Why Choose a Leather Backpack?

Leather backpacks are suitable for everyone, from children to adults. Leather backpacks are convenient for any occasion due to them being both functional and stylish at the same time. Developments in the backpack's design have made sure that it meets all demands, from students and office workers to gym enthusiasts and hikers.

Monogrammed Backpacks as a Gift

Monogrammed Backpacks are one of the best gifts you can give someone. It really shows how much effort and thought you’ve put into their gift and how much they mean to you.

Von Baer leather backpacks are made from premium full grain leather and YKK zips. The monogramming does not affect the quality of the bag or the vibrant colors.

History Of Monogramming

Using initials in representing your brand is an idea that’s as old as time. During the medieval times, kings and queens monogrammed their coins to represent wealth, power and prosperity. Monogramming with three initials became popular in the 18th century when it became a way for ordinary people to personalize their possessions.

You’d find monogrammed handkerchiefs or napkins. In the commercial field, monogramming is made by the company’s logo as a way of marking identity and making the product recognizable.

So just by looking at the product, you’d know who it belongs to. Monogramming also makes it easier to identify your possession when mixed up with similar items.

What are leather backpacks?

Leather backpacks are the best travel companion if you want to stand out and catch the attention of everyone you meet. You will not find a full-size safari leather backpack, but for a 1- or 2-day trip, a leather backpack in perfect.

When buying a leather backpack, don’t only focus on its appearance. You need to check other factors, like the fact that it can fit all your stuff (Books, laptops…etc). It might also be useful for the backpack to be able to fit beneath your seat on an airplane.

What Makes a Leather Backpack Durable?

We’ve spent years and years developing and designing leather backpacks to perfect it to where it is now. You’ll notice all the effort that was placed in this development. I’ve had my share experience in poor quality backpacks that ripped before I even went past security at the airport.

You might think that you don’t really need a high-quality backpack for your next destination or trip but eventually you’ll be happy that you decided to invest in a durable leather backpack.

No material can endure more than leather when it comes to bags, so your next leather backpack might as well be the last bag you ever buy.

Men's Leather Backpack, what to look for?

Is this your first time buying a leather backpack? Then this part is for you. First, you need to know a couple of things about leather in general. There are 3 types of real leather available in the market: genuine leather, top grain leather and full grain leather.

Full grain leather is the best and most expensive one because it has higher quality and a premium feel.

It’s important to know which type of leather you want. Every type has its pros and cons. For example, although full grain has the best quality, it tends to be expensive so it is not for everyone. If you’re looking for a cheaper leather backpack, then you should get the genuine leather that costs less and is still good quality.

Finding the perfect size is essential when choosing a leather backpack. You need to find a size that is not too heavy, but has enough room to fit your belongings. Try to balance between comfort and functionality.

Don’t go for one and discard the other. And of course, we’ll be glad to assist you in any way!
