What's the scoop with Nappa Leather?
This is from Wikipedia: Nappa leather is a full-grain leather, typically dyed, made from unsplit kid-, lamb- or sheep-skin, and noted for softness and durability. It is often used in high-quality leather products such as high-end furniture and accessories such as wallets and luggage. One example would be Mercedes-Benz S-Class interiors.

Jburgh!!!! unsplit..? sounds.. painful?? Does JC use Nappa leather? Im not sure if Ive seen it somewhere. Does the True bag come in Nappa?
Here is another link you should read: http://www.irvingtanning.com/leather_glossary.htm
Nappa is sheep, lamb or goat. If it says calf, then it is not nappa...different animal. The bag should state the materials used in manufacturing.
I have only seen the True bag in calf suede, calf/pony, and snake. I do not know if Choo uses goat, sheep, or lamb in the bags. I do have some goat Choo shoes!
Amazing info! Thanks Jburgh!
