When I say heavy I mean it goes in and out of my handbag about 18 times a day – for bookings, notes, scheduling, meetings, and also every time I need to pay for something or use my travel card on public transport.
It is never far from me….or my cats.
I have an older cat who likes to scratch and chew AND a kitten who teethed on it and has sharpened his claws on it. Not a mark. Literally not a scratch on it. I always bellow at them when they get hold of it, but anyone who knows cats know that they try their luck when you are not looking.
It has softened up nicely so that it hugs the contents and this is good because I use the big back pocket quite a lot so it closes easily around even bumpy contents.
It feels so nice and squashy once you have used it for a week or so. I love the way it feels. So softy and pliable and textured.
There is no colour loss anywhere and it quite literally does not have a mark on it. Not one.
I fell in love with this leather when I saw it at VDS in 2014. But then I found Janet Leather. However, this leather stayed in my mind and I knew quantities were limited, so when I had funds, I invested. And I really really love it.
The leather supplier maintained that this was Louis Vuitton Epi leather offcuts that had an extra hatch added to it to ‘nullify’ it.
Of course one can never be sure, but it sure looks like it.
