For years, designers have been dealing with hordes of skilled DIYers who have figured out ways to avoid paying hundreds of dollars for clever designs and instead created a homemade version.

Available exclusively on Net-A-Porter, handbag line Kotur's latest carryall is a $450 clutch covered in gold tinsel and jingle bells that only looks DIY.
