Megs recently posted about her love of card cases and it really sparked my desire to purchase a new SLG. If you’re new to the purse world and not sure what SLG means, it stands for small leather good. You may assume that means card cases and wallets, but the SLG category actually includes a selection way beyond that. Passport holders, phone cases, pouches, cosmetic cases, and even wallet on chains or small crossbody bags are part of the small leather goods category.
Purchasing a small leather good can be an inexpensive way to purchase an item from a luxury brand. I recently posted about my desire to buy a Birkin bag and I plan on purchasing my first Hermès SLG this fall to acquaint myself with the brand. I am currently eyeing the Carre Pocket Pouch, and truthfully it's become a borderline obsession for me. Price points are typically lower for small leather goods and it can be a great way to familiarize yourself with the quality of a brand before purchasing a handbag.
I’ve spent more time than I would like to admit browsing the SLG selections from a few of my favorite premier brands over the last few weeks and I've established quite the wishlist. Despite my lifelong love of handbags, I am very new to the world of SLGs...in fact, I don’t even own a luxury wallet. I’m ready to dive right in and buy one or two SLGs to fill the void in my collection.
What’s your favorite SLG? I’d love for you to share in the comments below so I can check it out!
