Embracing designer bags in Kenya has not been so easy. First blame it on the high prices of the designer bags, two, blame it on the scarce availability of designer bags outlets and on the fact that many women think that a “bag is a bag” and don’t think of spending something like $150-500 on a bag as something worth splashing your money for, many would rather buy a 200 – 2000 bob bag than the designers.
