When Should You Replace a Handbag?

When Should You Replace a Handbag?

2 minute read

With a cherished handbag, it can be hard to say goodbye. It can be tempting to overlook the little things — a sticky zipper here, some loose stitching there — to keep our beloved beauties in rotation as long as possible. But it begs the question, when is it time to retire an old handbag? 


Here are a few telltale signs that it’s time to start looking for something new. 

The exterior fabric is noticeably in disrepair

Fraying, tears, folds, creases, and cracks are all signs that your handbag has reached the end of its life cycle and needs replacing. You want your handbag to draw attention for its style and sophistication, not for its loose threads or faded fabric. 

The lining is in a sorry state 

When your items start slipping through the holes in your handbag’s lining, becoming lost to its inner recesses, then it’s definitely time for an upgrade. Start fresh with a new handbag and protect its lining from the get-go with a felt insert organiser that reduces the need for rummaging and its accompanying wear and tear. 

When you’re ready for a breath of fresh air 

If you’ve been carrying your handbag for a while and it’s just not inspiring the rush of pleasure it once did, it’s time to switch things up! There’s really no better reason to replace a handbag than a desire to freshen up your style with a brand new accessory that looks great and brings joy.
