  • 44 Uses for Leather Backpacks

Hands down, leather is one of the most versatile materials on the planet. There is no other natural textile that is fashionable, functional and long-lasting.

Think about it. Look around you at all the items that are made of leather. If you’re like most people, you’ll likely notice for the first time just how much leather you own and rely on each day. Belts, watch straps, shoes, shoelaces, backpacks, purses, baseball gloves, basketballs, book covers, iPhone cases, wallets and so many other things around you were all crafted from leather.

Leather is a material people seek out with intention. It’s strong. It withstands the elements. It’s meant to last.

Leather backpacks are not only trendy these days, but also a functional tool that have many more uses than the average dime store canvas backpack you replace each year.
