Good question. I think of the natural leathers as the ones that will absorb oil, water, etc. Box has a somewhat water/ oil repelling finish to it. I think natural vache and chamonix would be closest look to natural box. I like the leathers that have to be imprinted rather than painted with the "Hermes"
Maybe a leather expert will respond.
I'll try to remember to check leather book next time I visit H.

D - You mean "natural" color right? Not the leather "vache natural"?

People in here seemed to be confused about it :P

I think you mean vach natural. I saw a Constance with Pall several months ago in this and it was fabulous! A more natural leather is Barenia which takes on coloring from environmental changes more easily i.e. water stains, oil etc. Passed on the Connie because I knew I would be afraid to use it because of the more delicate leather and color.

^^It was a form of box calf and natural is the color as I understand it. I guess I'm as confused as the next guy. I know it when I see it:smile:

my herbag is vache natural - it looks quite different to box, although it is very smooth like box. it is extremely thick and heavy.

we've got to get to the bottom of this!

Absolutley! I mean, what should we be doing with our time except obsessing about these terribly important things? The world is going to ****, but at least we will all be wearing the right bag and will damn well know what kind of leather it is made of!!!:yahoo:
