best-ethical-handbags-fall-2017For Fall & Beyond

Handbags are some of the primary investment pieces in my wardrobe. The work that goes into creating one is taxing and meticulous, often making them more expensive than other items I purchase. While I’m not the type to run out and buy a new bag each season, I am slowly collecting an assortment that serve me well and will last for years. Quality over quantity really rings true. One thing I have discovered as I have researched ethical handbag options is that fair production does not always cost as much as I would expect, and traditional manufacturing of designer bags is sometimes inflated.

If you are looking to add a classic bag to your wardrobe, I hope you find this post helpful.
