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.
Leather briefcases have a long tradition. From the small ones to the pilot’s case, there are infinite varieties. Like the satchel, they are mostly made from robust cow leather but soft goatskin is also used.
