Whoa, gorgeous leather bags ahead! Be sure to subscribe for the latest so you don’t miss a blog update.
When bride-to-be, Alyssa, wrote us about handmade leather bags we knew it deserved a HUGE blog feature. Although we’ve talked about bridesmaid clutches and at length, leather bags need their very own category, as there is a stunning variety of styles and styles from which to choose.
Alyssa wrote us about giving bridesmaids leather bags as gifts, but she needed help finding just the right ones. She writes,
“Hi Emmaline Bride! I was browsing for bags and clutches to give as gifts to my bridesmaids. I really like leather but I have no idea what kind to pick. I know you focus on handmade and I want to buy quality bags. Do you know where to get handmade leather bags for my bridesmaids, and what styles do you recommend? I don’t have a huge budget but if the bags are a good enough quality I think I can make it work. Thanks!”
Great question, Alyssa, and thanks for writing! Leather bags make amazing gifts for bridesmaids; if you get a genuine leather bag, the quality keeps getting better and better over time… so, money well-spent.
If genuine leather bags aren’t in your budget, keeping within your budget parameters is a good idea. There are plenty of faux leather bags your bridesmaids will love at a more affordable price. To show you what we mean, we’ve rounded up twenty-five handmade leather bags (yes, we do love handmade here!), all of which would make excellent gifts for anyone on your list.
Many of these bags include personalization for an extra-special gift. You’ll find other leather bags listed below have colorful fabrics, fun patterned liners, tassels, and so much more to make them unique gifts for giving to your bridal party.
Some of these picks are genuine leather, while others are faux and made of vegan leather that looks and feels similar to the real thing. We’ve included leather tote bags, crossbody bags, leather clutches, makeup bags, and more in this collection to offer you a large variety.
