Hello,
Anyone would have insight on what type of leather this is?
It feels very soft suede like but I cant say if its lambskin or calf?
Also anyone have any suggestion on if this can be dyed black or grey?
It looks very tired and discoloured but with quilts still puffy and would like to salvage it. leather-chanel-silver-gold-square-mini-255-lambskin-single-flap-bag-gunmetal-hardware-handbags.jpg chanel grey silver.jpg

Looks like Metallic Lamb or Calf to me. It might not be possible to repair due to the finish. Perhaps send pic to leather surgeons and see what they say.

This reminded me of the 14B metallic goatskin, but it only came in charcoal grey (with aged ruthenium hw) and pink (with ghw) as far as I know.

Hi, I also recommend you reaching out to Rago Brothers in Morristown, NJ as I have been using their service for over 15 years and haven’t had one disappointed experience. Their website is https://www.ragobrothers.com/
Hopefully you will find this helpful.

Rago Brothers fixed a broken turnlock on a one of Kelly; they did a superb job, so another thumbs up for them!

During that year, alot of the leather that felt suede like and was labeled " iridescent " easily color transfered and wear and tear was not good. If there's stains on it, it'll be difficult to repair. Later, in 2016, they used the word "iridescent " to describe the leather and it was much better quality .
