It is vegetable tanned leather.I saw the Carrot, Turmeric Root and Bright Carmine in person yesterday in the small Swinger bag. They are even prettier in person. Apparently these are made with natural dyes? I would love to see them offered in SLGs because the Carrot really caught my eye.
The price difference is because of using vegetable tanned leather from what an SA told me. $295 for solid color and $350 for the one with embroidery. They don't come with crossbody strapsI believe the price difference is based on the natural dyes used vs. traditional? My SA brought out the small Swingers in those and they are a different texture. Almost muted but still bright if that makes sense. The leathers weren't as shiny. Almost like a nubuck look but not nubuck in terms of care.
