When it comes to handbags, women have a tendency to switch them out quite frequently. Either because they wear out due to cheap material or craftsmanship, they don’t match their wardrobe or the season, or because they’re simply bored and want something a little different. Whatever the case, this process can end up costing the individual thousands of dollars over a lifetime. In fact, according to a recent study, the average woman will go through 145 handbags in her lifetime!
The easiest thing you can do to avoid this cash-sucking dilemma is to find the style you like and make sure the material and craftsmanship are of a high grade. Luckily with Saddleback bags, you don’t have to sacrifice on either.
Recently we had the opportunity to test out a couple of their products. When we received the Simple Tote from their Love 41 line and the Big Leather Wallet, we were more than impressed. Made of 100% full-grain leather—we had no reason to be suspicious of quality. Best part? 100% of proceeds from the Simple Tote go to helping people in Africa with education, job training, and food.
Both the wallet and the tote we received were gorgeous and offered a lot of room for everything you may need to carry around. The bag, in particular, could also be used for a lot of different uses—making it the perfect “lifetime bag” for any woman. Here a few ways you could use this bag:
The Everyday Bag
The first and most obvious way of using it is for your everyday bag. The leather straps are comfortable and bend easily—unlike some of the stiffer leather materials on the market. It is large enough to fit even the biggest of laptops, including cords. It also could easily fit a change of clothes for those after work workout sessions.
A Diaper Bag
One of the downfalls of most diaper bags is well, they look like diaper bags. Just because you become a parent doesn’t mean you have to sacrifice on style! Just like the Everyday Bag, you know it has a lot of room for all your parenting essentials, including diapers, multiple changes of “little clothes,” wipes, and your other personal belongings. Best part, if it gets dirty you can easily wipe it clean and follow these leather-care tips to bring it back to its original luster.
Big enough to fit a towel, sandals, sunblock, and your favorite swimsuit, you know you’ll be carrying a durable bag that can stand the sun and sand. Again, if you find it gets stained in any way, just follow these quick tips for full leather restoration!
Honestly, I could go on for days on the uses for this bag, but I’ll just stop here and say, “It can be used for anything.” A storage container, a book bag for your fashion-conscious student, or an airplane carry-on—the sky’s the limit.
Here is a quick video showing you all this tote can hold!
Want to complete the look? Add the Big Leather Wallet and you’ll have a matching set you can cherish for a lifetime.
