One of the most important factors to consider when purchasing a laptop bag is the material it’s made from. Some fabrics, like nylon may be too casual for your workplace, but higher end materials, like leather or suede, are more expensive and can be difficult to care for and clean. If you are looking for a sophisticated bag that’s also low maintenance and fun, you might want to consider faux leather. The word “faux” generally has a negative connotation, but in the fashion world it can be a good thing. There are a lot of reasons women prefer bags not made out of genuine leather; some don’t want to worry about it wet or stained while others prefer to be a little more animal-friendly. Whatever your reason is, faux leather is a great alternative and comes in a variety of patterns and colors you might not find in genuine leather bags. Check out the top 5 faux leather bags; you might be surprised at all they have to offer!
This is great bag for a professional woman who likes to walk on the wild side every once in a while! The interior is very practical, with a padded laptop compartment for a 17 inch laptop, several pockets for smaller essentials, a larger open space for clothes and toiletries, and a back pocket that perfectly fits an iPad or tablet. The thing that really sets this bag apart, however, is the edgy, teal, crocodile print exterior. It may look like real crocodile skin, but it’s actually a vegan leather made from all mad-made materials, so don’t worry, no reptiles were harmed in the making of this bag!
Cabrelli is one of our most popular brands on Career Bags and for a good reason. They are famous for making unique, stylish, rolling laptop bags at an affordable price point. A lot of their bags, like this one, look like real leather but are actually completely man-made. This bag features a simple, mod, color block print that will go with almost any outfit. Inside it has a padded laptop compartment for a 15.6 inch computer, three pockets for smaller essentials, and a large open space for clothes or toiletries!
This versatile bag can be used for a number of functions. It was designed to be a camera bag, but with a removable, adjustable interior basket, it can be used as an iPad or tablet bag or just an everyday tote! Apart from the interior basket, this bag also features two zipper pockets, two open front pockets, a top flap zippered pocket, and a back compartment that holds your credit cards and license! The Songbird bag, along with all of Kelly Moore’s designs, is made out of a synthetic leather that is lightweight, water and stain proof!
Suede is one of the most beautiful materials to own, but it’s also notoriously difficult to maintain and clean. If it gets wet or stained, the texture of the suede can become hard or crunchy, definitely not ideal for an expensive bag! This laptop bag from Coakley uses micro-fabrics to provide a luxurious feel without using animal products. This portfolio has the organization of a briefcase, the protection of a laptop bag, and the space of a classic tote, making it a great option for business travel! It even has a back tunnel pocket that unzips and slides over the handle of your rolling suitcase.
Leathers come in all different types, with different patterns from different animals. What I love about this bag is the use of vegan leather to recreate the beautiful textures of the actual animal hides. This bag features crocodile, ostrich, and python-like faux leathers that look like the real thing! If this bag was made of the genuine leather, it would probably cost several hundred dollars, but instead it’s just $149.99. Perhaps the biggest benefit of choosing a faux leather material is the ability to get a luxurious looking bag for a price that fits every budget!
