Do you remember the first time you saw that gorgeous handbag? The vibrant colour, the silky texture, the envious stares from your friends? How powerful you felt when you stepped into that meeting with it slung over your shoulder?
Admit it, your bags have been there for you. Through earlier mornings, long nights, forgetful and stressful moments, they’ve held your hand.
But have you been there for your bags? More importantly, have you been showing them, love?
My bags are my babies however, I’m guilty of not showing them enough love. While I treat them with care when I wear them out, they’re usually tossed in a corner, on the chair or stuffed in some box because of the limited space.
Seven out of ten times, they get creases and twists that ruin their beauty. I was tempted to slow down my love affair until I found out about the handbag hanger.
WHAT IS THE HANDBAG HANGER?
The answer is simple….it’s where your bags belong when you’re not wearing them. HBH is an Austrailian company founded by the talented, chief lover of bags, Michelle Zillman.
You would have read her guest post about the hottest handbag trends and the hanger last month.
Personally, I think the handbag hanger is an ingenious idea.
- Saves space
- Makes my room or closet look more organized- I no longer have a big box cluttering my closet and ruining my shoes.
- Portability- It can be moved from one place to the next, wherever you feel comfortable.
- It’s made out of strong steel that doesn’t bend or rust, so it’s guaranteed to last.
- My handbags never looked happier
- It’s not just for bags! Scarfs, jewellery…you name it.
If our dresses, t-shirts and shoes have their own storage method, why not our bags?
ALL OF YOUR BAGS TAKEN CARE OF
The hanger comes in 2 sizes; Petite and Grande. The Petite holds 2 bags and can carry up to 231 pounds roughly. The Grande holds up to 12 bags and carries up to 110 pounds roughly. With the heaviest bag weighing 16 pounds.
There are four collections to choose from named after the world’s 4 major fashion centres: New York, London, Milan and Paris.These collections are based on the number and types of bags that the designers think typically owned.
Of course, if you desire more space you can always, order several collections based on your needs.
I received the Paris model which included a Grande hanger, a Petite hanger and fourteen (14) spongy strap supports.
Assembling the hanger was easy, I just had to push the straps onto the hanger. It was a bit tight in getting the straps on but with a little force, it was on.
The Petite hanger is the perfect accessory for a lunch or dinner out. If you have no available space to place your bag in the restaurant, you can hook the hanger to your chair and store your bag and/or scarf.
