Transport Your Laptop With The Best
Besides looking really stylish, a leather laptop bag adds a little more to protecting your computer. At least I feel that it does. Yes, the bags that are made of cloth have extra padding for protection but leather is usually thicker than most fabrics and adds its own little bit of cushion to help with possible shocks and scratches to your laptop.
A leather bag is going to cost a little more than one of a different material but it is going to last longer, too. Leather is not going to tear or wear as easily as other fabrics will, either.
I also feel that a bag made of leather makes a quiet little statement that you are doing pretty well financially and can afford to spend extra to protect your computer. That may not mean much to some but when you are a young professional or any age professional it gives the impression that your are serious about your work and have a successful attitude. It is one of those first impression sorts of things that without any words spoken delivers a good message about your demeanor. It may seem shallow but the way we dress and the accessories we carry with us do make a difference in the way we are perceived.
Oil Your Leather
Use mink oil or neatsfoot oil on a regular basis to keep your leather items supple. This practice also extends the life of the item in a most dramatic way. Basically, it replaces the natural oils that remained in the hide after the tanning process. Those oils have a tendency to dry up after a while.
When shopping for a leather laptop bag you will find that many of them will work for either gender. They have a general style that appeals to both sexes with features that suit different needs of individuals as they carry their computer, business supplies and accessories from home to work and any other places they need to transport their laptop with them.

Not all leather comes from cows although a lot of it does. You can find leather made from other animals, too. Deer and buffalo hides make a lovely leather when tanned and used for a laptop bag or any article of leather. Ostrich gives a really unique look to the leather and so does crocodile or alligator. They have a built in kind of design on them as well as snakeskin. Just make sure with the croc, gator or snake that it is genuine and not faux or fake man made material. Goats give a lovely soft leather that is often used in gloves but can also be found in bags, too.
My advice is to always read the description carefully. Real leather is going to say so. It will say genuine or real and most times let you know which animal the original hide came from. When it says man made leather it means it has been fabricated to look like leather but it is not the real deal.
You can choose a plain style of leather or you can also choose a leather that has been hand tooled. What the means is that the leather has been worked with a design with special tools and gives a unique look to the end product.
What is leather?
I think that most people assume that all leather is made from cattle and that is correct in a sense. A lot of the leather products that we find have been made from leather that was made from the hide and skin of cows. They are not the only animals that leather can be made from, though. There are many types of animals that have a hide or pelt that can be made into this supple material.
Common animals used around the world are:
- oxen and yaks
- alligators and crocodiles

What is used to tan leather?
The tanning of leather can be done using several different processes. The degree of suppleness needed for the end product most often determines what will be used to tan the hide with.
Vegetable-tanned means that tannin and other elements which comes from plants is used in the process. The end product will usually be a brown color and the degree of the brown will depend on what the original color the hide was. Leather that has been tanned this way will be pliable but can not withstand becoming wet. The color will turn darker where it was exposed to water and the material will shrink and become harder. Back in the days that armor was worn in battle, people would boil the leather to make it hard and more difficult to penetrate.
Salts of chromium are used to tan when the material is needed to be more supple than the vegetable tanned will produce. It is known as chrome-tanned.
The tanning process that is most often used to make leather for vehicles and shoes is done by using glutaraldehyde or oxazolidine compounds that are chrome free.
