Are Canadian-made handbags more expensive than imported bags?

Not necessarily. While many Canadian-made handbag brands can be a bit pricey, that’s because they typically offer handmade, designer handbags that are more expensive to produce than your average bag. Their handmade imported counterparts are usually just as expensive.

On the other hand, bags that are mass-produced in countries outside of Canada can be much cheaper because it takes much less time and money to create them.
