  2. Vlad and I are fortunate to have a large platform with an amazing community of handbag loving people who join us daily from across the globe. We want to be a part of the fix to end systematic racism, both conscious and unconscious. We are taking steps, both personally and professionally, to be better allies for the Black community. You can read more of my thoughts on PurseBlog and discover a great roundup of Black-owned handbag brands as well.

    As our forums are shopping-focused, read about the 15 Percent Pledge and consider signing the petition to call on major retailers to pledge 15% of their shelf space to Black-owned businesses. Please reach out to me directly if there is something you feel I could do differently on our forums to be a better ally and make this forum a welcoming community for all.

    If you want to deepen your anti-racism work, here is a comprehensive document with resources on books for kids, podcasts, articles, videos and more.

  1. I love the soft washed leather and the general looks, but not the flaws and design glitches. Anybody know of a good substitute?

    Thanks!
     
  2. I don't have one...but I've seen them IRL and Linea Pelle makes a gorgeous washed leather bag. They still have a bit of a 'raw' look to them, but from what I've read on TPF, they are better quality than Moni Moni. This last season's croc styles are much more 'finished', but still have that phenomenally soft washed feel to them.
     
  3. If you can find one, Hayden-Harnett's Pallenberg duffel is a dead ringer for the Splendor. The leather isn't as soft and washed, but the look is the same. Unfortunately the only place you can find one is probably eBay.
     
  4. I second both of the above.
     
  5. thanks for all your suggestions!
