Pakistan is one of the known producers of leather. Many saddle makers were making top-quality saddles pre-partition, a skill that led to the making of other products. Over time leather from Pakistan hs been exported, as are finished leather products. The leather is generally of good quality.
Given we are producing such quantities of the raw product many brands produce various products, from leather jackets to key chains. Among the many products that are commonly produced, is various iterations of a bag. A regularly used item which is why many different sizes and designs are available, it is seen as an accessory to fashion aside from the functional use.
