I have a bag made of Clemence leather, which is quite different than anything I own that is made of calfskin. Though, a friend of mine quipped that calfskin and baby bull are the same thing. Only the genitalia is different and this is only a matter of Hermes attempting to make leathers sound my exotic. And when searching Google, because that's research at its finest, I really can't find any reliable information (surprise) about leather hide. Except, some findings that do seem to support the idea that they are the same and that something is done to the "baby bull" hide to make it appear different than regular calfskin, but that prior to that, the gender of the animal makes no difference at all.

At the end of the day, it doesn't matter AT ALL.... But I am curious. If anyone has any knowledge of leather besides what's available of Baghunter.com and StyleForum.com, it would be interesting.
