How to choose a leather bag

Table of Contents

    Finding the perfect leather bag can be a daunting prospect given the sheer choice of leather goods on the market today. With so many factors to take into consideration, from size, style and function to price, colour and finish, the options can be overwhelming. It is therefore essential that before making that all-important purchase, MAHI customers have a brief specification in mind to make shopping with us as unique and enjoyable as possible.


    First and foremost, a bag is there to offer its wearer a handy storage solution for when they're on the go. From our range of satchels, perfect for transporting laptops and books, to our traditional travel bags for all your essentials for a weekend away, MAHI's range of leather bags come in all shapes and sizes according to their intended use.

    Not only is the overall size of the bag a key consideration, but added features, such as detachable shoulder straps, convenient side pockets, hidden inner compartments or adjustable buckles for extra security also must be carefully considered. These features are especially important when choosing a leather bag for a specific purpose; for example, the MAHI Holdall makes the ideal gym bag due to its smaller pocket designed for valuables, whilst the MAHI satchel has the capacity to carry a laptop.


    The preferred size of a leather bag is wholly dependent on its intended use and personal preference. MAHI Leather’s Duffle, Weekender and Holdall are all spacious enough to act as an overnight bags or hand luggage, whereas the smaller Backpack and Messenger bag designs are convenient for those who like to travel lightly and keep the possessions they carry around with them to a minimum.

    In order to aid in the selection process, the dimensions of each MAHI Leather bag are clearly displayed so customers can get a clear understanding of their chosen design’s size before purchasing. This is particularly important when purchasing one of MAHI’s leather laptop sleeves, as they are specifically designed to fit devices with either a 13” or 15” screen.


    Traditionally, as one of the world's most sought-after textiles, leather has always commanded premium prices. Quality, finish and size are all influential factors in determining the price of any leather product. However, MAHI Leather prides itself on the fact that it offers its customers luxury leather at affordable prices.


    Owing to the quality of the leather MAHI sources to create its expertly crafted bags, customers can be safe in the knowledge that their accessory will endure, even with regular use. Of course, over time, the natural suppleness of the leather will develop a worn look, giving the leather an inimitable vintage look which never goes out of style.


    The style of any given bag is, of course, a very personal choice. Whilst the more traditional MAHI customer may prefer to opt for the classic MAHI Satchel, fashion-forward types might be more drawn to the trendy MAHI Backpack to complete their everyday style. Although MAHI Leather offers a range of styles to choose from, customers can be rest assured that all bags are designed with a focus on timeless elegance and rugged sophistication.

    Those who love to add a bit of personal flair to their accessories can also choose to really make their MAHI Leather bag their own by embossing their initials on the exterior.


    The simple, minimalist philosophy behind MAHI Leather’s designs guarantees that the quality and texture of the leather is always the main feature of the bag. With each item painstakingly crafted, every MAHI customer is guaranteed a unique product as no two cuts of leather are ever the same. As leather is an organic material, customers are encouraged to regularly care for their MAHI Leather bag by using a dry cloth to remove dust or alternatively, to invest in a specialist cleaning product for further protection.

    Every MAHI Leather bag is accented with subtle brass hardware and zips for an understated, yet eye-catching finish and all accessories are lined with a pure cotton interior.


    Owing to the quality of the leather MAHI sources and the excellent craftsmanship, each bag is designed to withhold regular use and stand up to everyday wear and tear. The sturdy 100% leather handles and detachable shoulder straps on some MAHI Leather styles ensure that the bags are durable and hard-wearing.


    MAHI Leather bags are available in a range of colours, allowing customers to express their originality and find an accessory that will complement their wardrobe. From classic neutrals such as polished black, sophisticated mahogany, traditional vintage brown and chic cognac to canvas/leather combination styles in vibrant shades of forest green, red and royal blue; there is sure to be a MAHI Leather bag to suit any taste.
