Leather bags - Leather backpacks
As long as leather has been used, it has been a vehicle for transporting objects. Originally, there were just simple leather bags. Today there is an infinite number of bag types from the leather handbag, which is the most widely used, to leather backpacks
Leather satchels have a long tradition. In the past, school bags were almost entirely made from leather. In the 1970s, colourful synthetic satchels came into fashion. There is still an attractive range of genuine leather bags. Leather satchels are usually made of firm, thick cow leather. The leather is vegetable-tanned. Historically, school satchels were inspired by soldiers' satchels.
The teacher's bag is traditionally made of leather and has been much less replaced by synthetic materials.
