How to choose the best replacement purse strap?

A purse is more than just a functional accessory to carry your essentials - it's an extension of your style and personality. One of the most important components of a purse is the strap. A good strap can make a world of difference in terms of comfort, convenience, and style. With so many options to choose from, it can be overwhelming to find the perfect one. In this blog post, we'll discuss how to choose the best purse straps for your needs.

1. Consider the Material

 The material of the purse strap is one of the most important factors to consider. Leather is a classic choice that is durable and versatile but more expensive. A fabric or woven strap can add a pop of color or pattern to your purse and is typically more lightweight and affordable. A chain strap can add a touch of glam to your outfit, but may not be as comfortable to wear for long periods. Sambboho purse straps use high-end full grain leather treated with organic beeswax for the best comfort and quality.

2. Evaluate the Width

 The width of the strap can impact the comfort and stability of your purse. A wider strap distributes the weight of the bag more evenly across your shoulder or across your body, making it more comfortable to wear for extended periods. A narrower strap may be more suitable for a small purse or a special occasion bag. Sambboho purse straps are 1.5” wide, which make them perfect for longer wear time.

3. Think about the Length

 The length of the strap can determine how you wear your purse. A shorter strap is ideal for a shoulder bag, while a longer strap is better suited for a crossbody or messenger bag. A removable strap allows you to switch up the style of your purse and gives you more versatility in how you wear it. At Sambboho, our replacement purse straps have a length of 37.5” which makes them perfect as a crossbody or shoulder strap. The wear is up to you and your body type. Please note that we can make shorter or longer lengths on demand, send an email to prior purchase if you have a specific length requirement.

4. Match the Style

 The style of the purse strap should complement the overall aesthetic of your bag. If you have a classic leather bag, a leather strap in a similar color could be a seamless (yet boring) choice. A colorful fabric strap can add a playful touch to a neutral bag, while a chain strap can elevate a simple bag for a night out. Our beaded leather purse straps are handcrafted using glass beads and high quality leather. They are designed to upgrade any purse to designer fashion status. Any of our existing beaded patterns from our other product lines can be made as purse straps. Email if the design you want is missing. We will make it for you at no extra cost.

5. Consider the Hardware

 The hardware of the strap should match the hardware of your purse for a cohesive look. Pay attention to the quality of the hardware - a flimsy or cheap clasp can break easily and compromise the functionality of your purse (you get what you pay for). Sambboho purse straps use safe high quality hardware clips on each end to use on any bag with hooks. Most of our straps use a silver hook, message if you wish to get them in gold.
