  7. Dear doc,

  8. Thank u doc
    For sharing ur knowledge n opinion
     
  9. and how about snake skin?
    TIA!
     
  10. Doc, you are the ultimate enabler!! :p Thank you for sharing all your knowledge!!
     
  11. Folks appear to be asking more questions which I do no have the answers to... sorry.

    I can say that ostrich wears very well and if cared for can be expected to do as well as most of the non exotic leathers however,quill bumps are often lost which is the main difference.

    IMO reptile skins need special care to keep them nice enough for generations of use...

    Snake skin being an exception to this. IMO any skin which comes from a reptile which sheds it's skin is delicate by nature and should not be considered to have any real longevity.
    Someone asked about snake skin Birkins which to my knowledge are far from normal I have heard of only one having been made and not an Hermes typically used exotic skin.
