  1. Is this normal to happen in a GST bag? The left handle is more pebbled and rough than the right handle that seems pebbled yet flat. Just been reading about the shiny and matte caviar and I looked at my GST and this is what I've found out. Is this a flaw or just natural grain of the caviar leather? The bag is 2 years old already. Just saw it today. Haven't noticed it before. Is this a flaw that I should be worried and take to chanel boutique? Thanks!

  2. I don't think this is a flaw, it is most likely due to wear (when you overlap the straps) especially since you said the bag is already 2 years old. I do own a few GSTs, but I don't really wear mine so I haven't noticed this problem with my bags, but maybe someone else who has worn their GSTs quite a bit can chime in?

  3. the leather is different for any bags, it's a skin and the animal have not a regular skin

  4. I just checked my GST for you and it didn't have this problem. I only wear it for 2 month.

  5. Thanks! Funny how I had a true caviar on one side and a washed caviar on the other. Haha!
     
  6. Leather is never perfect. You just noticed it after 2 years...don't worry about it!
     
  7. Yeah. My worry is, will it also happen to classic flaps? Thats my worry actually. GST is just fine.
     
  8. I just purchased a jumbo classic flap in black caviar yesterday....it is beautiful!!!!
     
  9. Really? Wow! In our boutique caviars are hard to find.
     
  10. I wouldn't worry about the same thing happening to the classic flaps, as the straps are woven in with the chains, so don't worry:smile: enjoy your bags!
