Can anyone tell me why is the Suhali leather so expensive compared to say, Epi? What is so special? Also, for those of you who have the Suhali Lockit, can you tell me if the smooth part of the leather scratches easily? I'm really worried about that given how expensive the bag is, but I'm in love with the brown Suhali Lockit (not sure whcih size yet). Does anyone know if the brown is a permanent line or just this season? I would really appreciate any feedback on your experience with this bag. I'm also considering the Epi Passy, they do look similar somewhat and the price is a lot lower than the Suhali lockit. Again, I'm worried abt the scratches to the smooth bit. Please share with me your experiences and opinions of either bags. Thanks so much.
