Handbags available at wholesale stores are made of materials including denim, faux leather and faux suede among other materials. They feature accessories such as zipper cases, detachable wristlets and cellphone cases. Wholesalers typically work with large retail companies, but also sell items to individuals online or through outlet vendors.
Some wholesale companies work directly with manufacturers and are able to sell popular brand-name handbags at a reduced cost. Other wholesale companies are the manufacturer and sell the handbags they produce through a warehouse or third-party vendor. Because most retail stores obtain items through wholesale companies or distributors, it is possible to find handbags of almost any variety comparable to those found in department stores or malls.
