Essential fashion information: The story behind messenger bagsMessenger bags are one of those things which you may have heard of but are not entirely sure what they are. However chances are that you will have come across them at some point or you might even own one as they are the height of fashion at this moment in time.

Messenger bags are bags which are meant to be worn over one shoulder. Consequently they usually have one strap which is slung around the chest resting the bag on the lower back. They get their name as the design was originally intended for messengers, as their construction meant that large loads could be carried comfortably and accessed easily. In ancient times messenger bags were carried on foot or horseback and more recently are the bag of choice for postal workers and bicycle couriers.

However they are currently an urban fashion accessory and are used by people of all professions. Messenger bags have been designed for carrying laptops so modern businessmen can carry their computers round easily. Another derivative is the school satchel which many of us will remember from our time in education. University students are also a major source of demand as messenger bags are an ideal way of carrying things like pads and paper to lectures and look good slung over the shoulder as you are walking around the campus.

Traditionally made from cloth, messenger bags are made from plastic-based materials as well as leather and cotton these days. Dunlop is perhaps the most famous brand for them today but other designer makes such as Bench and Calvin Klein also produce models.

Where can I find high quality messenger bags?

Shopping on the high street can often mean paying inflated prices and buying cheap models off the market opens you up to the risk of fakes so the best bet is buying online.
