Published:  07 October, 2021

Sales turnover for women’s bags in the U.S. from March to August 2021 was just 2% lower than pre-pandemic levels in 2019, research and market analysis company NPD Group reveals.

An analyst at the company commented that the products rebounded faster than expected, likely due to a resurgence of daily travel and social activities prompting more sales of fashion goods. Shoulder bag revenues grew by 14%, while clutch bags increased by 2% and cosmetic cases led the pack with a jump of 48% on 2019 figures. Meanwhile, office briefcases lost ground by 5% and tote bags dropped just 1%.
