When designing custom hardware for handbags, it is important to keep various factors in mind. These factors can include the type of material the hardware is made from, the size and shape of the hardware, as well as its functionality and durability. It is crucial to ensure that the hardware is designed to complement the overall design of the handbag, while also being practical and long-lasting.


If your primary goal is to make your brand stand out and be recognizable to your target audience, then to achieve this, it is recommended that you invest in high-quality custom hardware for your brand. Custom hardware can enhance your brand marketing and add a unique touch to your accessories.


What is custom hardware?

Hardware refers to the various components of a bag that serve specific functions, such as zippers, clips, snaps, rings, hooks, chains, loops, and more. These components are typically made from plastic or white metal all with a plating or coating for color. They can be either off-the-shelf items or custom-made pieces. When it comes to metal hardware, the most common types of base metals used are zinc, copper, nickel, and iron.

Custom hardware versus off-the-shelf items

Using off-the-shelf hardware to build your handbag is much easier and more economical. At the Clutch Made Factory, we work with all types of hardware and vendors and offer our clients a variety of options for their specific design needs. However, investing in custom hardware can increase your brand value and recognition.


As we discuss in our article "The Marriage of Brand Identity + Accessory Design," your brand identity is expressed through your logo, colors, photos, and the product itself. By aligning these elements, you can create a cohesive brand. Adding custom hardware to your handbag production can further integrate and strengthen the cohesiveness of your brand in the eyes of your customers.

How much time to develop custom hardware


Answering this question about the time it might take to design and develop a custom hardware piece isn't as straightforward as you might think. It depends on various aspects of the brand and the function of the piece, as well as the intricacy of the design itself. However, it's worth noting that having a multimedia logo can help to reduce the time spent on developing custom hardware.


When it comes to product development, a logo's beauty is not the only aspect that matters. It should also serve a specific purpose. To ensure that your logo is functional, it is important to work with a designer during the development process. At the Clutch Made Factory, we are happy to assist you with the logo development process. Check out our branding services by clicking the link!
