Things to Consider Before Buying a Leather Bag

Buying a leather handbag should not be difficult: they are all so there are plenty of beautiful, so soft and so stylish designs. However, to make sure you are making the right buying decision, here are some details to take into consideration when purchasing handbags for women:


Type of leather used


When treated apropiately, a top quality leather bag looks great even after 10 years of use. Contrary heavily treated leather does not develop that attractive patina that high quality leather gets through aging. Another commonly used material, bonded leather, doesn’t age well and doesn’t smell like real leather. Full-grain leather is the best material. You will wear handbags proudly and confidently for many years.


Country of Origin


Before going shopping, remember this old saying: “Romance French. Drive German. Dress Italian.” Countries like Italy, England and France are well known for the quality of leather they constantly produce. If you want a high quality product, look for premium Italian leather or leather produced in other reputable countries. Italians are known for their great craftsmanship and attention to detail. Thanks to the au naturel liming and dying, Italian leather is better than any other leathers on the market. This is why Nantiv handbags are all made from the finest authentic Italian leather.




If you need a work bag, opt for black or dark brown, which are best suited for a professional environment. Light brown or beige go well with casual outfits or a more relaxed working atmosphere. Women who want to add a pop of color to their outfits should choose can opt for leather bags in shades of green, red, pink or even yellow.




Quality handbags have quality metallic hardware. You don’t want to spend a lot on a bag with rusty hardware. Therefore, make sure you carefully inspect all the small features of the bag: buckles, handles, locks, metallic rings, zippers (metal zippers are better than plastic zippers), shoulder strap fittings.




Contrary to popular belief, price is not necessarily an indicator of quality. Many brands incur into plenty of overhead costs; from distribution, including costs of permanent showrooms, to advertising, there are many variables affecting the final price of a bag. The trend of emerging brands that are channeling sales direct to consumer meanwhile keeping their operation oversimplified can be the smartest investment: you get the best price for value. They are selling exceptional quality products for less.
