Have a Pebble leather smith coming. I'm conflicted...difference with florentine leather...never been a fan of pebbled but it's navy....couldn't pass it up.

I think that the bag works no matter the material ( type of leather/nylon).:smile:
I agree! If you like your nylon Smith bag I'm sure you'll like Pebble leather! I can't wait to know what you think when it arrives!

Maybe Pebble is lighter???
PF: I think you will love your navy pebbled leather Smith.
Dooney navy pebbled leather is beautiful, and it's so carefree to use.
Don't know if it will be much lighter than the Flo. Some of Dooneys pebbled
leather is very thick and high quality.... and isn't that what we want!
Looking forward to your pics.

Yes preloved...trying to find out more information about it
PF: just did a search to look at pebbled Smith....
came up with QVC video from years ago with lots of Smith bags....
all Florentine.... 4 colors of blue.... marine, navy, denim, ocean.
Any chance your new Smith is a Flo leather, but pebbled texture?
Possibly prior owner wasn't a Dooney leather expert.
If zipper tape is red.... as it was on both the marine and navy Flo Smith
on QVC, then it's a good chance you scored a Flo!!!! :smile: :smile: :smile:
Do you have pics?

I think this is Pebble and not Florentine...I wish it was Florentine
You are right.... with the beautiful trim, it's not Florentine.
And that red/white woven lining was used on Dillen collection.

I did some more searches, one bag had a Dooney hangtag with
a cut out duck.... I think that was from the Dillen collection.
Dillen is a high quality Dooney pebbled leather. Many of the styles in
Dillen were done with the contrasting trim. I love Dillen leather,
although it does have some weight. Next to Florentine and Alto,
I think Dillen is one of the top quality Dooney leathers. They also did
a collection called Portofino, with the same leather, but instead of darker
trim, Portofino had light trim.
