Leather Accessories – An integral generational wealth

It’s a quiet and slow Sunday morning. You have decided to stay in, bask in the mundaneness, snuggle up in that fresh new silk quilt that your bed adorns, with your iPad for some doom scrolling. While you’re scrolling through social media, checking out the latest collection from your favourite brands & designers or just catching up on some reading when you abruptly stop your scrolling. A certain something catches your attention, and you can’t help but explore what charmed you a few seconds back, the world of fine leather.

You are engulfed by a pleasant and familiar memory of your loved ones from previous generations exuberantly talking about leather and it suddenly hits you, how you wish to own classics like these and flaunt them to your next generation in the years to come. It instantly brings a smile to your face, and you pause for a few moments to admire it while the Sunday inertia leaves you and an unparalleled enthusiasm to leather up your wardrobe takes over, right from transforming your phone case to your wardrobe.

For decades now, leather has been touted as a token of luxury. From gracing the runways, to Christmas parties, business meetings to Royal weddings and more, leather has been an integral part of occasions when you’re wearing your best attire and looking dapper. Every time you stepped out with that leather briefcase, shiny & polished leather shoes or a suave leather phone case that just stood out with a personality of its own, you attracted numerous eyeballs that stopped just for a quick look of admiration and awe. While many fabrics have made its way in our lives, fashion and trends keep changing every season, even today, leather has endured all the eras and withheld its position and demand.

Natural Origins

Right from the evolution of mankind, leather has been an important survival aid. Largely due to its versatility and comfort, the use of leather started increasing. Humans could use leather for making shoes, clothes, tents, saddles, and a lot more. Gradually, as technology and mankind both evolved with cheaper alternatives, it became a cherished and prestigious accessory to own. As leather largely comes from recycled animal skin, it comes from natural origins and also makes a huge contribution towards sustainable consumption.

Impeccable Craftsmanship

Leather is a solid example of meticulous and exemplary craftsmanship & quality. The entire process of tanning and treating animal hides, the thread work, and the end-to-end production process is a skill to admire. It is a true blend of style, form, and functionality. While the technology has recently made this process easier, in the earlier days, it took an army of skilled artisans to deliver the final leather product. Hence, leather can be a great heirloom piece to pass on to the next generation.

Versatility that Spans Across Generations 

Be it leather jackets, belts, wallets, or boots, it has been perceived as stylish and cool by many generations and hence worn on the most precious occasions. It has seamlessly transcended trends and generations and made its way into our wardrobes. What is even more appealing is how versatile leather is and the forms and number of ways in which it can be molded. You can make accessories like shoes, wallets, belts, handbags, clothes, furniture, and a lot more. Thus, it becomes a great gift to pass on to your next generation.

Durable and Long lasting

The meticulous and intricate process of making leather makes it a durable and long-lasting material. Unlike other materials, it doesn’t lose its sheen and appeal with time. On the contrary, it just gets enhanced and looks even better as it ages. Further, it is quite averse to external disturbances and doesn’t get spoilt easily. It is scratch-resistant and water-resistant. As it ages, a unique patina is formed, and hence leather gains more character and charm. Thus, it lasts for decades and hence becomes a piece of legacy that you can pass on to the next generation.

While fast fashion rules today’s fashion demand, there is still a genuine affinity for leather among people who love niche fabrics and timeless classics. It is easy to maintain and take care of leather and it makes for a great style statement. Wherever you go, it easily attracts eyeballs. From effortlessly adapting to today’s trends and styles to aging with grace, leather is a great investment to make and adorn your wardrobe and thereby pass it to succeeding generations.
