The right luggage at the right time: the leather bag


For the perfect getaway, whether it’s a weekend or a day trip, finding the right size and the type of travel bags suited to our needs is very important to ensure its success.

Whether your style is more classic or more attentive to current trends, handcrafted leather bags and travel bags they go well with any look you choose. In fact, they are chameleon-like accessories in colors and shapes, whose material makes them always fashionable, even and above all for traveling.

The winning element is the skin, conjugated in its heavier variants to cope with the harsh temperatures of the winter months – an example is the sheepskin, a very resistant and heavy leather, suitable for those who want to be casual but at the same time glamor.

The travel bags for the modern woman (such as the travel bags for men) made of leather lend themselves to more situations: perfect for short trips, they are good as carry-on baggage to be carried by train or plane, but also as an accessory for going out during the day.

For lovers of vintage and the world of leather goods, this winter comes back into fashion another type of bag very chic and comfortable: the handbag. Large and with large pockets on the front. A classic taste with a contemporary “twist” that is very reminiscent of the past and the Hollywood divas!

Elegance and practicality: the union for a trendy trip


Travel with elegance it can be difficult if you seek a balance between stylistic refinement and practicality of the accessory chosen to perform a mainly practical function. Often the two things do not go hand in hand, indeed: more often than not, a beautiful bag does not reflect the canons of functionality and comfort required for such circumstances.

Like any self-respecting traveler, it is essential to pay close attention to the choice of travel bags (for men or women): these must represent an ally, the perfect travel companion. They must be resistant, comfortable it’s enough capacious and comfortable to access everything they contain: from clothing to a book to read. But above all, travel bags must guarantee security in relation to all that is stored within them. Are you ready to leave for your trip out of town now?

Remember, therefore, to apply these five important rules for the choice of your baggage, depending on the destination:

  1. Between soft travel bags and hard bags, it is better to choose the first ones for a short trip, as the rigid variants are more suited to long-term journeys and could be a hindrance in the case of small trips;
  2. Choose a bag of one robust or tech-resistant rain material: you are moving during the winter period, so you will have more than one chance to stumble into a storm (we hope not, but it is always good to start preparations!);
  3. For a weekend of pleasure or for professional reasons, you need to be organized to the maximum and make sure that your bag or duffel bag in selected leather presents a good number of pockets, in order to organize the content in an orderly and rational manner;
  4. Opt for a bag that comes with a strap, to allow you to bring the shoulder bag. A shoulder strap will give you more freedom in your movements, as well as the convenience of having everything at your fingertips when you need it;

CAREFUL!and quality! A very important aspect that makes the difference between a “forever” bag and a “for now” bag. In principle, choosing handcrafted leather travel bags is ideal for avoiding bad surprises, to avoid discovering that your new entry it will last no more than a few months. There is also to say that generally travel bags require more spending than those from every day, so anyone would be annoyed at least realize that they have bought an accessory inconvenient and short life.
