Why Leather???

Let's admit it, everyone...we all love leather goods and accessories, don't we??... Well, yes! and don't think that leather has become popular in this century with all the booming fashion industry. Actually, leather has been used by humans for creating clothes, goods, accessories and more for many years - The earliest record of leather artifacts dates back to 2200 BC. Ok, so, you know by heart that leather products are the best choices, especially for bags. But, do you actually know the real benefits of buying leather bags?... Well, no worries... We're about to dig in and explain the features and benefits of this special material that has dragged its popularity century over a century...

1- Durability & Flexibility: Leather is very well-known for its durability and resistance - that's actually one of the reasons that make it one of the most used materials for handbags. You can use your leather handbag every single day with no fear of getting it torn. Its natural flexibility also adds up as a complementary feature to its durability and in time it gets flexible which gives a unique form to its shape and makes it age beautifully while not losing anything from its stylish look, form or functionality.

2- Natural & Eco-Friendly: Leather is a natural material unlike other synthetic products used to make bags. This also means that the process of producing a leather bag does not pollute the environment as it'd do while producing a synthetic or faux bag by using more chemicals. Leather makes us feel good and gives a peace-of-mind, as knowing that it's natural, not made of unknown lab-based chemical products.

3- Naturally-Waterproof & Breathing: Leather bags provide a certain level of protection for your belongings inside if you suddenly get caught by drizzle or light rain. Of course, we don't mean to claim that nothing would happen if you get your bag soaked up in the water, but it can stand resistant against moisture proudly. Also, leather does breathe. That means, it fights also against bad odor, fungal attack, dust mites or dry abrasion that might easily happen to other fake leather or synthetic bags.

4- Long-Term Pocket-Saver: You may think that leather bags are expensive and may make you tentative during your buying process. However, if we show you a little calculation, you'll be convinced that investing in a genuine, top-grain leather bag will actually save you money in the long term than buying a cheap, low-quality bag. Ok, for instance, when you buy our Amsterdam Briefcase for 485€, you will use it approximately for the next 10 years (although most probably more, if you take good care of the leather), it means that it costs you only 48,5€/year. And assuming you use it 5 workdays/week with a total of approx. 230 working days per year, the cost/day is 0.2€. So, that's definitely not expensive and a well-worth investment for a smart shopper. Otherwise, you'd need to replace your low-quality bag every year or so, which definitely makes it way more expensive in the long-term.

5- Stylish & Elegant: Its unique sense of elegance and sophistication of a leather bag can be, by far, the first thing that the whole world agrees on. When you carry a top-grain leather briefcase, be it in navy blue, red or just classic black color, you'd most probably feel the most classy person in the entire meeting room, during your business trip and all in-between. Or take, for example, a laptop backpack that is handmade with luxurious and fine details that you can take to work, use for a comfortable daily-commute... Its timelessness with a sleek and elegant look is what you would ask from a laptop bag, right?

ok, now that we've finished mentioning why you should choose leather handbags, we're going to mention why you should choose Evan Red Briefcases (Amsterdam Collection) or Backpacks (London Collection).

So, first of all, all our bags, both briefcase and handbags are made of top-grain leather, so all those beautiful features and benefits we've listed above directly apply to our bags - but what makes our bags unique is the combination of its sleek and timeless design with the smart and functional interior. This plays an important factor as you may know as a working professional in the first place, that when it comes to buying a laptop bag, you look for something more than just being stylish. It has to be functional too. Or just reverse it, it can be functional, but way too far from being even in the stylish borderline? That's exactly why our bags are the perfect choices for you!...
