I'm new to this forum but not at all new to Bottega.
Ahd yet I've usually said I have a red bag or tan bag or black bag, well you get the idea.
I also have no idea, for example, what parma is!
I would like to start a thread where all of you knowlegable members can educate those of us who are not up on all the lingo.
If there is already such a thread, I apologize. I did a search and could not find it.
Help us out here!
Thanks,
PG

nappa, nappa umbria, deer skin that being used in what type of bag... this really confused me... TIA..

it would be nice to have a color and leather reference guide like they have in the hermes subforum (fitting too since they apparently use the same leather supplier). here's a new one, a lovely grass green in deerskin:

Nappa is the softest; I think it's lambskin in BV's, but by definition it could be calfskin. Nappa Umbria is treated, but hopefully someone knows what it is exactly--I don't. Cervo is deerskin.
