Hi TPFers,

Would water cause the leather of Balenciaga bags to harden? My friend brought back a holiday season bag for me and it is extremely hard. She said when she was in transit, the airport left ll their luggage a in the rain!

Aren't the holiday bags made out of the new chèvre leather? Last year's holiday collection was hard....not soft leather.

I use my bags in the rain and they have never gone hard. I don't have any in chèvre so maybe it's goat thing!
