Shopmom started an interesting thread about ostrich leather and its ability to handle rain. I have been wondering which leathers repel rain, or at least don't get permanent rain marks. So far, I know my fjord Bolide is fine (caught in a rainstorm this am - no permanent marks - yay!) and of course my courchevel trims are fine, and I understand chevre and vache liegee repels water, and the old gulliver (now swift) gets water marks that dry without a stain. (Does anyone have a gulliver bag that has seen rain who can confirm this?) Togo apparently is fine if caught rained on slightly? What else doesn't leave permanent stains (and pain)? On the down side, I know box can't handle rain. My favorite leather. I own three box H bags and it is an eternal sadness that they can only come out on clear days. What other leather is notorious for staining in the rain?
