All About Leather

So leather. You've probably heard a bunch about it and you see it everywhere in really nice stuff. But what actually is it? And why is it a great material for duffles?

Well, let us tell you a little more about why we love leather.

1. IT LOOKS AWESOME

No surprises here, but real leather has a completely unique look. It's been around for so long it has a brand all on its own. Real leather can't help but impress. When you walk around with a real leather bag, you'll be inundated with ''hey is that real leather, it's nice!''. It's an instant conversation starter and tells everyone you're a person that values higher quality goods.

It shows you're a person who values things that last. Leather is notoriously difficult to work with. It's tough, strong and doesn't bend easily. This makes it expensive as producers need to put in major work to get something that is practical. This is a known quality. Often, one of the reasons people love real leather is because they value the grit and determination that it takes to produce a good of real quality.

Real leather duffles will also go with any look. The most common colors, black and brown, are easy to pair with simiarly colored shoes and belts to give a real premium look. Whether you're going to the office or away on a weekend, you'll find these are an easy accessory to take.

2. IT LASTS FOREVER

The long lasting property of real leather is a major attraction to most of our customers. Real leather comes from thick, quality animal hides. The most common animals, cow and buffalo have thick hides. Over centuries, these have evolved to be resistant to things like harsh weather and keen predators. These hides are tough and designed to last through years and years of tough conditions. When was the last time you saw a nylon or polyester bag with those quality of materials?

These hide qualities go directly onto your bag. The best grades of leather (more info on these below) will lose none of this decade-designed longevity.

High quality top layers of animal hide such as full grain cowhide leather should keep up with a hectic lifestyle for decades. They should really put up with anything you can throw at it. This is in massive contrast to nylon or polyester which is really only designed to last over the short term.

Typically you will find that buffalo leather is thicker than cow leather. This makes it more difficult to work with, but also means it will often have longer durability. Buffalo leather is heavier than cow equivalents, so be sure to bear this in mind.

3. IT'S AN INVESTMENT

When you pick up a bag made from quality leather, you'll know it's not the cheapest choice out there. Making leather bags is notoriously difficult and is reflected in the price.

However, if you really think about it, leather can be a great investment.

If a quality leather duffle lasts for decades and decades, it could well be the last work or travel bag you ever buy. Think of all that money you could save from not needing to buy a new bag every few years.

Pro tip! Leather bags also need to develop a patina over the years. This is a rich, unique layer on your bag that gives extra character and that distressed look you're really looking for. We see that many of our customers actually prefer their leather bags as the years go by. So it's not only an investment that saves you money over time, but it's an investment in a bag that will only get better over time.

Types of Leather

If you're new to the world of premium leather, you might be seeing confusing words like patina or grain out there. Here's what you really need to know:

If you're looking for a long-lasting, great looking, premium leather bag, you need to go for either a full grain or top grain leather bag. Avoid anything that says 'bonded' or 'genuine' leather. These are just fancy terms for the lowest quality of leather.

Let's dive into what these terms actually mean in more detail.

Full Grain Leather

Confusingly, top grain leather is actually not the best quality available. Full grain leather is generally considered the best quality out there. This leather essentially comes straight off the animal onto the bag. It's the very top layer of the hide, as natural as it gets. No chemical processes are permitted.

Full grain leather is super thick and therefore notoriously difficult to work with. That's why it's a little more expensive.

Make sure you're aware that full grain leather is 100% natural skin and will have blemishes and imperfections - just like our own skin!

As no chemical processes are applied, full grain leather is usually the longest lasting. It'll develop its own pattern (sometimes called a patina) over time.

Take a look here at our full grain leather duffle bags.

Top Grain Leather

Top grain leather is still the top layer of the hide (the best layer!) and is really premium quality leather. However, this time, chemicals and finishes are permitted.

Chemicals and finishes will give a really even, smooth finish. For for this reason, top grain leather is often the go-to fashion choice. If the blemishes and imperfections of full grain leather aren't for you, then top grain leather will be the way to go.

Top grain leather is easier to work with due to the chemical processes that can be applied, making it usually a little more affordable. Note though, it's unlikely to be as hard-wearing.

Other Types of Real and Fake Leather

Aside from full grain leather and top grain leather, there are other options out there in the leather world.

We do recommend top or full grain leathers. But you will see other grains out there and it's really important you know exactly what you're getting. Read on for the other options.

