When we talk about bags and purses to carry, the preferred material is leather. Going for a leather bag never goes wrong, but have you ever thought what happens when the leather used in the bag’s production is of low quality? Let me tell you, it will end being in a dustbin within a month or so. Plus, they impose great destruction and harm to nature as well.
So what to do? How will you decide whether the leather bag you are purchasing is of high quality or not. I would suggest getting your hands on handcrafted leather bags.
Why handcrafted leather bags?
The reason I recommended handcrafted leather bags is because of its making process. Expert professionals make them with their hands and a lot of work is done to make it last longer. Plus they use the finest leather available and focus on sustainability.
Also, as they are made keeping in mind the life long use, the design is mostly timeless. So you don’t even have to worry about not being in fashion after a while. The design you will get is going to stay there like forever.
When we talk about the handcrafted leather bags, few brands have made a recognizable reputation, one such brand is Escapade. You might think I am being biased about it, but I have personally used the bag, and trust me not even the biggest brands make up to its quality. Let’s have a look at the history and main aim of the brand.
What are Escapade Bags Famous for?
Escapade is a Spain-based brand, started by a couple – Carlos Tirado and Kenia Martinez. The brand and its design reflect the desire of a couple to see the world from the first-hand view. The company gained its existence in the year 2017 when husband and wife started making handcrafted bags for their family and friends.
When they knew this was a success and people really liked what they were making, they decided to move on to the next step – taking the Escapade to one level up. They have collaborated with skilled artisans around Spain and manufacture classic, timeless, and modern bag designs both for men and women.
They focus on the sustainability factor and hence every design is made in small production. Artisans make 90% of the bags, and there are very rare chances of 10% manufactured on the machine.
The high quality and durable skin and hides are the by-products of the meat and dairy industry. The buckles and other hardware is of brass or Zamak (according to the requirement). So basically, you are getting the best of the leather bag. You will find backpacks made of suede, top and full-grain leather, nubuck, vegetable-tanned leather, and other good-for-nature materials.
