How to Choose Leather Bags

What leather privilege ier?

The leather bag, this classic … And yet it is so difficult to recognize a leather quality!

So we’re pretty nice at DDM, we give you a helping hand to spot the good leathers. Opt for the best: calfskin, lamb, buffalo, woolly skins and exotic leathers (ostriches, crocodiles, snakes, fish etc.)!

Discover the 4 questions to ask to detect a leather bag of real quality:

Where was it made?

You would expect it: the indications “Made in France” or “Made in Italy” are the guarantee of a unique know-how and quality. But that’s not all, other countries are also sources of a high quality leather production!

What is the leather used?

 It is very important to know with what leather your bag has been made! If you can, prefer the full-grain leather, but in any case, avoid the leather crust (less thick and less resistant than traditional leather). It is called a full-flower when all the layers of the skin are preserved for the manufacture of leather, flower when the upper layer and leather crust are removed when only the strongest lower layers are kept, which are also The less beautiful …

What is the provenance of the leather used?

 The origin, that is to say where the leather has been tanned, must also not be neglected.

The United Kingdom, Spain and South Africa are famous for making fine lamb leather and France and Italy for the manufacture of many other very good quality leathers. And why this ? These leathers are tanned with products much more respectful of health and the environment.

What is my first impression of this leather bag or bag?

 Because yes, the bag or the bag, it is you who will carry it, and as the saying so well says: “the first impression is always the right one”! Use your senses … Sight, smell and touch will help you make the right choice!

Observe the imperfections, the grain and the overall appearance of the leather. Also check the regularity of the seams and knuckles that will help you define whether you are dealing with quality leather or not! The presence of imperfections must not be prohibitive, know that only the largest houses of leather make a leather PAR-FACT!

Also, you can rely on the smell. Leather being a natural material, it must have a singular odor but in no case an unbearable odor! Do you smell a chemical odor or smell too strong? So flee! And to recognize a faux leather, it’s quite simple, it has no smell!

We promised you, at Dressing du Monde, we guarantee you the quality of the products put online, that we verify ourselves, and we take charge of finding you ONLY high-quality leathers!
