On bag handle wraps and mom outdates!

I received a couple of bag handle wraps a couple of weeks ago from Oh my Bag Ph.  A lot of mom fashionistas are going to cringe when they read this, but yeah, I wasn’t sure what they were for. That’s just how outdated I am when it comes to fashion accessories and all things in between, haha!

First things first, I checked my bags and found that none of the bags I have left have any use for the bag handle wraps. I mean, I’ve got a Nine West backpack that needs some serious dry cleaning, but that’s about it.

If you remember, when we shifted to Tiny Living last December, I only took with me the bare necessities and either threw out or gave away the stuff that I felt I wouldn’t be using often anyway.

I’m not really a bag lady, but I’ve got friends who are practically experts at this. In fact, one of my chums designs and supplies for some of the most popular brands in the Philippines. She’s my go-to person when it comes to bags and shoes because she lives and breathes fashion, you know what I mean?

So what I did was find friends who can make good use of the handle wraps and asked them all about it. I learned some new things, too!

For example, aside from giving your bag a new, trendsetting look, handle wraps are actually created to help you care for your bags, especially if you’ve invested on something a bit more pricey than the ones you find in regular department stores.

The handle wraps can protect the leather on the handle from being overly handled. Normally, the material on the handles of our bags are the ones that are first to crack and peel, but the handle wraps keep the leather out of contact from stuff that weaken the material. That’s according to my mom blogger friend, Janice of therollercoasterride.com.

My mom friend who owns the Kate Spade bag above also pointed out that it protects the bag from messy hands, especially when you’re a mom and you’ve got kids who seem to get gooey stuff on them all the time.

Doesn’t this #handlewrap by @ohmybagphils sass up this bag? #bagaccessories #bagcare #bags

And also, if you don’t have nannies following you around and you need to make your kids hold your bag for a while, at least the handle is safe from the chocolate or chips residue that got on their hands just a few minutes ago.

I don’t know about you but that just convinces me about these beautiful things. Of course I gave the handle wraps to my friends who rock them, but I’m definitely going to consider getting myself some when I get myself a new bag to embellish soon.

  1. I received one of these handle wraps from a friend a few weeks back but I never really got to using it. I visited the Oh My Bag website and I have bookmarked it. They’ve got some pretty neat stuff there. Thanks for sharing.

    1. Not all, though. I’m one of those who would rather have everything fit in my pocket or something haha.

  2. Cool bag handle wraps! I’ve seen these all over my Instagram feeds the past months, they are stylish indeed. Maybe I should get myself one or two. 🙂

  3. I’ve seen people use their scarves to decorate their bag and spice it up with a stylish handkerchief as an accessory. Haven’t thought of using bad handle wraps… maybe I’ll try it haha.

  4. Oooh there’s my special mention. Haha! 🙂 Once I get my “nice” bags cleaned I’ll definitely get some of those bag handle wraps. I need to take better care of my bags.

  5. MIL used to love giving me bags but the bags all end up in very poor condition. I think it comes with being a mom of young kids. Or I just need to take care of my bags more. haha! This will be a good way to do it.

  6. I don’t know if I really need something like this. Just holding on the bag handle is good enough for me. This may help for very heavy luggage though.

    1. Hahaha, Fred! Yes, this is definitely more for ladies. But I like the practicality of putting something on the handle for heavy luggages. Those can get painful to the hands.

  7. I’ve been looking for bag handle wraps for a long time now, so this one is so perfect! I’d love to get a few for my mom this Mother’s Day, they would sooo good with her designer bags 🙂

    1. yes, I think these things are primarily created for designer bags. they’re not easy to let go of, so better to go extra mile in taking care of them.

  8. I had no idea they were called handle wraps, I’m pretty amused with these trinkets, I think they make bags look prettier. I don’t really mind what my bag looks like most of the time, but it’s good to know things like this. Thank you.

  9. im definitely not a wrap the strap person myself, i prefer a simple/clean look but i can see the point of this esp for expensive bags that dont look good with a patina on its leather handles.

  10. This a cool style for the ladies to flaunt their bag with a cheeky look. An “ankara” fabric can even be used to create a stylish touch on the handle wraps.
