Latico Leathers is proud of be a family-owned company. Since 1984, Latico has been committed to providing high-quality leather handbags. Each piece embodies a bohemian aesthetic, breezy attitude, and independent spirit. We’re passionate about environmental sustainability and giving back — our leathers are byproducts of the meat and dairy industry that would otherwise go to waste.
We've started by designing our handbags with the best materials we could find, which includes our signature buttery-soft leather. Trust us, it's pretty dreamy!
Latico uses 100% full-grain handcrafted leather, which is durable and will last a lifetime. Our bags are also handcrafted, giving each style a unique, custom look that's put together with care.
But what is full grain leather? There's so many different materials, textures, and technical jargon among leather that it can get confusing to figure out what is what, especially when it comes to leather grades. How do you know where to invest and where to skip out?
In general, there are four types of leather grades: full grain, (the highest quality and what Latico uses in our all bags), top grain, genuine and suede. Read on to learn more about each.
