Why are branded bags so special or preferred over many other equally stylish looking cheaper bags?
No matter what the design or style the local bags have, they cannot match the design and style of the branded bags. Because, they are either patented for or the design costs money, that is why the branded bags flaunt them and charge you a premium for it. A branded bag stands apart in a crowd and one can easily spot a fake or a local bag.
Branded bags have a reputation to maintain and they pay attention to the minutest details one can imagine. Everything has to be perfect before the bag is launched. The zips, the inner lining, the tassels, etc are all ensured to be of good quality and flawless. When it is a local bag, the attention to details usually stops at the outer material or the design. If more attention is paid, you have to pay more.

They are capable of handling more weight and improper use too, when compared to the non branded ones.
