Leather Bags For College Students

Table of Contents

    It is always important, and often tricky, to find a bag that is perfect for college – something that won’t need to be replaced within a couple of weeks, something that is stylish and in keeping with your taste, and something that can keep up with busy college days where you need to fit everything you need in one bag. Another important factor to consider is the price - when you’re spending so much time studying, you can’t always afford to break the bank and buy an expensive bag to meet all of your needs; that’s why, at MAHI Leather, we make each bag to order and ship them directly from our workshop, saving our customers up to 50%. This also means we are able to reduce waste and our carbon footprint, yay for the environment! 

    Why Leather?

    When it comes to choosing a bag that’s going to stand the test of time (and college) leather is your best bet. Leather is renowned for its strength, resilience, and durability. With the right amount of care and reasonable use, leather can last not only for years but also decades. It’s also a timeless and classic material, which never goes out of style. At MAHI, we use the best quality leather, which is vegetable dyed full grain leather

    We have a beautiful range of bags in different styles, so there’s sure to be something perfect for you. From cool backpacks to cute tote bags, with a range of satchels, messenger, and accessories in between, we’ve got you covered for college



    Backpacks are great for comfort, practicality, and style – having the bag on your back evenly distributes the weight across both shoulders which means there’s less chance of getting back & shoulder pains, as opposed to tote bags or cross the body bags which put the strain of carrying on one side of the body.

    MAHI backpacks provide plenty of room for students who need a bag that will hold their college books, and have plenty of small compartments for stationery, but will still be compact enough to avoid being bulky and awkward to carry. Our Classic Unisex Leather Backpack is sleek and simple and has a 17L capacity with added small internal compartments, internal and external zip pockets.

    For college students looking for something a little more stylish, and a little less like the simple, classic design, we also have two beautiful alternatives: The Roma & The Explorer Backpacks.

    The Roma Backpack in Vintage Brown


    Tote Bags

    Leather totes are the perfect solution when looking for something that is strong & functional but also cute & stylish.

    Our Classic Buffalo Tote is compact and sleek but also has a comfortable amount of space to fit an A4 notepad and 15” laptop. Choose from Tan, Croc or Ebony Black buffalo leather.


    Our Dixie Boho Tote is a more casual and relaxed design, but no less practical, perfect for everyday essentials with a cross over body strap to keep your hands free on busy college days.

    Satchels & Messengers

    During the 50’s and 60’s, satchels became an iconic accessory for British students and that same vintage style inspires our unisex collection of stylish leather satchels for both men and women. Perfect for carrying around work, books or documents, the smart and sophisticated design of the satchel is timeless and the extendable cross over body strap also helps to keep your busy hands free. Plus, Indiana Jones has one!

    With a nod to the college students, we have named some of our satchels after famed universities. In our collection, we have The Harvard, The Yale Clip-Up, and The Oxford Zip- Up.

    The Harvard & The Yale Clip-Up


    The Oxford Zip-Up in Ebony Black


    The Harvard features three external, secure pockets as well as an external zip pocket on the back, giving you space for your small essentials, and saving room in the bag for files, books and even a 15” laptop.

    The Yale Clip-Up has a professional and smart design with a click buckle fastening to the main compartment.


    The practical and simple Oxford Zip-Up has 5 internal pockets/segments for small belongings and files.

    Leather Accessories for College

    You may just want something to protect your laptop or tablet while carrying it college, or you want to be sure that your laptop has some extra protection whilst in your bag. You might want to invest in a smart sleeve made to order from full grain leather to fit your device.  

    Give yourself some peace of mind and protect your laptop or tablet stylishly with our Stockholm or Oslo sleeves

    All MAHI products can be personalized with your initials to make your bag that bit more personal and unique.
