  1. I'm considering purchasing a raisin bag (not sure which style yet), and I'm curious to know your thoughts about the quality of the leather on raisin-colored bags. I've heard from a Bal rep that the raisin leather is distressed rather than smooth. Otherwise, I don't know much about the quality. Your comments would be greatly appreciated. TIA!
     
  2. I have a raisin city and the leather is distressed which I personally love. It is moderately thick and very color saturated...I have seen other pictures of raisin that were more smooth, so like most bal bags it varies.
     
  3. I have Raisin Weekender and I am in love with the leather. It is much different than any of my other Agnaeu bags. It is very buttery to the touch (read: Not dry at all!) and very thick as well. It has some distressing but not the bad veiny kind.. it is smooth to the touch.. I really love it!

    The color is really rich and complex too :tup:
     
  4. I just got mine - my first bbag ever! Mine is really smooth with not too much distressing.. I'll have to reveal it later
     
  5. well i just sold my raisin ggh pt because i didn'tl ike the leather:it was stiff and not distressed as i love..
     
  6. Raisin can look a bit mottled, I think. My SGH PT has a bit of that problem. But otherwise the leather is quite smooth and softer than SS 2009.
     
  7. I think it really varies... so many tPFers love their Raisins, but the ones I saw in the Bal Singapore shop were really awful - stiff and smooth. I think it would be best if you could get a chance to pick out the bag yourself.
     
  8. I HAVE A RAISIN CITY AND IT IS THICK, CHEWY AND FEELS VERY SOFT. IT'S NICE AND DARK WITH SLIGHT DISTRESSING. IMO, JUST PERFECT!:smile:
    I THINK IT'S WISE TO TRY AND SEE THEM IRL. OTHERWISE I WOULD STRESS TO THE SA THAT YOU WANT A CERTAIN KIND OF LEATHER, ETC.
