When it comes to bag trends, sometimes bigger is just better. That’s the case with oversized bags, which have been taking over the fashion scene this fall. Whether you’re looking for an everyday handbag or a stylish statement piece, this trend can fit your every need.
The latest oversized bag from Bottega Veneta features a sleek design with large top handles and a drawstring closure. The bag also has a flat bottom that provides additional stability. It’s the perfect accessory for anyone who loves to carry a lot of stuff!
It’s hard to know when a bag trend will hit the mainstream, but it often takes a few seasons for it to gain traction. Regardless of how much a designer pushes it, however, the decision to adopt a new silhouette ultimately lies in our hands.
Thankfully, there are many designers who are embracing the big bag trend and bringing it back to style. From high-end brands to more affordable labels, everyone is getting in on the action!
But what exactly is a big bag? A big bag, or FIBC, is a flexible intermediate bulk container. They were first introduced in the 1940s, and have become a staple in the world of industrial packaging due to their versatility, strength, lower handling and transportation costs.
They can be filled from the top and unloaded from the bottom, making them ideal for bulk goods such as sand, gravel, grain and waste. They’re commonly made of woven PP plastic and have loops at the top that can be used to lift them.
During transport, the bag can shift and change shape, which makes proper securing essential. This can be done using a number of different methods, but securing by means of form-fitting is considered to be the best option. However, this method is only effective when certain conditions are met, including the bag being in its correct shape, a rigid outer frame and adequate filling.
The newest bulk bags from Elebia have been designed with all of this in mind and are now available in standard 90 x 90 x 100 cm sizes or can be customized to meet your specific needs. Their improved design also allows for 2 big bags to be loaded simultaneously, which greatly increases handling productivity rates.
As a bonus, FIBCs can be printed, which is great for marketing purposes or to provide information about the product inside. This can help reduce disposal/incineration costs and build customer loyalty. Additionally, when a big bag reaches the end of its reusable life cycle, it can be recycled into a new FIBC.
If you’re a mini bag lover, warming up to this trend may be difficult, but it’s important to remember that it’s not about what you wear but how you wear it. Ultimately, the choice is up to you – and who knows, if we continue to embrace this silhouette, it may just stay around for the long haul.
