Among accessories, handbags are one of the most popular fashion accessories. When you select a handbag, usually the bag style is the most important feature. Something else? The bag color. They are the browse features when you choose a bag. If you are looking for a perfect handbag, you should also take all handbag parts into consideration. Most bags are made of eight parts including surface fabric, lining, strap, hardware, thread, glue, zipper, and button. Each part has different quality specification.

Handbag Surface

The bag surface likes a person's face. When you find your favorite style, you should take a look at the handbag surface first. A good quality bag should have a level and smooth surface. There are no unnecessary seams except from the design. The surface should have an even color without bubbles and exposed leather edges.

Handbag Lining

Most linings are textile or man-made materials. No matter which material, the color should coordinate with the handbag surface. The lining has more seams so stitches should be compact without much loose.

Handbag Strap

This is one of the most important components, especially for a certain handbag style, such as cross body handbags. You should pay more attention to this part because it is a fragile part in the handbag. When you purchase the handbags, check bag strap itself and see if there is a crack and stitches are good or not. Also, check if the joint between handbag body and strap is strong enough.

Handbag Hardware

As the fashion decoration for handbags, the bag hardware plays a big role for the whole handbag. So pay attention to the hardware design, shape, and workmanship when you are shopping a handbag, especially if the hard ware has a golden color.

Handbag Stitch

No matter surface threads or hidden threads, the length of stitches should be even without any thread residues. In fact, the stitch length is part of the handbag design for handbag designers.

Handbag Glue

Maybe you don't realize the role of glue in the handbags. However, you could see it everywhere, such as the adhesion of surface and lining, the binding of strap and handbag body, and the binding of different parts. How to check this part? Just drag those parts and check if they are glued well or not.

Handbag Zipper

Zippers have both decoration and closure function for handbags. If you get a broken zipper handbag, it is really headache. On the one hand, bags become unsafe to use. On the other hand, the replacement of zippers is time consuming and the final result could affect the handbag artistic. So make sure that you check the zippers during shopping.


Even buttons are a minor part in the bags. However, a loose button can totally ruin your bag image so spend a bit time to check buttons.
