Various types of leather bag
Nice leather bags come in many different shapes and sizes. We’ll name a few for you.
• One of the most famous types of leather is sheepskin. Sheepskin is known for being very thin, soft and supple. A disadvantage of this type of leather is that it’s vulnerable. This means that wear and tear is quick to show, and it may even tear. A bag of sheepskin will often not last very long. If you want a sturdy bag that lasts a long time, choose another type of leather.
• An option for stronger leather is cow leather. It’s much sturdier, stronger and thicker. The skin of cows is often a couple of centimetres thick. When processing this leather, layers are removed, or split, which makes this type of leather less thick when sold. The more times it has been split, the less sturdy a leather bag. Various types of bags are often made of cow leather, including briefcases and fashionable ladies’ bags. Nice leather bags will often be made of cow leather.
• When compared to cow leather, calfskin is finer and thinner. In addition, it’s more supple, which makes it perfect for elegant ladies’ bags. Despite being finer and thinner than cow leather, this type of leather is still very strong. It’s also smooth and fine, which makes it perfect for an elegant nice leather bag for fashion-conscious women.
• Another type of leather is pigskin. This leather is easy to process and can often be found in many colours in stores. It’s not often used for the outside of bags, but more commonly for the lining of a leather bag. Because pigskin is very sturdy, it can strengthen other types of leather. Pigskin makes thin leather more sturdy and prevents it from sagging when you put your leather bag down. This way, the leather bag will keep its nice shape.
• Sometimes leather is also made of horsehide. It’s thick but still very supple and soft to the touch. It’s very easy to process this type of leather, thanks to its suppleness, so it’s easy to turn it into a nice leather bag.
• Snake leather has been used for items including bags for years. Nowadays this type of leather is banned in many countries, and often the only type of snake leather still allowed is water snakes leather. It’s available in various colours, such as brown and white. The leather of a snake is not smooth, like that of cattle, calves, sheep or pigs. The special details make it look exotic. Snake leather is very thin, so it is often reinforced wit pigskin, for example.
• You might not have heard of it, but ostrich leather is also a thing nowadays. It is used more and more often for bags. Leather of ostriches is strong and has a decorative structure. Ostrich leather is used more and more to make nice leather bags. You’ll have a unique and beautiful leather bag. Do you want to buy a leather bag? You’ll notice that leather can be processed in many ways. One of the options is smooth leather. This is the outside of an animal’s skin, which makes it very smooth, as the name implies. The material is flexible and is processed into a sustainable, stiff and smooth product you can use to make bags, for example. Another type of leather is patent leather. The leather will have been given a shiny layer of varnish, making your leather bag stand out even more. Nubuck is also a possibility. This type of leather is also made of the top layer of the skin. While smooth leather and patent leather are finished neatly, a nubuck treatment only sands the skin lightly so the material remains rougher. A last option is suede, which is the only type made of the bottom part of the skin. This makes the surface of suede a little more rough, giving leather bags a more luxurious look. In addition, this type of leather is warmer, but it does need more maintenance. If you don’t take care well of a suede leather bag, it will damage easily, so pay attention to that.
