The Benefits of Full Grain Leather

Dear all readers

Amongst you all, is there anyone who love to collecting leather bag like i do?

Leather bag, especially Genuine leather bag, is always my favorite. There are many high end to middle end international brands that sells leather bag, such as Louis Vuitton, Balenciaga, Givenchy, Fossil etc. There are also many local brands here in Indonesia that sells leather bag. But, do you know that leather bags also have different leather types? Some of leather types are Full Grain Leathers and Top Grain Leathers And also Synthetic Leather.

Full Grain leathers generally come from a better quality hide or skin and it is widely regarded as the highest quality of leather. It is also notorious for its beautiful, natural grain that displays the most character of all leathers. It is also known for its durability and quality.  Additionally, since the grain is so tight, it resists moisture very well. And therefore lesser maintenance requirements Over time, full-grain leather will look nicer and nicer and develop a patina from being handled.

The next best—and second strongest—leather is called "top-grain" leather. Top grain leather is similar to full-grain leather, except that the top couple millimeters have been sanded and buffed to take away imperfections. With the top layer removed, the leather will have a more uniform finish, but it won't be as durable—and it will break down much faster. 

While synthetic leather bag is artificial (man-made) leather. It has a leather-like surface and is dyed and treated to make it look and feel like real leather. And the price is also less expensive. And also this kind of leather is very easy to breakdown and non durable. That is why, most of the time i avoid buying synthetic leather bag.

And knowing that the price is slightly expensive, then why i choose to buy Full Grain Leather bag? It's because i'm a bag fetish. I am collecting bags, and of course i don't want my bag breakdown fast. Because i always want to pass down my bag collections to my future daughter or grand daughter someday :). 

So how about you? which one would you prefer? Full grain leather bag or Synthetic leather bag? and why?.
