Sustainable leather travel bags

At Billy Tannery, we believe in the importance of sustainability, and in opting for a responsibly made leather travel bag that will stand the test of time. Sustainability isn’t just about how pieces are sourced and created. It’s also about using your belongings to their full potential. Our handmade bags and accessories are purposely minimal in design, ensuring they never go out of style and compliment any outfit.

Here are our top four recommendations for the best unisex leather travel bags… 

The Gote

Billy Tannery Black Leather Tote Bag

Our version of the classic leather tote bag makes an ideal luxury travel bag. Crafted in
vegetable tanned leather, this understated yet super stylish bag is suitable for both men and women, and for work as well as your break away.

The Gote, a soft leather tote bag, features a short handle and a longer shoulder strap - which allows you to switch up how you wear your travel bag and distribute weight differently, depending on how much you’ve packed!

Its clean design, choice of three colour options and brass metalware combine to create a totally timeless look that will always be relevant in your wardrobe. The Gote is a travel bag that will never let you down.

And if you’re heading off straight from the office, the Gote is perfect - its padded laptop compartment will keep your computer safe from the perils of zips and buttons. Why not pair it with a large leather laptop pouch to add extra style to your travel bag ensemble? Contrasting tones, as well as matching leather, look great together.

The Roll Top Backpack

Billy Tannery Green Leather Roll Top Backpack

The leather 
Roll Top Backpack embodies what makes us unique here at Billy Tannery and is one of our most popular sustainable leather bags.

Carefully designed to the characteristics of our vegetable-tanned goat leather, this luxury travel bag showcases the natural grain pattern and takes full advantage of our leather’s lightweight nature.

This is our largest backpack; one that will most definitely accommodate all your travel necessities. Roll out the bag to its full size and you gain six litres of extra volume - perfect for filling with souvenirs and gifts for the family.

Even if you pack your Roll Top Backpack to the brim, the wide shoulder straps and padded back panel mean it’ll always be comfortable. Or use the handy top handles if you need to grab and go.

Backpacks sometimes have the reputation of being a little casual, but the Billy Tannery Roll Top is seriously stylish and smart while retaining an earthy and natural aesthetic with sustainably dyed full-grain leather.

And this isn’t a luxury leather rucksack without structure, as the Roll Top Backpack also features a padded laptop compartment for keeping your computer secure. It’s a leather backpack like no other.

The Zip Top Backpack

Billy Tannery Black Leather Zip Top Backpack

This stylish backpack is a slightly more compact version of the Roll Top - ideal if you’re more of a light packer.

The Zip Top Backpack is a real leather backpack with a twenty-litre volume and an easy-access design. It weighs less than the Roll Top and makes a great bag to take along with you on city breaks or weekend excursions.

No matter how many times you zip, fill, unzip, grab, zip and go, you can be confident that the Swiss-made copper zip will never fail. Plus, our subtle copper metalware blends beautifully with the vegetable-tanned goat leather, which only gets better with age. Billy Tannery luxury leather travel bags are crafted to be companions for life, with the developing patina changing as you take your bag on life’s adventures.

Both our leather backpacks are lined with heavyweight British cotton for a luxury feel and are available in three classic tones - chic black, natural brown and rich forest green.

If you are looking for the best men's leather work bag, The Zip Top Backpack is a fantastic contender, due to its smart size and clean lines. So, if you’re on the lookout for a luxury travel bag that doubles up as a day-to-day work bag, it’s a great option. Pair it with a leather cardholder for an extra polished look.

The Large Pouch

Ok, so we’ve highlighted three great options that will carry all your luggage for a weekend away. But if you’re searching for a bag that you can take out and about with you on adventures once you’ve checked into your hotel, our Large Pouch is ideal.

It’s a fantastic leather travel accessory even when on route to your destination. Keep your passport, Euros and tickets close to hand when at the airport or stow away your charger and an aux cable so that you can be designated car DJ when headed to your staycation bolthole.

Having recently had an update, it now comes with a detachable strap that turns it into a shoulder bag meaning you can carry it hands-free wherever you are. And being well padded, it’ll keep whatever is inside protected whether it’s your phone, bifold wallet, makeup compact or laptop.

Made from vegetable-tanned goat leather or deer leather, it comes in four timeless colours including black, tan and forest green and is finished with premium brass fittings and a Swiss-made brass zip.
