Sling bags became popular decades ago when people would wear them especially for travel. However, they failed to catch on with fashionistas then and eventually sank into oblivion. Over time, they became the stuff that your grandparents carried (obviously far from fashionable). At one point, they were even disparagingly referred to as ‘tote bags’ or ‘fanny packs’ and they dropped out of sight from the fashion point of view. Anyway, every bag has their day and so sling bags are back and trending, worn by the hoi polloi as well as celebrities and influencers. Everyone, it seems, has at least one sling bag in their closet, if not many more! Leather sling bags are a modern classic that are essential especially when travelling out of home, city or country. Great way to carry those precious documents—your visa and passports and all those dollars and euros. Strapped across your body bag in front of you, both the sling bag and the valuable cargo it contains, have less chance of being misplaced or stolen. Handmade sling bags are a cult classic that are being flaunted by the fashion conscious across the world. Sling bags make great office bags too, if you travel light to work. They give briefcases and leather backpacks quite the run for their money, in terms of being lightweight and compact. The leather tote bag works well for those who want to cram oodles and masses of stuff into their bags, bloating them up with extraneous odds and ends. No doubt useful, but if you don’t need to carry a zillion things then definitely a leather sling bag is the way to go. Our range of handmade sling bags handcrafted from pure, authentic fine quality leather features several timeless designs that you would be proud to flaunt!
A sling bag is a bit like the hands free kit that comes with your phone! You use your hands to navigate when you need to and then when you don’t it just goes back to being against your body, to be slung up across your shoulders! One of the biggest pluses that make leather sling bags such a preferred choice. Can you see yourself bicycling to work? Yippee, just get a sling bag. And pedal, hands free! Office bags may prove cumbersome, leather tote bags too large, leather clutch bags too small, leather backpacks too bulky and laptop bags too focussed on a single device only. Further, sling bags are also great at restricting all the odds and ends you can carry and making you edit what you need. Let’s face it… much of what we ferry all over, arms aching as a result, could very well be stored in the office itself, saving us the daily hassles of carrying masses of stuff around. A sling bag teaches you minimalism and we say, that’s a great lesson! And when the teacher is a handmade sling bag, handcrafted from pure, authentic topnotch quality leather, hey, that lesson pretty much becomes an offer you’re unlikely to refuse, as the mafia don said. Another bonus, no more aching arms! A sling bag distributes its weight across your shoulders and torso, so a lot less pressure per square inch. And this saves your arms from constantly having to bear the load of a bag loaded with all the things that accompany you across your daily grind. Especially as we know how much stuff women need to have access to at all times, and also how much they plan for sudden emergencies: yes, we know nail cutters and files are often among the small daily use objects that get tacked on!
