It's not as simple as look, grab, buy.

When it comes to buying a new handbag, it’s easy to find one you like the look of, tap your card and take it home. In this post we’re breaking down why you should spend a little more time researching and evaluating what the best bag will be for you - looks aside. This is essential to make sure you are maximising your hard earned cash, as well as the time it takes to find the perfect bag for your needs.


Some of the things to look for when choosing a handbag are:


  • Style (of course)
  • Personality
  • Price
  • Functionality
  • Materials


A lot of people think they need a new handbag every season, but that's not always the case.

You should really take time to consider all variables of your purchase before investing your money.

- Is elegance more critical than durability?

- Is price more critical than high-quality leathers and materials?

- Will it be an everyday accessory, or does it need to be more durable to help carry your laptop, make up or phone around all day?

These 2 tips should assist you in determining which handbag is ideal for you!

Set a budget.

My first piece of advice on how to find the perfect handbag for you is knowing your budget. I know we’re not talking about buying a car or house, but it’s always important to set a budget to maximise your savings and to keep away from those impulsive, expensive buys.

An excellent way to do this is by asking yourself questions like,

"How long do I expect to keep and use this bag for?"

"Based on that, what would I consider a reasonable price for that bag?"

Now you’ve been able to identify an approximate budget for your new purchase!

We’ve designed our collection of Kahn Barnes premium leather bags to offer timeless style with premium full-grain leather construction at an affordable price point. We designed all our products with you, the customer in mind, so that we can tick all the boxes when it comes to purchasing a new bag, clutch, wallet or watch.

Look for quality materials & craftsmanship (within your budget).

90% of people will opt for a specific brand, style or look, without properly considering the materials being used. When it comes to a handbag, you need something that will take care of you and your belongings for years to come, not months or even worse, days.

Unfortunately for most people, finding an affordable, yet high quality handbag that uses full-grain leathers as a pose to PU or Bonded leathers, can be really difficult. We identified that this was a common issue for many, and is part of why Kahn Barnes was born… To assist people in finding timeless, premium leather products that don’t have the premium price tag attached.
