The handbag

Tote bags like this Status Anxiety 'The Lair' bag are designed to be functional and versatile, allowing you to carry around however much of pretty much anything you can fit in there — a dependable workhorse of the handbag world. However, some times we like to stuff tote bags with a little more than they are designed to handle, and this customer in particular was finding that the lack of a firm closure on her tote was leaving her items unsecured or causing them to fall out.

When the customer reached out to us for a free diagnosis/quote, we reviewed the photos she submitted and offered to install two magnetic closures — one on each side of the bag.

As you can see, we installed magnetic snaps on the inside of the bag — and in particular, thinner magnets that allowed the bag to retain its flexibility and a thinner profile why lying flat.
