The Ostrich effect
As well as all of those gorgeous reptilian inspired handbags you may have noticed I've been talking about (quite a lot) there's been a definite increase in ostrich and ostrich effect handbags this season, popping up at high end brands such as Mulberry, through to online retailers like BooHoo.com. Ostrich leather is incredibly soft and supple compared to calf or python - it's also worth more too, so prepare to pay extra if you're looking for a real ostrich skin bag. Despite the obvious downside for animal lovers, ostrich leather is incredibly useful for making handbags for a number of reasons:
No matter the shape, size or brand of handbag, ostrich leather remains sought after by fashionable women and designers alike - many handbag producers love working with the skin due to its soft and supple nature. If you can't quite stretch to the dizzy heights of an Ostrich Mulberry Bayswater (which will set you back a whopping £3,500) or if you just prefer your handbags animal free, then there are some great 'ostrich effect' styles on the high street at the moment too.
Elegant and refined, ostrich leather looks incredible any way you wear it, so grab yourself an accessory that's built to last a life time. Want to see more? Head over to OSOYOU and we'll do the searching for you!
