Marc Jacobs bags - always soft calfskin?

  1. Hi! I was wondering if MJ has always used the soft Italian calfskin for the classic bags (venetia, multi, etc)? It actually says so in the vogue1966 guide, but I was wondering if anyone knew otherwise?

    My friend has been offerred a bag with a slightly harder, textured leather. Not sure of the original source though..
  2. I think the classic bags have generally been soft calfskin. My Lucca bag is textured goatskin, but I think all my other MJ bags (except for my icy Stams) are soft calfskin.
