I wish they would do all bags in all colours, I really want the nano in the monochrome pink and the monochrome grey. I just know if I buy one in any other colour they will do it!

Have you tried writing to them, asking whether it would be possible to order your desired model - colour combo?

Smooth leather nanos are pretty but they're so much work... I've only used mine a few times and I have some little scratches that I have no idea how they got there! I try to baby it as much as possible but it's really delicate leather.
Aw sorry to hear that! I use my nano all the time and haven’t had any issues. Maybe the leather quality varies between batches.

Adding a pic of my lovelies for posterity. Trying to decide what color I should get in the regular Numero Un to make a nice trio...

Gorgeous! Love the contrast stitching on the nano. Mini looks luxe! Do you use a suede protector with it? That's my only worry about getting the mini. I once saw one for resale in a lighter colour and the suede part was in such bad condition, it looked like they wore it in a rainstorm, then dragged it against the concrete and rubbed it in the dirt! It was traumatising to look at lol. But surely it's fine if you just generally take care of it?

As for my smooth nano the scratches and dents are tiny and could only be noticed by me so not so bad, just wish it was more robust. I don't think it's a quality issue, just my use case (commuting to and from work including ferry, train and lots of walking and general chaos).

I’ve just noticed they’ve added I think 3 new colours to the Numero Un Nano, not sure if they have added new colours to any of their other bags as it’s just the nano I’ve been eyeing. The lilac looks lovely.
I was eyeing the nano in taupe but with these new additions they make me want it in the trio camel, I’m definitely broke

No I’ve not, something to consider but I’m really eyeing the lilac now. I wish I could see them in person first. Will probably play it safe and go with black!

You know, I probably should put suede protector on it but I haven’t. It’s been holding up well so far... I’ve had it about a year and a half I think.

I love the numero sept, but I hate the strap. I hate that it’s not removable and that it attatches at the back. It would look so good with hooks on the sides!
has anybody tried to modify the bag?

I find the Polene terminology a bit confusing :-s

I love the "Full grained Textured Calf Leather" of the Numéro Un. I'm used to calling this type of leather surface "Pebbled" :love:.

I am not so fond of the criss-cross pattern of the "Textured Calf Leather" used on Numéro Un Nano. Which I would have called "Saffiano"...:hrmm:

(On the French language version of the website it is even more unclear,- "Cuir de veau grainé pleine fleur" versus "Cuir de veau pleine fleur grainé" :wtf::lol:)

Anyway, I wish they would make the Nano in the Pebbled / Full grained Textured Calf Leather :girlsigh:
