Leather handbags are more durable than other types of materials, which makes them great for traveling. They may be a little heavier, but they will outlast any other type of materials on the market.

A leather handbag is an investment that will last you years.

Below are some of the best leather handbag brands we think you should consider shopping from.

Best Leather Handbag Brands for Traveling

#1 Portland Leather Goods

Portland Leather Crossbody Tote review

Portland Leather Goods (commonly referred to as PLG) is a sustainable and affordable leather goods brand for men and women. 

They have a bit of a cult following and I know some people who own more than one (sometimes upwards of 10!) PLG bags. If you’re familiar with Rothy’s sustainable footwear, PLG is their leather handbag equivalent.

We love their leather backpacks, waist bags, big and small totes, and circle crossbody bags.

The Sak offers handbags, small leather goods, backpacks, home goods, footwear and more. They also make woven handbags from recycled materials. Their bags are great for traveling and beyond. 

Right now, our bag on rotation is the Mariposa shoulder bag.

#4 Viscata

Viscata is a Barcelona-based footwear and handbag brand. They offer very flattering shoes and bags that are sustainably hand-crafted by Spanish artisans.

Their handbags are made from, sustainably sourced leather or with canvas and leather trim.

You should also check out their resale program where you can buy deeply discounted and gently used Viscata products, which ensures that their products never enter landfills. We always love a closed-loop supply chain!

#5 Wildwood Oyster Co.

Their crossbody totes are to DIE for. They’re made of leather, rope, and metal, all sustainable materials. And their chevron design is definitely eye-catching.

#7 KMM & Co.

KMM & Co. is another leather brand that offers a variety of handbags and leather goods. Kyle Martin wanted to offer heirloom quality goods that would last a lifetime, and that’s exactly what he did.

#8 Go Forth Goods

Go Forth Goods sells sustainably made leather goods for men and women.

We love their Celeste hobo bag because it can also be worn as a crossbody bag.
