulders, holding the bag at the hip. This new design element is in many bags of many styles, from neat conservative leather to colourful and bizarre bag designs.

Big Buckles

The big ‘in your face’ buckle has become popular, as has the moderate buckle than neatly fits in with the bag design. This is very different to the older subtle clips that previously held the bag closed.

Some big buckles are fashion ornaments only, they perform no practical function.

Mini Bag

Tiny bags have been around for a few years; almost a purse on a strap. This year they are getting even smaller. Not always practical, but damn cute.

Oversized Tote

In contrast to the mini bag is the big tote bag. This has plenty of storage space, but not the separate compartments of may other bags.

Totes are available in anything from sleek leather to open weave designs. Simple, yet effective if combined with the right outfit.

Draw String Bags

A bucket bag – loose with a drawstring top. This is another design element that can be used for anything from crochet to suede leather.

Trends come and go, but there are always a few fashion bags that suit your sense of style. Check our online range.
