Friend #1: Love your leather-made diaper bag! When did you buy it?
Friend #2: Oh, this old thing? It’s a hand-me-down! My older sister had it for
This kind of conversation between
friends is believable, only because good quality leather bags can last that long! Caring for the bag
and its maintenance is extremely important. However, in order for a leather
messenger bag or leather wallet to stand the test of time, you must consider
the following factors:
- vThe kind of leather
- vHow the leather was treated
- vThe rank of its grain
There is an additional cardinal
factor that should be considered before choosing: what type of animal’s leather
was used to make the bag?
Cowhide vs. Goatskin
Leather – The Dilemma of Choosing One over the other
Goat and cowhide are the more
popular types of leather that are used, especially when it comes to designing
wallets, and gloves. How can we choose which leather type will ensure most
Cowhide More Durable Than Goatskin
This is perhaps due to thickness
of cowhide which automatically equals to increased durability. Compared to
cowhide, goatskin is incredibly soft and thin and can be used to make some
leather items, but not bags.
Full Grain Cowhide Leather Is Affordable
In addition to being readily
available, the tanning process of full-grain cowhide leather is pretty
straightforward; which means no increased costs for the manufacturer or bag
designer. Translation: you pay less.
Cowhide Leather Can Be Fashioned In Many Ways
Due to its abrasion
resistant quality, wears and tears are an incredibly rare occurrence in cowhide
This allows designers to take
liberty with the fabric and fashion cowhide leather in a number of different
leather-made items such as wallets, messenger bags, diaper bags, belts, laptop
bags and gloves.
Maintenance and Care of Cowhide Leather
Firstly, you won’t be required to
put much effort into your bag’s maintenance. You can also ‘age’ the leather so
that it becomes a symbol of vintage beauty.
Cowhide full-grain leather bags
already have that classic look going on for them from the beginning. This
character just grows deeply and becomes immersed with elegance, tasteful beauty
and class as it ages.
