calfskin flap?

  1. I have seen a few flap bags labeled as calfskin.. I was wondering what the difference is between calfskin and lambskin? Is calfskin also still available? Thanks!
  2. I think that the caviar leather is crafted from calfskin and not lambskin.
    Someone will come around and give the definitive answer.
  3. calfskin is more durable than lambskin.
    Chanel does calf in a few different ways, most commonly grained calf, caviar or distressed calfskin.
    Caviar is their most durable, lamb is their most delicate.
    Calfskin is always available, at least 1/2 of Chanel's bags are calf.
