Why You Should Own A Leather Handbag

See why purchasing your own designer leather handbag is a great decision and learn how to select the right one from Take a look!

At Brahmin, we believe that there's nothing like a leather handbag. The luxurious material is soft yet durable, and it only gets better with age. Here are some of the many reasons why you should consider owning a leather handbag.

Durability & Flexibility

Leather is one of the most durable materials you can find, which makes it ideal for a handbag. This means that even soft leather handbags are able to withstand the wear and tear of everyday life. And, if it does get scratched or scuffed, a little leather cream can usually fix the problem. It's flexible too, so your Brahmin handbag will maintain its shape even when it's packed full.

Sustainable Choice

Unlike synthetic materials like polyurethane (PU) leather, which typically ends up in landfills, authentic leather is a natural material that biodegrades. It can be recycled and used again and again when your bag finally reaches the end of its lifespan.

Long-Term Quality Investment

A good leather handbag is a wise investment. The initial cost may be higher than other materials, but leather bags last much longer. With proper care and storage, a leather handbag can easily last for decades. And because leather looks better with age, your bag will only get more beautiful as time goes on.

Stylish & Elegant

Of course, leather bags are also the epitome of style and elegance. Trending purse styles can dress up any outfit whether you're wearing jeans and a tee or a cocktail dress.

How to Select a Leather Handbag

Now that you know the many benefits of owning a leather bag, it's time to choose the right handbag for you from the Brahmin selection. Here are a few factors to consider when shopping our leather handbags.

Choose a Handbag Style

Consider your lifestyle and needs when choosing a leather handbag style. For example, a leather crossbody bag is perfect for travel or running errands, while a tote bag is ideal for work or school. Your personal style should also play a role in your decision. If you're more of a classic dresser, look for leather bags in timeless styles, while trendier dressers may want to consider more unique or exotic leather handbags.

Find the Perfect Bag Size

If you're always on the go, a smaller leather handbag may be more convenient. If you need to carry a lot of stuff, opt for a larger leather handbag. You may also want to consider your height when choosing a bag size. A taller person may be able to carry a larger bag without it looking overwhelming, while a petite person may want to opt for something smaller.
