Gifts that will appeal to everyone on your holiday shopping list are few and far between. But genuine leather goods are a tried-and-true staple that your mom, grandparent, significant other, brother, or boss will all love in equal measure. From leather handbags and wallets to laptop cases, briefs, and travel kits, leather goods are incredibly versatile — there’s a little something to suit every style, personality, and lifestyle.
At Latico Leathers, all of our pieces are crafted from 100% genuine leather and handmade with love by talented artisans throughout South America and India. Our leathers are byproducts of the food industry that would otherwise go to waste, and we never use any dangerous chemicals, oils, or synthetic materials like polyurethane when crafting our bags.
After three decades of working with leather, we've mastered the art of creating unique, heirloom-quality pieces that only ripen with age. We hand-select each hide and use a unique blend of natural dyes to maintain the character and integrity of each leather. From there, we soak and rinse each hide to reveal the natural characteristics and grain of each piece. Next, we tumble dry each piece to carefully soften the exterior and achieve that smooth, buttery-soft finish.
Every Latico handbag, wallet, duffel bag, and heritage backpack is a gift of family tradition, fine craftsmanship, and timeless style. If you’re stumped on what to gift this holiday season, genuine leather goods are always a homerun. Ahead, read up on the many benefits of leather before making your purchase.
