    Default Help needed for research on types of bags to make PLEASE

    Hiya Everyone
    I am doing some research for a friend of mine (Becky; No website at the moment still in production) who is thinking of starting a small business making handmade bags. She has experience in embroidery, sewing machine and by hand to a high quality as she used to work as a seamstress. So the quality of the product will be flawless.
    The research I am conducting is to find out whether there actually is a target audience for the type of bag she wants to design. She was considering making patchwork shoulder bags roughly the size of an A4 page. The bags will also have hand sewn flowers, birds and hearts on them.
    When I stumbled across this website I figured who better to ask than the experts in buying and choosing quality bags.
    So my questions for you guys are:
    1. would you ever buy a patchwork bag
    2. what sort of color arrangement would you be more attracted to (if you wouldn't by a patchwork bag could you pretend to help out with the research please)
    3. would you prefer it to be kept simple and one color scheme or all mixed and matched
    4. do you like the idea of having the embroidery on the bags to make them more individual?
    .5. any other hints tips or comments to help kick start her in the right direction.
    Thank you so much for your time it really is appreciated every comment will help her ensure that she is making the right products that will actually sell. (also if anyone knows any good sites that she could sell them on that would be amazing; that research is later not looking forward to that day )
    Cheers again
    Harriet
    p.s If she does get this business of the ground I will let you all know the developments

    On Patchworks. Yes I bought a Coach patchwork hobo bag I lobve the blend of blue, green pink and pastel purple to it. For as long as the colour compliment, it works.

    On embroidery. I own a Dior Saddle satin bag with embroidery on it. the material and embroidery gave the bag an Asian feel to it.

    Of course on both bags I like quality hardware and leather strap/handles. I won't use a bag that looks like it came off from Target or some street market. The hardware gives a bag a distinctive individualized feel (hardware gives bags a personality). The leather strap ensure that the bag is sturdy (One thing that's important is that the leather strapped is stitched onto the bag and not glued on)

    Just my opinion on this.

    Hi, I like light pastel colors, mixed or matched. Especially for the spring and summer. The idea about embroidery is great. I feel good when I know my handmade bag is unique and embroidery gives a unique look.
