So, I love Botkiers but wanted to see what you all thought about the many changes in leather they have used over the past couple of years. I started out as a fan of the handbags largely because the leather was so great. This was a few years ago. Then they switched from the soft leather they normally used to this pebbled leather I didn't like very much. Last season, they went back to some very soft leather (esp on the Biancas) but that leather was thinner and more delicate. I just saw some of the new season bags in Bloomingdales for the first time and was really not impressed with the leather. It's tougher and feels treated or something, almost vinyl-like. This was true even on the Bianca bags. I have bought at least 2 Botkiers every season for years now but if the leather is like this on all the F/W bags, this may be the first season I don't buy any. What's up with all the changes in leather on the bags? Anyone else notice this?
