Circular Fashion at Bag Religion: Why we care
At Bag Religion, we believe in working towards a more sustainable future by keeping the wheels of the circular fashion economy perpetually spinning. Designer handbags are designed for longevity, to be passed down from generation to generation. As a team of bag-obsessed individuals, we seek to facilitate this process of finding a loving new home for these beautiful, timeless, and classic bags with fellow bag lovers – those who truly appreciate the value of these well-made investment pieces.
What is Circular Fashion?
Circular fashion is a concept that challenges fashion’s linear production line. In the luxury sector, circular fashion includes the expert craftsmanship of items in high-quality materials and the swapping, repairing, or reselling of these items so that they would have new users throughout its life cycle.
With every rare designer bag that we source and deliver to our #BagReligionConverts, each item gets a new beginning, passing from one trendsetter to the next. And so, the cycle continues...
High quality luxury handbags are made with care and built to last a lifetime. When we shop luxury consignment, we contribute to circular fashion by buying less of the new items, reducing the volumes of raw material required in production. Eventually, we hope that more areas of the industry will begin to scale back production levels due to decreasing demand, less land, water, energy and oil will be utilized as well.
Benefits of Circular Fashion
Our team here at Bag Religion believes in shopping consciously and making meaningful purchases – high quality designer handbags to develop relationships with and stand the test of time. When we shop secondhand, we’re exposed to an entire arsenal of unique handbags, each with their own story to tell.
When we join the circular economy, we make more deliberate choices in the way that we shop, and this in turn improves our relationship with our material possessions so that they can reveal something more intimate and sentimental about ourselves to the world.
Join the Circular Fashion Economy
As brands like Chanel and Hermes continue to introduce periodical price increases on their handbags and accessories, it also makes good sense to purchase from the luxury resale market and save some money in the process.
Whether you choose to consign, sell or purchase a designer handbag from Bag Religion or any other luxury consignment store, you’ll still be doing your part in contributing to the circular fashion economy. Join us as we work towards a future that's kinder on our planet by making sustainable and sound purchases.
