The Iconic Chanel Bag

I can only wish that one day I will own a Chanel bag so until then I will just admire (and drool).  Here are some interesting things about the construction of these expensive but lovely bags:
  • During production, there are 180 essential operations performed on each bag.
  • More than 30 new styles are introduced each year.
  • It takes 6 60 15 craftspeople working up to 18 hours on each purse.
  • The garnet lining was inspired by the uniform Coco Chanel wore as alittle firl at an orphanage in Aubazine, France.
  • The final touches? The double-C logo clasp is fastened on, and the leather-and-chain shoulder strap is slipped through the golden eyelets.
