The kind of bags we buy is determined by:

a. Purpose- Various bags  are made for different uses; to hold makeup, toiletries,tools, groceries, shoes,party gifts,souvenirs,  outfits, cosmetics,  luggage, clothes, books, laptops, electronic gadgets and other items. 
b. Design- This is determined by the creator of the bag. Bags are made in different colors, sizes (V-shape, square, oval) and moulds (Bucket,basket), the combination of which appeals to the buyers and influence their decision in buying a particular bag. 
c. Price- This is dependent on a buyer's social status and financial capacity. A bag's price is determined by its manufacturer, brand label, material of production, exclusivity, custom orders, location and reseller price. 

Now we know what influence a buyer's choice when buying  a bag, while celebrities and fashion icons will go for designer bags and brand names, middle/low income class will rather buy a bag for its practicality purpose , cheaper price instead of its manufacturer's label .
