So, back in February I got invited to the Chanel factory to take a closer look at how their bags are made. For a material nerd like myself, it was literally amazing walking through the huge spaces filled with thousands of different fabrics in all shades of colours and prints! I mean, just the walls with shelfs carrying the colour cordinated zippers were enormous, and the button section..don’t get me started. For me it was like being Charlie in the chocolate factory.
It was such a great experience to see the love and effort put into making each bag , really. The staff was lovely, so very dedicated and passionated about every step along the way. Now, I know these bags aren’t exactly cheap but watching the process behind really made me think about what you are actually paying for. And, it’s a true modern classic.
