No, it's not leather. The website says it is a polyester and cotton twill with a metallic coating and trimmed in patent cowhide leather, which I assume is the flap and handles. Amazing how Longchamp could make polyester and cotton look like that!
Is the medium Victoire in Burgundy sturdy? I'm looking for a new bag to keep all my textbooks, yet I it to look fashionable around campus.
It appears to be sturdy and well made. I guess it depends on how many books you put in it and their weight. Care and maintenance instructions do caution about not letting it rub against something too much and state that it is prone to color transfer, soooo, also depends on how careful you want to be with a handbag considering what you want it for.
