That's how mine looks. It's supposed to look like that for a vintage effect. Balenciaga has an interesting leather too on their city bags, but Miu Miu seems thicker and more durable. all vitello lux leather (like the one on the bow bags) are supposed to come with some kind of lines on it. It's just something one might have to get used to. I love my new medium bow though.
Yes, more vintage. But really have to take care of it, if not the bow will look very old and used.
