I was actually just wondering about the weight of the leather... glad to know it's lighter! Thanks for the info, I will have to check with those stores about this lovely colorHi yes it's the Tan color natural calfskin. This leather makes the bag lighter! compared to my older smooth and pebbled leather Mini! And yes they still have it in store i believe its part of the new collection? Nieman's And Barney's should have them in stock.
