I had the mahina l in poudre and sold it to buy the taupe artsy... sorry I did that, I wish I could get my mahina back. The leather is just so much nicer on the mahina in my opinion. Its worth the extra money.
Definitely the Artsy! I would much rather have my empreinte than my mahina if I could only choose one. While the Mahina leather is soft and beautiful, I am not as crazy about the perforation. I much prefer the embossed leather on the empreinte. Also, I prefer the leather on empreinte as it seems so durable to me.
