Loungefly Design Features

Loungefly bags feature a wide variety of licensed characters and designs, including Disney, Marvel, Star Wars, Harry Potter, and even sports teams and anime. Loungefly backpacks are also known for their high quality construction and durability.

These backpacks and bags have unique design features that make them different from other mini backpacks. Based on these elements, a consumer can know a lot about a particular piece simply by looking at the branding plaque. Let’s take a closer look at these details.

Plaques

Each backpack, cross-body bag, and purse made by Loungefly has a branding plate, or plaque, that communicates the overall value of the bag.

The highest quality (and highest priced) bags feature metal plates. These are the only ones found at Disney Parks. They are also found on high-end backpacks or limited-edition Loungefly accessories sold elsewhere. The more economically priced bags feature a fabric tag instead.

Zipper Pulls

The bags featuring a fabric tag are not made more poorly; they simply have fewer upscale design features included in the piece. For example, a metal-tagged bag will usually have a themed pattern on the interior lining, and possibly a shaped zipper pull, often made of enamel and always themed after the bag’s motif. Fabric-tagged bags will not have these features, and will have a standard zipper.

Straps

Loungefly backpacks, regardless of price, have straps that are crafted to be durable. The bags featuring metal plaques have padding in the straps for extra comfort. Fabric tagged bags do not have the extra cushioning.

Will this Loungefly be making it into your collection? We’d like to see your opinions in the comments below.
