Just wanting to put this question out there to the fellow Gucci Experts. What exactly is imprime leather and how is its quality compared to the other gucci materials? Such as guccissima, gg canvas, etc....

I'm planning on getting the light blue imprime tote, in a light blue, the new colour that has just come out, but wanted to know how the material holds up.

Does anyone have one or know what imprime leather is? I asked the sales assistant and she said it was coated PVC, but she didn't sound too sure of herself.

Does it hold up well, and water proof. Hope someone is able to help, and let me know what they think of this bag.

TIA

P.s here's the link to the bag I'm talking about

The website must have made a mistake. Imprime is not leather. It is PVC or some type of plastic (which designers usually call "coated canvas").

If you check out this Boston bag, it doesn't say it's leather:

I don't own anything Imprime (although I hope to, soon. I really like the black Imprime), so I can't comment on its sturdiness, but I can guess that it is waterproof like most other PVC bags, and that it is more resistant to wear and tear compared to leather.

Thanks for clearing that up averagejoe :tp: I was thinking it was coated canvas, but then when I read on the gucci website that it was called "imprimee leather" that kind of confused me. I knew the trim was leather, but the whole bag? :amazed:

Anyhow, thanks for the reply. I'm going to check it out again this weekend, and maybe get it with the matching wallet as well.
