A vintage bag is usually a very unique or special bag, usually a treasured find, an object of beauty and art which will outlive even a highly-priced contemporary bag due to quality craftsmanship and handloom yarns. The term “vintage” itself is up for interpretation, as it could mean old, stately or simply exceptional. To really delve into the subject, let’s separate the words vintage from consignment and as such, as a reminder of the age-old techniques and methods that bags used to be made with. A vintage bag could be described as any bag whose construction or style seems to resemble or be at odds with the techniques and trends of today’s designer or handbag industry.
Today’s designer handbags are made with materials such as silk, synthetic leather, nylon and other man-made fibers. As a result, they are rather stiff, bulky and not always in good condition. Often, designer bags, which cost hundreds of dollars, are sold without their contents being included. Many vintage bag buyers prefer to buy a designer bag with its contents intact as they are able to restore them and provide their own unique touch. This is not possible for most people as it is not within the means of most buyers.
When it comes to purchasing a vintage handbag, one should take care as most vintage bags cannot be guaranteed to be 100% authentic as some sellers may claim. There are also many reproductions on the market today, so one should exercise caution when purchasing a second-hand bag. In this situation, it is important to consult with a specialist who would be able to advise on the authenticity of the product.
If one finds the need to purchase a vintage bag on the second-hand market, then finding a certified antique or vintage bag restorer would be the best option. An authentic restorer will be able to guarantee that his/her products are authentic because they have spent a great deal of time and effort in customizing the designs. The process of custom designing starts from the moment that the designer creates the sketch of the original product and includes it in the form of an original pattern or design. Once the sketch is complete, the designer sends it to a specialized artisans who creates the design based on the sketch.
Most chanel bags are inspired by past fashion trends and the details on the bags are designed to complement those fashion trends. As such, new bags with the same motif as a vintage bag would not exactly match and look out of place. Therefore, when choosing the new bag with the same motif as your old one, it is imperative to make sure that the new bags do not have a design or pattern which is too similar to your old one. If possible, it is recommended that you sell your old bag as quickly as possible since there are a large number of people who are looking for new bags all the time. In case you cannot sell your old bag quickly, then it would be better for you to go in for a certified vintage bag restorer to have your bag replicated so as to avoid any kind of loss of identity.
You can also use the services of a vintage bag designer to re-create your favorite designer bags. This is the perfect option if you are looking for the latest designs and patterns. To have your vintage bag reproduced, the designer first analyses the design and the quality of the fabric which is used to make the vintage bag. A good designer would be able to get the desired effect on your bag without losing the original charm or beauty. The designer may also decide to add additional details like zippers and buttons to the bag depending on the needs of the buyer. With so many options available, it is easy to find a perfect vintage bag for your collection.
