I am thinking of getting a glazed lambskin but am afraid that it is hard to maintain. Is the lambskin really scratch proof and what happens if it rains when you are out carrying this bag :sweatdrop:? Appreciate any feedback from you ladies thank you :smile::love:

So far, I have not taken mine out when it's wet outside. I have made light scratches on my bags w/my fingernails, but if I get a soft cloth and gently rub in circular motion, the scratches go away.

Will continue to post to this as my bag goes through different experiences. :P

I just eBayed my glazed lambskin bag because it was SO fragile. In my opinion, it aged worse than lambskin. The bottom corners were worn within a month of buying the bag. And I am so careful when I store them. The glaze just seems to rub off so easily if you place it down somewhere. A lot of people on here love it, but I would not suggest it for anything more frequent than a special occasion use.

For the record, I did have my glazed bag out in the rain once. It really held up fine —*better than my lambs would have. Not that I'd routinely take it into the rain. My real issue was just the fragility of it in general, no water-related issues. :smile:

sorry to hear that the bag didn't wear well along edges ilovemrjones. i'll be sure to keep an eye out for this w/my new glazed orange lambskin. i've used this one 2 days in a row already, and seems like everything is so far so good.

I haven't taken mine out yet since it's snowing lightly here. However, I usually don't take out my lambskin bags in wet weather, I'd rather use my caviar tote during those days.

I wonder if the glazed lambskin is going to be like the Fendi Spy lambskin bags, where depending how gently one uses the bag that the color may fade/wear along edges or often-rubbed areas (the back of the bag usually)? I guess time will tell me that... I will keep my fingers crossed that it won't do that.

thank you ladies for yr feedback :smile::love:

Its a pity the glazed lambskin is so fragile....I am dying to hv the pink or burnt orange colour (after seeing what shopping247 has :P). Of coz, no one wuld want to risk taking a few thousand dollars bag in the rain but at time I will be caught in the rain when I hv yet to reach my destination and the place has no shelter !! :shrugs::sweatdrop:
