Is it the hemp? I am letting my new Fidji air out a bit before I use it
what is funky to you? My bag did smell a bit but I didn't think much about it since my LVs also had a specific smell when buying them. Is it a really strong odor? Where did you get it?
Hi sw0pp! Thanks for your reply! It is strong, but its dissipating since I am airing it out! I got it from the Goyard store in San Francisco. It isn't a pleasant smell, I can tell you that much, but I can't say I know what it is. That is why I'm thinking its the hemp.
My LVs have only really smelled of leather, which is a smell I love
I didn't know that they used hemp in Goyard bags.
Yes, the fabric is linen, cotton and hemp woven together!
this is quite interesting, as this has not really been addressed on any forums.
i just bought a boeing 55 from paris, and it too has a very funny smell, it's not the leathery smell, it's slightly offputting, but not unbearable.
i'm airing it, it should get better.
do anyone else have the same experience???
This is an old thread, but just wanted to say that the smell definitely went away after a while
thanks smallfry for the reply.
it is very strange to me that it has that smell, i wonder what it is.
but it's reassuring to know that it will eventually go away after use. =)
