Top trendy bags for summer - BenchBags

This week we’ve decided to make a list of the top trendy bags you’ll be seeing this summer. It was a much more difficult task than we had expected because there’s so much to choose from! After doing a bit of research we’ve come to the conclusion that among the many bags on the market this summer, tote bags, bucket bags and shoulder bags are the most featured. The colors that stand out this season are soft colors such as rose quartz and serenity (very light blue). As for fabric you’ll find canvas and raffia in many styles. La verdad es que nos ha resultado…

They are also responsible for many pieces of some of the world’s most important luxury brands. Hoy no voy a hablarte de nuestras talegas o nuestra colección de Marroquinería, no.

Hello to all! This week we’re going to talk about handcrafts, which I absolutely adore.  I find it a great way to disconnect and at the same time let my creativity wander.  Nowadays we’re so used to buying everything that we don’t stop to think that there are many things we can make ourselves.  So, I’m going to give you some ideas to recycle things you have lying around your house and turn them into a nice gift for someone special (even for yourself). Buenas de nuevo! Esta semana vengo con manualidades, que me encantan, no solo porque me parece…

How to make a leather bag - choosing the leather

Many people have asked us how to make a leather bag.  In this post we will explain what we believe is the most important point:  choosing the leather. The first thing you need to know is that our leather comes not only from Spain, but also from different parts of Europe, where we consider the tanning, care and manipulation are the best. We use calf skin, goat skin, sheep skin and exotic skins, such as crocodile, snake, lizard, etc. Did you know that python leather comes from snakes that are raised on farms? Una pregunta que nos hacéis mucho a…

Hello again everyone! We’ve decided to make our own version of What’s In My Bag.  As leather is our business, we want to show you how many leather articles you can carry in your bag and that never go out of style. It can also give you a clue for a gift you might be looking for. We’ll use our all-road Benchbag, The Talega, to demonstrate how many things it can carry that women need during the day.  To start out with, let’s check out some of the make-up we need to freshen up our look every few hours. ¡Hola a…
