She styled her self-made bag with a brown Zara top, Bata shoes, and black random brand blazer. Since then, Self-Made Bags have grown in popularity as bloggers from Bucharest, Dublin, and Boston have discovered them. Self-Made Bags are generally seen in chic, casual, and basic style. In October 2012, Chictopia wrote an editorial about DIY Jil Sander Leather Lunch Bag. Popular types of Self-Made Bags are pouch and denim clutch.
