Leather- For any leather satchel or toiletry bag you're considering, make sure it is made with full grain leather. It's important because not all leather still has the grain on it. If it doesn't, your leather toiletry bag will look dumpy and fall apart before it's time. You see, every leather hide comes with the top layer of all grain. Those are the resistant and tightly woven fibers that protect the cow naturally. But all hides come thick, so tanneries split the hidein half, the top from the bottom. Now they have an expensive and a cheap hide to sell. One with strong enduring grain and one cheap low quality hide that is only good to be used for decoration or on parts of leather bags that don't get stress. If you wonder why one leather toiletry bag or leather satchel is more expensive than another, it's mainly for this reason.
Lining- We lined it with tough and smooth pigskin so you can wipe out spills easily. And it's not just good looking, it's actually stronger than the cowskin. Together with the full grain leather, it's a leather toiletry bag to hand down for a few generations to use.
Zippers- Of all of the zippers that we could have chosen to match the quality of the leather, we chose this buttery smooh and expensive zipper from Spain. You may find yourself sitting there zipping and unzipping your leather toiletry bag while you watch movies just because it is so strangely satisfyingly.
This leather satchel is great for travel and will fit all your essential make-up or toiletry items and keep them secure during transport. It has an outside pocket on the front and a flat pocket inside. It comes with a wristlet strap as well as a crossbody strap.
