Leather Handbags

If you’re looking for an investment that can endure the test of time, try a leather handbag.

No kidding. The lifespan of high-quality pure leather can be decades. A full-grain bag that’s regularly oiled and carefully stored might see you through at least 30 years. That’s nearly a full career for a professional or long enough to make your designer handbags heritage pieces you can easily hand down.

The Benefits of Buying a Leather Handbag

We’ve already talked about durability, but leather is also a flexible fabric with a soft, supple feel. A leather tote or purse gets better with age, too, as its finish develops a vintage patina over time. Leather also breathes, fighting off odors, and is water-resistant enough to stand a light drizzle. A quality leather bag can also be repaired.

So while that designer handbag might seem like a splurge right now, over the years it will become a great investment.

How to Choose a Leather Bag

The first thing to consider when investing in a premium leather handbag is scale.

Are you a minimalist who needs nothing more than keys, a few cards, a phone and lipstick? Small crossbody bags or a leather clutch will be perfect for you.

Are you a mom on the go or a busy professional who needs to keep all the things at her fingertips? Leather tote bags give you room for plenty of essentials. Many leather totes also include padded protection for a tablet or laptop that let you check in on a Zoom meeting or keep the kids entertained.

There are, of course, endless in-between options, too. Leather satchels or shoulder bags polish a tailored ensemble, while a leather hobo bag relaxes your look a bit.
