Newbie question

  1. I'm a Chanel newbie, which will be obvious after reading this question. But here it goes...what is the difference in the caviar and other leathers I read about? Do they each have a different appearance, feel, quality?
  2. yes, caviar is quite different.
    Here's a quick tutorial:

    Caviar - MOST durable, slightly pebbled texture and not soft and cushy so it keeps shape well.

    Lambskin - MOST delicate - can scratch easily if not careful but buttery soft

    Calf or deerskin - relatively durable, doesn't need too much babying and is usually pretty soft.
