Hi I've just bought a padlock wallet (unseen) from The Shepton Outlets.
They told me it is rio leather... quite close to darwin but shinier??
It is a medium choc sized one and was £105, I know I can exchange if I don't like it etc but has anyone seen one of these??

I saw the padlock wallets when I was there. They are very nice, quite chunky and, yes, a bit shinier than the matt leather of the darwin ones.

thanks Sara Jane, I prefer the smaller ones, but my purse is always bulging and I really need a larger size one!!
I must admit my bags tend to look quite shiny with all the polishing, feel a bit more confident about it now!!

My Ayler is rio but I don't have any pics of that.

DH's Antony (which he *still* hasn't been given :nogood:as there are another 2 weeks until his birthday) is in chocolate Rio. It's very like Darwin but shinier and less prone to scratching, imo. I'll try and find the photo I posted...

Here they are:





It's not quite as shiny IRL.


Congrats on another fab Mulberry purchase, rachiem, looking forward to pics. Is it going under the tree?! :lol:

Ditab, thanks so much for going to all the trouble!! Really appreciated.
I've been considering a purse for a while, but ebay looks like a no no, there's just too many fakes.
The rio leather looks really nice and I think it will go well with my other bags.
This is definately one to go under the tree!!!
