I got a press release for Emotybags a few weeks back, and I’ve been mulling over the product for a while. This company allows you to print your own image onto a leather bag. On one hand, this is a pretty cool idea. On the other hand, it is incredibly tacky. The quality looks quite good, and the prices are not scary, but I’m just not sure this is something I’m crazy about.
I love… the idea of printing a memorable picture onto the ‘trousse’ (the model above) as a present for Mother’s Day, your bridesmaids, or a fun birthday present. It would be great as a pencil case, makeup bag, or travel bag (for passports, currency, etc…) I also love the idea of printing something nice onto it for a young girl, but at €100 and up for a bag, this is out of range for most tweens.
I loathe… the idea of printing a photo of a cute dog on a handbag. And luxury brand logos should NEVER EVER be printed on a bag, unless that bag was bought from that luxury brand (and even then, monograms are often tacky.)
What do you all think? Maybe this could be better if they did full colour printing, not just a limited colour range.
