Another leather handbag, the S-ZONE Vintage Genuine Leather Tote Bag comes in three colors: black, light brown, and dark brown. This bag is made with cowhide crazy horse leather, which softens over time with use.
Features include a top zipper closure and a total of four internal and external pockets, perfect for holding all of your gadgets. With dimensions of 13.58inch (L) x 11.81inch (H) x 3.54inch (W), this tote bag can hold laptops up to 14 inches.
Users love the durability of the leather, including the strong straps. One male school bus driver describes how he can stuff it full of everything he needs for his daily trips, so we’re sure it will hold up for teachers as well!
Another bag from S-Zone is their Vintage Genuine Leather Shoulder Laptop Bag. This bag is specifically meant to hold a laptop up to 15.6 inches, as it contains a laptop sleeve, and is made with the same cowhide crazy horse leather as their other bags.
Features include a top zipper, multiple pockets inside and outside, and a convertible strap that can be used to make the bag a crossbody. In addition, the bag can be used as a carryon, as it includes a strap to attach it to the top of your suitcase for easy transport.l
Reviewers love how soft, yet strong it is. They describe loading the bag up with personal items, ipads, and lunch bags; it is big enough to hold everything and anything! Some reviewers caution that the dye in the leather can transfer to your clothing, but that can be prevented by wiping it with a towel before the first use.
Overall, the S-ZONE Vintage Genuine Leather Shoulder Laptop Bag seems like a practical and elegant bag for teachers.
The Overbrooke Large Vegan Leather Tote – Womens Slouchy Shoulder Bag with Open Top is the only drying rack on our list that looks more like a traditional pushcart that teachers might use to transport materials from classroom to classroom. It can be easily maneuvered with four wheels. The included sixteen shelves can effortlessly be removed so that you can place thicker pieces of art inside. The shelves can hold papers up to 18×24.
Users love how lightweight and easy to move around this cart is. One downside is that the cart must be put together before use, but that didn’t deter most users from enjoying this product.
The Kattee Genuine Leather Purse is a large capacity bag for the teacher on the go. It features an open top magnetic snap closure, two interior zip pockets, two open pockets, and two pen holders. It can hold a laptop of up to 15.6 inches.
Made from cowhide leather, the bag ages well and lasts a long time. Users rave about the value they got for the price (about $88). They say it looks professional and holds everything you can possibly imagine. Reviewers say they have received so many compliments about this bag!
The Lovevook Laptop Bag is a truly attractive bag that comes in twelve stylish colors, from classic brown to a girly pink. It is made with genuine leather, but is also water resistant, structured, and functional.
Features include a key holder, metal feet, and adjustable, sturdy straps. Dimensions of this bag are 5.2”x 12.2”x 5.5”. It also includes a padded laptop compartment. It would be a good professional bag to take on job interviews or meetings.

Next up is the MONSTINA Woman Laptop Tote Bag.
The MONSTINA Woman Laptop Tote Bag is one of the most affordable on our list, but it comes with a feature that the others do not– I built-in USB port for all of your charging needs! This bag is made from a waterproof nylon and features a top-zip closure, so that your laptop and accessories will always be safe.
This bag boasts fifteen pockets including two round, elastic pockets for your water bottle or umbrella, making it an automatic go-to for the teacher who carries everything with her. The round shoulder strap also helps lessen fatigue from carrying around heavy loads.
Reviewers love how this bag looks expensive, but it’s not! They describe the high quality material and leather-look trim as both attractive and durable. A student teacher says this bag is the perfect thing for carrying around all of her supplies. If you’re looking for a low-cost but good-looking teaching bag for everyday use, this tote could be the one.
Finally on our list, we have the Briefcase for Women by EaseGave. Like the Loovevook Laptop Bag, the EaseGave briefcase comes in so many fashion colors to match your personality and sense of style. For a more traditional look, you can choose coffee or black. For a more stylish look, you can choose from such colors as lemon, soft pink, and mint.
Despite its fashionable appearance, the bag is also highly functional. It features a reinforced padded foam to keep your laptop safe, and multiple other slip pockets for your materials.
Reviewers describe the bag as both gorgeous and sturdy. They say it is of a higher quality than you would expect for the price. This bag would be a good choice for a teacher looking for a fashionable alternative to ugly teacher bags.
