Tag Workshop: Embroidered Wool Purse

Most Etsy sellers will tell you that having a really great first photo is the key to getting views, and ultimately, sales. It’s true that a fantastic and interesting photo invites people into your shop, but having really great tags is what helps you turn up in their searches. The Oh Canada Tag Workshop aims to help sellers find new ideas for tagging their items that will help shoppers find them.

Thistle Embroidered Wool Suit Coat Purse

This week, our tag workshop will focus on this unique upcycled purse by Heather Lair Designs. The description reads: This lovely little purse is made from parts of gently used wool suit coats. I construct the purse in pieces so I have an opportunity to embellish all over with embroidery. I developed a new design for this purse- thistle flowers and leaves!

This purse has a flap on the front that closes with a vintage button.
There is a patch pocket on the back for your cell phone, business cards or keys. Inside there are three pockets to help keep things organized.

soapstar suggests these tags:

bags & purses
, vintage, wool, grey,
recycled suit, upcycled, over the shoulder, thistle,
embroidery, buttons, pockets, herringbone tweed,
silk lining, ohcanadateam

Joanniel Creations recommends:

bags and purses, embroidery, upcycled,
wool, leaf, floral, patchwork, gray,
orange, vintage, artisan, ooak,
feminine, long strap

Oh So Sweet Prints suggests:

bags and purses, messenger purse, cross shoulder bag,
patchwork, wool, button embellishments, small,

grey, unique, one of a kind

And the actual tags are:

bags and purses, pouch, thistle, wool, gray,
leaves, embriodery, ohcanadateam, silk,
pockets, recycled wool, original,
buttons, heatherlairdesigns

Each list has some great style and technique keywords that real shoppers use. Even if you make very similar items, it’s important not to get into a tagging rut by using the same word combinations for every listing. Remember that tags can describe not only what an item is, but what makes it special as well.
