Sample Bags Pro Trends

Each Bags PRO Trend is on its own slide with implications, a quantified score, and examples linked to online bags articles, videos and images. Examples:

Modernized Tradition Rituals associated with holidays are blended with pop culture and beyond Implications - The rigid formalities of holidays like Christmas are becoming less applicable to young generations who are more involved in pop culture than ever. As brands and consumers perceive rituals to be more reflective of the times, the market for seasonal goods is expanded to be informal and approachable.

Exclamatory Eco Brands create packaging that overtly preaches sustainability Implications - Many consumers will actively seek out eco-friendly products, and consider doing their part for the environment a point of pride. As such, brands are taking a blatant approach in packaging designs to both lure in green consumers and offer an ego boost to those attracted to the prestige of eco living.

Keepsake Branding Brands leave an impression by creating packaging that's meant to be kept Implications - Unlike eco-focused packaging that focuses on minimal or biodegradable material, elaborate packaging that's meant to be kept or collected is being adopted by brands looking to leave an impression on consumers. This shift helps ensure that brands are remembered long after a product has been used or consumed by becoming a part of the home.
