    As many of you already know, hermesgroupie's leather book has been an excellent reference for all of us. The time has come, however, to update the thread with new pictures and any additional leathers that need to be added.

    This is where we need everyone's help.:tender: Please post a close-up picture of the leather/skin on the body of your bag and post it in this thread (without a watermark) so that we can take that picture and use it to replace the pictures on the thread:

    Our goal is to get one example of every type of leather/skin and post a 300 x 300 square in the above thread. This still active post is a perfect example of what we are looking to do:

    Everyone's participation is GREATLY appreciated! The more participation we have, the better our reference section will be for all of us to enjoy!

    Feel free to ask or PM me or the other H mods if you have any questions or would prefer to send us a picture privately. THANK YOU!!!!!! :flowers:

    ETA: We are also happy to have nice close-ups of crinoline, toile, panama, canvas....if they make a bag out of it, we would love to see it!!! We will edit out duplicates, etc...but the more the merrier!!
  2. For your reference, here is the post that is a perfect example of what we want to do:

  3. Would like to add : please upload the pics as attachment here instead of via links to photo holding sites. This way, it keeps the pics on the forum and all members are able to view (some sites are firewalled).

    Thank you and bring them on!!
  4. Yes!!! Thank you ms piggy!!!

    Great project!

    Black Togo DONE

    ETA The thumbnail looks exactly like the Togo appears to the 'naked' eye. The close up shows the grain to a much better effect though.
