Buying a brand news ladies leather holdall should be a purchase that pays off for a number of years. The important thing is buying one that that not only shows its quality but is made from leather that will stand the test of time too. With that in mind, there are a few things you will want to look out for to ensure you get your money’s worth. Think about what you need to use it for, its style and design, colour and available space inside.
Longflight or Overnight
Every ladies leather holdall is bought for a specific use. Initially you may just be buying it for an upcoming holiday or trip away, without too much thought given to what you may use it for in the long run. Alternatively, you may travel away frequently on business, meaning you need a bag you can rely on to see you through all the hotels and long journeys you travel on. At the same time if your personal or business trip is short term, you want a bag that fits that need, rather than one that weighs you down on your travels.
The Elpaso Overnight Bag is designed with those short, overnight stays in mind. This will allow you to keep all your essentials together in one secure place in a bag that won’t feel like you are carrying half of your wardrobe with you! Its compact size also helps you to be more economical on what you decide to bring along, so you can pick out only the things you need, rather than trying to squeeze in items that you later discover didn’t need to be there at all. If it’s small and light you are looking for, then this is the bag for you!
Always Look the Part
Of course, you want a holdall that looks as smart as you do every single day. Functionality is important of course but that should never mean you have to compromise on style. You want a bag that you are proud to show off to other people and carry with confidence through the airport and hotel, rather moving in a hurry, afraid that you might be spotted holding an embarrassment in your hands! Like any item of clothing or accessory, striking the right balance is key, as you don’t want to buy something that is too elaborate or will quickly become dated and collect mothballs at the bottom of your cupboard.
If you want a classic style with that added edge of panache, then look no further than our Elpaso Duffle Holdall. As far as ladies leather holdall’s go, this is really the crème of the crop. This bag is great not only for holidays planned on short notice but to accompany you to any important business trip around the world. You can just as easily slip it over your shoulder, as you can carry it along in your hand. Made from beautiful ultra-thick hide leather, this bag screams style and elegance wherever you are heading off to.
All The Space You Could Wish For
It almost goes without saying that space is one of the most important things to think about. No matter how big the bag it always seems like you’re pressed for room and trying to squeeze everything in. Shoes can often be the trickiest item to pack, as the last thing you want when you take them out on arrival is to find the leather has been squashed and marked. This isn’t so bad when it is only a pair of trainers you have packed away to use at the hotel gym but for any formal evening wear it’s far from ideal.
The Trent Gladstone Holdall leaves no room for any doubt when it comes to space. As part of the Trent range, the Roughewn Leather is as eye-catching as it is durable. Lined with beautiful purple Jacquard fabric, the unique characteristics of the grained leather make it a holdall that stands out from the rest. You won’t have to worry about folding your clothes into the smallest bundles imaginable, as there is ample room available to keep everything packed away neatly. With zipped pouches found on the inside and outside of the bag, you can keep your make-up bag and toiletries separate from the main luggage too.
Taking Care of Your New Leather Holdall
Before you know it, your ladies leather holdall becomes one of the most reliable parts of your accessory wardrobe. While it will last for as long as you need it to, it will occasionally need a helping hand to keep it looking fresh and clean. Like everything else, a bag will pick up marks and scratches that comes with every day or even occasional use. We can throw our clothes into the washing machine when needed but the same can’t be said for a leather holdall, but not everyone is clear on the best way to maintain the bag.
The Patina of the bag is a much sought after look but that doesn’t mean you shouldn’t take care of it too. So, the first tip would be, don’t put it into the washing machine! There is no need to explain the reasons why, as we’re sure you wouldn’t dream of doing such a thing! A leather cleansing product is the best option to buy. Think of it as a moisturiser for the bag and the leather as skin (which, don’t forget, it is) and apply to keep the material looking energised. And don’t forget the zips, buckles and any other brass fittings that are on the holdall – bring these back to life with a well-deserved polish.
As you can see, there is a lot more that goes into buying the right leather holdall than meets the eye. Most of these checks you probably take into consideration without even thinking too much about it but it’s always helpful to have a reminder to hand.
