I choose because its style and strength. me, leather usually keeps its quality in time as well. Leather is resistant to dry abrasion, can be resistant to fire (if treated for it), and it is partly waterproof. Unlike other materials, leather is also resistant to dust mites and fungal attacks. Leather is also lint and dust-free, which means that it will look and feel just as great even if you don’t treat it in a special way. We would recommend that you get leather travel bags as well, as when you travel you need to have sturdy things in which you place your belongings. The last thing you want is your weekender bag to break when you are running to catch a bus.
I also choose leather because leather breathes. This might sound like a vague argument, but leather is a fabric that breathes well. Imagine what would happen if you seal a room and leave it like that for a year. You would end up having a room full with fungus, bad, if not breathable air, the things in it would get either too moist or too dry and everything would be out of place. I have collection of rubber bags and the fungus can easily trapped in the bag. - Dania Inga Berlin
