Press Release (ePRNews.com) - MAIDSTONE, England - Jul 12, 2016 - When you are considering to purchase a leather bag you have to be very careful. The market is filled with good-looking fake leather bags. The price of the fake leather bags is almost the same.
To make sure you are not paying the price of a real leather product on a crap product you must know the minimum guidelines.
If you are holding a leather bag in your hands and you are suspicious about it’s authenticity, don’t buy it.
There are two factors that are determining the quality of the real leather: the process of tanning and the hide selection. Tanning refers to the treating process of the animal skin, process that is making the leather more durable and not alterable of decomposition.
The hide selection is about how clean the leather is and the amount of natural marks on the hide.
A quality leather feels very soft and supple when you touch it. A leather like this will resist to the test of time.
It is important to think in perspective when buying a leather bag. Think that you will be harsh to it and you are not willing to pay a leather product price very often.
Don’t forget to touch the edges of the leather product. You have to expect a clean-finishing touch and look. A good quality bag usually have edges that were polished manually.
The zipper is a pointer about the quality of the leather bag. A low quality zipper usually indicates the general low quality of the product or even a fake leather product. Low quality zippers does not resist to the test of time and a heavy usage. A broken zipper means that you will not use that bag anymore. Also look at the zipper to be solid and to match the size of the the bag. At some point an overstuffed bag will force the zipper and it has to be resistant. The regular choice for a quality zipper is the brass. Usually it is covered in copper and nickel.
It is also good to know that a leather bag needs to be maintained. Apply regularly the leather conditioner. The dryness can affect the durability of the product. When the leather is wet you have to let it dry in a ventilated space.
