It's Patent leather right? How come some people call it plastic?
I think it is plastic-y like...I don't know, though :o
I am pretty sure patent leather is plastic coated leather. I hope no one is calling it just "plastic". Miroir is pretty much plastic (PVC-polyvinyl chloride).
my SA told me that because the put a coating of varnish to make it shiney, you have to be careful...i think it is patent leather
That's a good question. I've never thought about it, but now that you've asked I'm curious too.
acording to the tags you get that tells you the materials it is
outside:- Varnish calf leather
inside calf leather
It is leather coated with a varnish making it patent leather.
Embossed patent leather.
I've never really seen anything else with the Vernis materal on it, have you?
It's patent leather.
ETA: You can smell the leather from the inside.
only SOME vernis items are leather inside. Basically the outside is always embossed patented leather, however the inside can be leather, synthetic/plastic material, or cotton lining
so it is, indeed, leather, fron a cow. not from a plastic tree, but from an animal?
good to know, because my vernis was expensive!
The LV site and product card describes it as scratch-resistant plastic coating on the leather! I'm pretty confident of it being not as prone to scratches as some might think. But yes it would pick up ink-type stains (newspapers, magazines, etc) more easily due to the plastic/rubbery coating
Its coated patent leather.
