If you’re always on the search for that perfect bag to carry all your essentials, then look no further! Leather backpacks make the perfect accessory that offers the optimal blend of style and function. Whether jet-setting around the world, rushing to class, or taking a casual jaunt around town, a leather backpack will hold all your essentials and keep you looking pretty darn good while doing so.

Though they tend to carry a pretty hefty price tag, genuine leather bags are well worth the cost—especially if they are handmade. With expert craftsmanship and the general durability of leather, they’re bound to last for many years and even weather to a beautiful patina in the process. They just get better with time!

If you are vegan or simply prefer a more animal-friendly accessory, there are many faux leather options as well. And don’t think you have to sacrifice quality or style either. Scroll down for a list of beautifully hand-crafted bags that rise to meet any occasion.
