Leather for bags, handbags and leathergoods

The right leather article to be used for leathergoods, handbags, bags and luggages is the article with a “character”. The dimension of the skin isn’t important: that depends only from the dimension of the bag or the leathergood you want to produce. The essential is the final look you want to give to the leathergood. For small pochette you can use rigid skins, but also soft skins for big bags, sportbags, day or night bags. The most important resistance to maintain are the bending and the abrasion.

On our website into the handbags – shoes category (http://www.leatherfor.us/en/leather-for-sale/leather-hides-7-0/Handbags---Shoes.html ) there are goatskins, but also buffalos, half calf and split leather, all with different characteristic, dimension and grain each other. They’re shining, matt, printed, plottered, shrinked…

The best leather article to be used for bags are:

-     Full grain. These leather maintain the full original grain of the animal. The grain is the characteristic of the article and the finishing will personalize it. Full grain articles could be matt or shining but also printed or plottered.



-       Split leather. They’re obtained splitting the leather and taking the lower part of the skin, so the flesh side splitted and divided from the grain part. They’re used as suede leather.
