I was at the FP store last monday. Has anyone else noticed the change of leather on the newer Brooke. I have the old eggplant color wristlet, and it is a thick smooshy leather. Just an observation. Anyone else??

much more thin and not so smooshy to my feel. I wasn't impressed by it compared to the old leather, which I loved.

What is the change BarbAga? I had just talked myself into returning a Brooke I bought a week or so ago at the outlet. I assume it's the "old" leather? Now I'm not so sure....

The new brooke is made from regular cowhide while the old version was soft pebbled cowhide. The change in leather is big, but I haven't seen the new version to decide if I like it.

The leather is the reason I liked the older Brooke. Anyway this was just a heads up that there is a change in the leather. I don't own the Brooke in the full leather in a bag, only the wristlet. I bought the Large Inlaid one when it came out.

The new brooke is going to be available in Camel, Melon, Black, and Parchment. It's staying roughly at the same size. I personally like smooth grain better because it is easier to keep clean than pebbled. You'll be able to use the leather cleaner/moisturizer on the new collection, unlike the old collection.

I prefer smooth leather too!
