When it comes to style, few materials offer the same sense of consistency and attractiveness as leather. In fact, leather is one of the most primitive discoveries on earth which has managed to maintain relevance through many decades and centuries of evolution.
That being said, there has always been a use case for leather, and without doubt, this is one of the most purposeful materials known to civilization.
The Importance and Utility of Leather
Having initially served as protection from the elements, leather was a utility of sorts and provided a suitable base for buckets, bags, sandals, military wear and anything else you might associate with primitive times. However, this durable material also infiltrated the furniture industry with designers and manufacturers recognizing the sheer comfort of leather.
More recently, technology and innovation have enabled these creators and makers to establish far superior leathers with very attractive aesthetics and increased comfort. Indeed, we feel inspired by such a prestigious history and continue to create the finest leather goods which cater to the modern world.
From bi-fold wallets and duffle bags to iPad holders and Apple watch accessories; each of these products are unique in design yet they hold true to the very attractive and practical characteristics of this fine material. That is to say, customized leather goods have remained at the forefront of fashion but continued innovation and design have ensured this beautiful material is also a practical solution for busy people with busy lives. With this in mind, here are just a few of the most attractive leather accessories and tips which can help you keep your bag organized.
5 Straightforward steps to Keep Your Bag Organized
1. Removing Everything from the Bag
Firstly, remove everything from the bag and clean out any remnants in the bottom. At this point, you will likely notice receipts, tissues and other useless items which really should not be in there anymore. We are conditioned to horde, so this is perfectly normal, but then this is also your opportunity to get rid of any excess. Having removed the unwanted rubbish spread out the remaining items on a clear surface and get ready to give your bag a proper shakedown.
2. Sorting into Categories
At this point, you will likely notice that many of the contents of the bag are somewhat unnecessary for day to day use. In the case of it being a day bag, decide on essential items such as the house keys, cell phone, and your new leather wallet but then try to leave out the accessories you are unlikely to need on a daily basis. As for packing a travel bag, do you need two pairs of shoes or four shirts for a two-day trip? Make every effort to minimize the bulky items and try to condense items as much as possible. For example, a nice leather dopp kit can keep toiletries safe and compact.
3. Organizing the Wallet
Although this is usually inside your bag, there is just as much reason to organize the wallet itself. In fact, most people pay little attention to their wallet when in truth; a disorganized wallet is incredibly time-consuming. That is to say; when everything is so chaotic, you spend a lot less time searching for receipts, cards, change, and missing items.
As with the main bag, empty the wallet entirely and get rid of any old pieces of paper which are no longer needed. Once you know which items you would like to keep such as bank cards, insurance or a driving license, sort these cards into categories, so you know exactly where to find them in your leather wallet. Keep in mind; it may not be necessary to hold every type of card in this wallet as loyalty cards or gift cards are surely not needed on a daily basis.
It may sound little silly but when you initiate a habit to organize money according to the denomination, you are also committing to saving time when it comes to paying for items or checking how much cash you have to hand.
4. Using Accessories to Stay Organized
Pens, keys, and cell phones are some of the most common and useful necessities to carry in a bag. However, when you consider the amount of time one can spend searching for these items in the bottom of a bag, it should be obvious there is more you can do to stay organized. With this in mind, we created some genuinely attractive accessories to help our customers in staying organized such as our leather iPhone holder with card sleeve which keeps everything neatly organized in a beautiful protective covering. However, this practicality extends a lot further with many customers opting to get organized with our pen holder, key holder, and our beautiful leather chord holder.
5. Putting it all Back Together
Finally, you should now be ready to put everything back together again and place your organized items neatly in the bag. While staying organized is far from rocket science, the process is not always as easy as we would like it to be. With this in mind, making a conscious decision to get rid of useless or unnecessary items is undoubtedly beneficial and the first step toward staying organized.
At the same time, this is also an opportunity to stay relevant and customize your appearance with some of the most attractive, comfortable and practical material on the planet. After all, leather continues to stay relevant and modern in spite of how quickly everything else seems to be changing.
Furthermore, the durable and practical nature of our leather is designed to last a lifetime and what can be more appealing than these timeless products which add so much style and convenience on a daily basis?
In short, this shiny material is one of the oldest known to man, but while the creation process continues to evolve, one aspect remains the same – the sheer attractiveness and practical nature of leather.
