Wapity wrist strap made from different leather?

  1. Hi all,

    I went to the gym last night and took my wapity with me. I accidently spilt my water bottle on my wapity and splashed the leather wrist strap. I always thought the wrist strap was made from vachetta, but this morning, when I went to check on it to see if there were water marks/stains, it looked perfect! There are no marks or stains on where I spilt my water. So, my question is: is the leather on the wrist strap different from the leather used on the handles of the purses?:shrugs:
  2. I thought that too because I've gotten some water on my wapity and it looked fine. However I don't know for sure.
  3. Hmm, thats interesting...maybe its a coated leather?
  4. its vachetta. if you looked on the "other countries" section on the vuitton site it is available for purchase as a "VVN Wrist Strap"
  5. Hmm, sorry to be a bit ignorant, but what does "VVN" stand for?

  6. véritable veau naturel (genuine natural calfskin)

  7. Some of the newer vachetta handles feel coated to me, like the BH bags. The don't seem to patina the same way either IMO.