GENUINE LEATHER

Now this is a confusing one. Genuine leather is actually the lowest quality grade of real leather available out there.

It's still real leather, but it's made from the lower level of the hide. Often, scraps of unused leather are stitched together to make a leather good.

This impacts the hide properties significantly. Genuine leather does not last as long as full or top grain leather and this is something to really consider before going here.

BONDED LEATHER

Bonded leather is essentially the same as genuine leather. Except in this case, it is definitely sitiched together pieces of leather. Processes can make sure that this isn't noticeable, but the longevity is significantly affected.

Pay careful attention to the description of leather quality.

PU LEATHER

PU leather, often called faux leather, is actually not leather at all.

It's a plastic alternative that is intended to mimic the properties of real leather. A really good way to tell faux leather from real leather is to press it with your finger. If it's cold to the touch, it's probably fake. Real leather will have a slightly warm feel to it as it is a natural product.

PU leather or faux leather duffle bags will not have any of the durability qualities of real leather bags. Although it can look similar, it will certainly not have the same longevity.

Storage

If you're looking to go on vacation for a few days, you'll need a bag that can carry all your gear. For this reason, it's super important you take a look at the storage system of any leather duffle.

Sure, a bag with just one big interior compartment can work just fine. But, how much easier would it be if all your gear could have its own compartments?

Interior

Look for a men's leather weekender bag for men that has thought out its internal storage system.

You don't want to lose all your smaller gear with your clothes and shoes. It's often really handy if your leather duffle has a special place for your tablet, laptop and even pens and business cards.

Exterior

One that's always overlooked, but it can be super useful. Look out for a leather bag with external pockets that make for easy access.

If you can, look for one that has a great external storage system. We often find that these work great as a leather carry on bag when flying by airplane.

Think about what happens when you take your leather bag with you when travelling. It could be super convenient to just take out your passport and airline ticket from an exterior pocket instead of needing to dig around inside your bag.

Nicely placed exterior pockets can really make travelling with your leather duffel bag a breeze.

Bonus! Some duffels now come with totally separate shoe compartments. If you're going hiking during your vacation (or have notoriously smelly feet), these can be a lifesaver. You can put your dirty shoes in a separate compartment, and not worry about them dirtying (or stinking up!) your clothes or accessories.

Size

Be super careful with this one.

If you haven't had a real leather bag before, you'll likely find a leather duffel to be heavier than anything you've used before. We do recommend only buying men's and women's leather duffels with a shoulder strap. This really helps with ease of carrying. Some may even come with additional backpack straps and be converted to a backpack for even more carrying ease.

Aside from that though, be wary of the size of the duffel bag. For most, a 20 inch small leather duffle bag will carry enough stuff for a couple of days. You'll easily get in a few changes of clothes, along with your shoes and any accessories.

For a long weekend, you might want to upgrade to a 24 inch so you can take your laptop, a few more gadgets and maybe a few more choices of outfits.

If you're looking for a duffel to keep you going for up to a week, we recommend you look to an extra-large duffel (sometimes these will go up to 28 inches).

In some cases we are able to produce custom made leather duffle bags. These will be made exactly to your specifications and sizes but depends heavily on our current manufacturing capacity. We recommend getting in touch with our friendly customer service team if you are interested in this service.

Color

Primarily, we recommend going for a leather duffle in a color that suits your main looks.

Black leather duffle bags can go with basically all outfits. The Executive Duffel is our most popular black leather duffle bag for men.

Brown leather duffle bags for men are a really premium choice too. Something to bear in mind is that the fewer processes completed on a leather good, the better for its durability.

Naturally, most animal hides will produce leathers in a darker brown color. This will make a small difference to the quality of the leather if the hide is not dyed.

Hardware

It's really important that the hardware on your travel bag is strong enough to keep up with the leather you've chosen. If you've got a full grain buffalo leather bag, you want to make sure the hardware is also built to keep up for decades.

Brass as a material for rivets, feet and buckles is made to keep up for the long haul.

Typically, you'll find that buckles are the safest from breaking. There are no real components that can give out on a buckle. But they are not the most convenient to open up each time.

Zippers are really convenient but can give out. Be sure that the zippers are extra thick. The bigger the better really, because they are unlikely to give in.

Magnetic closures can be a great balance as they are convenient but don't have a lot of components that can break.

