FACTORS TO CONSIDER WHEN PURCHASE A LEATHER BAG:

STYLE

Leather bags come in a variety of styles. You need to choose the one that reflects your personality but also offers you the practicality to be used in your daily life.

Handbags/Totes:

    Leather handbags and Tote bags are women's best friends for years. A handbag/tote is like the little black dress of your bag wardrobe. From the leather professional tote bag to the chic evening handbag, it goes with anything and will get you through anything.

    Backpacks:

      In the past, leather backpacks for women have been seen as something that is only dedicated to students, young people or travelers. But it is not anymore the case.

      With all the very stylish models available now, they have proudly found their place in women's wardrobe.

      You can now enjoy all the practicality that backpacks offer (easily handle heavy loads and keep your hands free to negotiate any challenge you face) and look feminine.

      Since with backpacks, the weight is focussed on your back, it is important to consider the comfortability of the Shoulder strap (prefer ones that are padded and adjustable to fit your size for example)

      Crossbody/Shoulder Bags:

        You can find sometimes annoying to remove the backpack each time you need something while sightseeing around a town or city.

        That's when the crossbody leather bags come into play!

        A crossbody bag is a good choice for an everyday bag when you just need to carry the essentials but don’t want to lug around a bulky amount of baggage. Whether you are exploring a new city, enjoying a night out with friends, a music festival, or a day of shopping, there are plenty of occasions when a crossbody bag is a useful and necessary accessory.

        Briefcases:

          Leather Briefcases help you reach this boss-style that you aspire when you starting your career.

          But sometimes, women have a hard time to find a leather briefcase that combines both feminine style and functionality, since they have often been related a men's products.

          Another point to take into account is that some bags don’t come with straps, which means you have to carry it in your hand. This is impractical and annoying.

          You often need both hands to grab something out of your bag, and you can’t do that if you have to carry the bag by the handle instead of over your shoulder.

          Convertible Bags: 

            Convertible leather bags offer the advantage to combine all the qualities of the bags listed above.

            They are a good option if you need to often need to switch your style depending on the requirements of your day.

            LEATHER QUALITY

            One of the most important criteria.

            You want your leather bag to last for a long time, especially depending on the investment you put into.

            Different types of leather are available in the market:

          • Full Grain Leather
          • Top Grain Leather
          • Genuine Leather
          • Synthetic Leather
          • Vegan Leather
          • Suede Leather

          • The choice of one type rather than another depends on what you are looking for.

            If you need your leather bag to be water-resistant (because you don't want to ruin your valuables, because of the first rain) Full Grain may not be a good option even if it has the highest quality.

            BUDGET

            You probably do not want to go into debt to buy your leather goods.
            Consider synthetic leather bags that often offer more affordable options.

            SIZE

            Do you plan to carry a lot or larger objects in your leather bag?
            Do you plan to use it as a carry-on travel bag (don't forget to check the carry on size for your most frequently used airline)?
            Are you looking for a multi-use leather bag? 
            Do you need a bag that will take a 15-inch laptop?

            Depending on your needs, the point is to find the appropriate size.

            And remember that bigger is not necessarily better!

            If you plan to only carry your strict essentials, having the biggest bag on the market may not be the best option.

            Without making you languish longer, here is the list of 10 leather bags that will uplift your everyday look with style and use:

            HOW TO MAINTAIN YOUR LEATHER BAG

            Since there are different types of leather, therefore they are different ways to care for each one.

            The first thing is to check the manufacturer’s suggestions for cleaning instructions.

            Second thing is to avoid any trouble by carrying along with a cosmetics pouch. Indeed, if you directly throw your cosmetics in your leather bag, there is a chance that one day, they will spill and stain the linings of your bags. You don't want to take the risk!

            Here are some other tips to make sure your favorite bags last for years:

            - For FULL-GRAIN / TOP-GRAIN / GENUINE Leather

            • Wipe your leather bag down with a rag to keep it free of dust and dirt. You can use extra virgin olive oil, beeswax or spray to condition the surface, keeping it soft and supple.
            • Store your leather bag carefully in a place that is neither too humid nor too dry. A moderately humid environment allows it to retain its essential moisture.
            • Don’t keep your leather bag near a radiator or a hairdryer. They can dry out the leather.
            • Avoid long exposure on the sunlight to not speed up the darkening process of your leather bag
            • You can apply leather polish to protect it from everyday dust and grease.
            • Avoid putting your FULL-GRAIN / TOP-GRAIN / GENUINE Leather in contact with water

              - For Faux Leather:

              • If your synthetic leather bag is starting to get dirty, use a damp cloth to wipe it or gently hand wash it. 
              • Avoid using heat or dry cleaning as the chemicals could destroy your faux leather bag, leading to cracks.
              • Avoid storing them directly under sunlight, that may cause cracks in the long term

                - For Patent Leather (with a shiny finish):

                • Wipe your patent leather bag with a glass cleaning solution using a soft white rag or cotton pads

                - For Suede Leather:

                • Protect your suede leather bag with a water repellent spray to avoid water damage or visible liquid stains
                • Suede Leather bags are one of the most vulnerable types of leather. So you may consider going to a specialist if you are not sure to clean them in the appropriate way
