We enjoy the moment when we spray on shaving cream, shave our neck slowly and elegantly, then dab our adored perfume on the side of our neck. Even when traveling, we carry our preferred grooming essentials in a toiletry bag for the special event.
Imagine that you are getting your clothes ready for the day in the hotel room. You smoothly open your toiletry bag, pull out the essentials you like, and when you shave gently, touching your fresh face, looking into the mirror, you’re getting the ultimate calming vibes, thinking that you’re going to be the focus of the day.
So, if you’re a person who enjoys the vibes when you are grooming, a stylish toiletry bag must be made for you to elevate your business or pleasure trips. Therefore, we have come up with some suggestions when choosing a stylish leather toiletry bag that can help you to not only store all your essential toiletries when traveling, but also let you savor the moment when you are grooming.
The Must-Have Features of a High-Quality Leather Toiletry Bag
The right size is crucial for toiletry bags. A good-sized wash bag can carry all your essentials with easy access for whatever you need while not being too large to fit into your duffle bag or luggage. A toiletry bag with snap buttons on both sides with expandable functions that offers extra spaces can accommodate a longer trip. 9-11 inches in length, 5-6 inches in height and 5-6 inches in width is the ideal size for a 3–14-day trip.
Zipper, Zip Tape and Zipper Pull
You need to open and close your toiletry bag every time you use it, so a high-quality zipper is of paramount of importance. A robust metal zipper that will not break easily and can last for years is a great choice. A well-constructed bag with strong stitches and a stitch line that is positioned away and symmetrical sewn from the zip tape seam can ensure that the zipper will not get stuck or hung up on the leather trim. A soft yet durable leather zipper pull can improve the comfort of zipping back and forth effortlessly and add a stylish finishing touch.
Quality and Temper of Leather
The quality of leather is at a high priority when it comes to choosing an aesthetic and functional leather toiletry bag. Full-grain, vegetable-tanned leather is definitely a good option. Never compromise on the quality of leather. Semi-soft, thicker leather is also a good choice because you can put into a duffle bag with ease and that still holds its shape when you take it out.
You don’t want to dig around to find items in your bag. A toiletry bag with multiple compartments is desirable for keeping things in place. 1-2 zipper compartments for storing smaller items, 1-2 larger open pocket to keep bigger objects, 1-2 small open pockets to store nail clippers or similar objects and with 1 visible & expandable large mesh pocket that allows you to stow items with maximum flexibility.
Interior Lining Material
A high-quality wash bag is nicely lined to prevent your essentials from getting scratches and enhance the durability of the bag. A bag with nylon or plastic lining may tear easily, and you don’t feel the same sense of luxury when you touch it. Suede and Nubuck are both high-quality lining materials. However, suede is a fibrous leather and therefore tends to shed lint during use over time. Nubuck is similar to suede but is created from the outer side of a hide with shorter fibers and a smoother surface than suede, giving it more strength and making it less prone to lint. Additionally, Nubuck is a buffed leather so that it retains slightly water-resistance properties and will return to its original color once it gets dry. Nubuck requires less maintenance than many other leathers due to its velvety surface and is just as easy to take care of.
What to Put Inside the Bag and how to organize it?
You need a good packing strategy. First, analyze your trip length. Secondly, you need to decide how frequently you will use each essential and how to organize each item into the correct pocket or compartment according to size, sharpness, and fragility. You might want to put the travel-size perfume tube and sharp objects like scissors, a razor or manicure tools in a zipped compartment. You can stow travel-scented candle, hair gel, or shaving cream in the mesh pocket. Last, but not least, your toothbrush, toothpaste, or comb can be stored in a long packet-pocket.
