Handbags: Can you ever live without them? Since very long ago, women have used the handbag as a staple piece of clothing and has served both functional and aesthetic purposes. The first handbag was made for the wife of a wealthy entrepreneur who thought it sensible to provide her with a mini luggage bag so that she could keep personal belongings when they traveled. Bags existed before, but not necessarily in this form. Originally, coin bags or purses were used by both men and women for keeping money. Over time, these morphed into reticules and into handbags which come in various sizes, styles, colors, and prices. Africa is home to a large number of handbag designers who place sustainability and ethicality at the heart of their design process. Due to their efforts to make a positive impact upon their communities, these brands give back to them in ways you can’t imagine, so here are ten (10) African designer bags worth your while.
