In this article we check out what we believe to be the best leather suitcases, currently available on the UK market. With the advent of soft sided suitcases and hard shell cases, the leather case has pretty much fallen by the wayside. They do however still exist, and for some people, those are their number one preference.
The best leather suitcases now come in vintage styles, and there are a few of those to pick from. Leather suitcases are available in vintage brown, antique cherry etc and in many different types such as backpacks, duffel bags, hand luggage, check-in luggage and trolley cases. They are not as expensive as you may think, but you will pay more for the very high grades of leather.
Leather cases still remain a popular choice for briefcases, messenger bags, and indeed wallets, mobile phone cases etc. So leather is still available on the market, but not that popular for many luggage buyers, when it comes to buying a case.