Care

Any high quality leather good is built to last over the long haul. But there are actually a few things you can do to extend the life of a bag. A real target for an owner can be to develop a rich patina, and there are also a few more things you can do to develop this actively.

1. AVOID EXTREME WEATHER

As leather is a natural material, it does tend to be affected by either extreme heat or extreme cold.

Wherever possible, be really cautious with very heavy rain or stormy weather. If your leather bag does get excessively wet, you should air it out in a warm, dry climate away from direct sunlight.

Excessive heat exposure is a tricky one. You'll find that it will dry out your bag and cause wrinkles or cracks. This speeds up the distressed look and for some this is great. But for others, this may not be the desired outcome so be aware of this.

We also recommend keeping any leather good away from damp conditions. Don't put your leather bag in a damp cellar or in a box in a dark cupboard during a cold winter. This has been known over a longer period to lead to the growth of mould (as leather is a natural material). Wherever possible, keep your real leather good in a dry, airy climate.

2. USE A LEATHER CONDITIONER

Every 6 months, we recommend applying a layer of leather cream or conditioner to your bag. This really helps the fibers of the leather to stay in good condition.

Over time, the elements and oils in these conditioners will help to develop a rich natural patina and really bring out the character of your bag.

If you look after your leather bag, it can easily last decades.

Perfect for traveling

"This is a beautiful sturdy travel bag. It's big enough to fix two pairs of boots on the side, I have four jeans and tops, along with a heavy sweater and jacket. I have all my toiletries and my iPad fits perfectly in the side pocket. It arrived quickly and packed well. When I bought it I didn't realize how big it was going to be, but I'm very happy with the size. It is a bit heavy fully packed so if you are traveling where you have to lug your stuff around you may want something smaller. I'm planning on using it for our long road trips so it's perfect.

Quality Material — Exquisite Product

"This is my second purchase from the real leather company and once again, they did not disappoint! I got my duffel yesterday, and I couldn’t be happier with the leather quality or the construction. The material is so soft and supple, you can just feel that they used expensive leather as soon as you touch it. The canvas interior to the bag is thick and sturdy and provides a really nice contrast to the brown leather. The bag itself is also quite large and the color is deep and rich. As for the construction, it is clear the bag was made by someone with lots of experience and high attention to detail. Long story short, if you need a leather duffel, you’re not going to find a bag of this quality for a better price anywhere else. 10/10, would recommend.

(I should add, that I had a small issue I raised with customer support, and the service was quick and resolved the problem. This is a company that wants to satisfy its customers and it shows in everything they do.)" - Joe, The Break customer

At The Real Leather Company, we stock a range of vintage leather duffle bags and travel bags. These are made from only premium full grain and top grain animals hides and built to last a lifetime.

HOW DO I LOOK AFTER MY BAG?

Treating a real leather bag with care can extend its life by years.

We recommend the following to care for your leather bag.

Always wash your hands before caring for leather - oil from your hands can easily transfer to leather hide.

Once a week, we recommend taking a soft, dry (or slightly damp) cloth and briskly sweeping the leather. Don't forget the inside too! Use a cloth to wipe down the lining and remove any dirt or residue.

Use a good leather cream or conditioner once or twice per year to prevent your bag becoming dry or cracked. If you live in a dryer climate, you may need to do this more often. Simply apply the cream to the entire bag with a cloth and rub off any excess. We recommend using this all natural leather cream for our bags.

Be sure to take the time to care properly for your leather. If you do, your bag can have a good, long life.

CAN I GET IT MONOGRAMMED?

At this time, we do not provide monogramming or embossing services. However, all our bags can be monogrammed by most leather working dealers. We recommend taking our bags to your local dealer for more information.

CAN I GET IT WET?

Wherever possible, avoid damp or moisture on your leather bag. We know this is not always possible, so if your bag does get wet, here's what you do.

If you spill something on it, blot away the moisture with a clean dry cloth as quickly as you're able to.

Caught in a rainstorm? Be sure to let your leather bag completely air dry and do not use a heat source to speed up the drying (this can damage the leather). Stuff the bag with newspaper to help the bag keep its shape and absorb moisture from the inside.

WILL MY BAG SMELL WHEN I GET IT?

As this bag is made from real leather, it is likely to emit a strong, natural leather smell when you first receive it. This will fade over time.

Should this smell not be to your liking, we recommend airing out your bag in a cool, dry climate for 48 hours.
