2 Product analysisA product analysis helps designers to examine products in detail.Designers often buy products from competitors or buy inspirational products.They examine and evaluate products as well as take them apart (disassembly).Designers might also look at products from the past.Also time and research costs are reduced as another company has already done this work.

4 Product analysis Open seam Cost – This bag cost £18. Customer-The target customer would be female. It could appeal to many ages starting from around age 15. the cost of the bag is quite a lot so this may put younger people off.Designer labelSize-32cm Wide40cm LongStraps= 27cmInside pocketStrap detailSafety- This bag is reasonable safe. There are no sharp edges and no small parts. The open seams are rough on the edges but would not do any harm. The bag should be kept away from small children as the straps could wrap around their necks.Function- this bag is designed to carry only a few items such as books, diaries, pencil case of purse. It is not big enough to carry a lot of items as the is no depth to the bag.Fabric DesignMaterials – This bag is made from 100% PVC Coated Cotton. Cotton is strong fibre so it is ideal for this bag.Care labelEnvironment- this bag is made from cotton which has then been treated with PVC. Cotton can be recycled however whether it can still be recycled with the PVC treatment I am not sure. It easy to clean though meaning no energy or water wasted in the care of the product.Aesthetics- This bag has a bright floral pattern typical of the Cath Kidston style. It has to long straps allowing the bag to be carried over the shoulder.
