If you’ve ever wondered why designer bags are so crazy expensive, you need to watch this video.
Presented at the Fall/Winter 2014-2015 Christian Dior show, the Be Dior bag retails for $5,000. Shocking, right? We thought so, too, but wait until you see the ridiculous amount of work that goes into making each handbag.
Offering a rare sneak peak inside the French couture house, the video takes us step-by-step through the process of cutting the calfskin leather, forming the handles, installing the hardware and sewing together all of the seams—and most of this is done by hand!
It definitely makes you question how some brands can sell a handbag for $20.
Easily the best part of the video is when they install the leather interior, which makes it seem like you’re getting two bags in one—almost. And just in case you didn’t already feel like you were buying a work of art, the craftspeople wear white gloves to emboss the logo into the leather and install the final pieces of hardware.
Sure, we still think this bag is pricey, but at least you know you’re getting something truly special.
