Let it cross your body, carry it in your hand or leave it on your shoulder.

♦ Velvet handbags

Are you looking for the hottest material that is presented for the next year? There are several materials that are usually used for making handbags. Leather is the most common material, but it is not the only one to be used for making handbags for women. Velvet is the hottest material you are going to find in the next year. It is soft and provides you with the luxury look you need. Velvet is not only used for making handbags. You are going to find it in the coming year on shoes and different pieces of clothing women wear as well.
