Buying a New Handbag? Here's Why Leather Is Better

Whether you’re headed out for a night on the town or you’re simply dropping by your local cafe to pick up a latte, choosing the right handbag is a pivotal part of any outfit. However, one of the most critical choices we face when choosing a handbag is the material that the bag is made from. The choice of handbag material will determine how well the handbag ages, takes heavy loads, and holds up to regular use. Leather scores highly in all of these areas, making it, what our team of fashionistas believe to be the best choice when it comes to choosing your next handbag.

Timeless Flexibility and Beauty:

When you buy a new handbag, you need to consider how well the bag will age, especially if you will be using it daily. Common materials often snap, rip, or tear with prolonged usage. This can have a detrimental impact on the look and functionality of a handbag. However, the patina and flexibility of leather increases over time, meaning that they become more beautiful and practical the longer they are used.

Lasting Durability:

100% genuine leather bags are constructed with some of the best craftsmanship in the world. This makes the bags extra durable and able to last much longer than bags crafted from other materials.The bottom straps on leather handbags tend to be sturdier than on bags made of other materials — meaning your don’t have to worry about damaging your bag, no matter how much you keep in it.

An Investment in Quality:

Leather handbags may seem expensive, but they are a long term investment. A good leather handbag could last over a decade and more. Whereas the cost of purchasing a cheaper model each year will soon add up. Also, you are less likely to have to pay for repairs or maintenance on a quality leather handbag.

Resistant to Water and Other Damage:

Well treated leather is almost waterproof. Additionally, leather contains some anti-fungal properties so that handbags are less likely to develop mildew or mold as a result of getting wet — perfect for all those times you get caught in the rain.
