i'm confused. is the leather of the cambon tote (black patent c's on black) lambskin or calfskin? there was a thread i read that said it's calfskin which makes it more durable than lambskin. wha's the difference between the 2 leathers anyway?
Cambon tote can be made in calfskin or lambskin or washed lambskin. In general, calfskin is thicker and harder than lambskin. And you can see the think lines on the leather while the lines on lambskin is less apparent. Most of the fine leather goods of renowned designer's brands are made of lambskin, e.g., Chanel and Loewe. And the classic lambskin bag in black colour with double gold/silver chains is the soul of Chanel. But now, calfskin can be as soft and smooth as lambskin after refinements. Calfskin is still a good raw materials for leather goods, much better and more worthwhile than those in pig skin
