In the last few years, we have noticed a rising trend in Crossbody Bags. These bags have a long strap that hang on one shoulder and the strap goes across your body. These styles are secure, functional and have become quite fashionable. As editor-in-chief of Allure Magazine, Linda Wells has also noticed the trend:
“The idea of not having to carry an old-fashioned ladylike handbag in your hand by the handles is really appealing. People want more function in their fashion and not just frivolity. They want fashion to perform a basic service.” Courtesy ABC News.
Gone are the days of bulky, heavy nylon bags that look like they are meant for a burly bike messenger rather than a lovely lady. At Elemental Threads, we have developed a line of fashionable bags that convert from purse-style to cross-body so you have more options on how to wear your bag. And, because it’s an eThreads bag, you can design it yourself! Choose between our Zippy Purse, Small Pleated Tote and Large Pleated Tote. Then choose the fabrics, zipper, lining and hardware that best complement your wardrobe. Form and function – how often does that happen in women’s fashion?
