20 Leather Laptop Bags That Are Fashionable and Functional
Whether you're commuting to the office or a coffee shop, you need a work bag that can keep up and, most importantly, transport your laptop securely. Because our laptop bags often double as our everyday bags, we're all about investing in durable, chic, and high-quality fabrics, such as leather. Equipped with everything from exterior zip pockets that keep phones and house keys accessible to in-sleeve laptop compartments, these leather laptop bags double down on function and luxury — and include vegan-leather options, because sustainability is fashionable, too.
