Is it pre owned? Because I have mine since February and still looks brand new.Hello, I just bought the padded cassette bag and I noticed that the edge of the strap is peeling off. I was wondering if this peeling on the strap is common?
Also, does the bag come with a serial code and a bottega veneta serial code card? If so, where can I locate the serial code on the bag?
Lastly, is the strap supposed to have a bottega veneta engraved stamp? I do not see mine on this bag..

you look great and it really suits your frameDecided to go forward to purchase the cassette bag! Mine is the seasonal design with the contrast colors, having the white interior and black exterior. Absolutely love the leather on the cassette bag! Here are some eye-candies!
Just a short story: Fell in love with the padded version initially and thought the non-padded version was too boring. However, after trying the bags in store, I realized the padded version was too flashy on me. Instead, I started to appreciate the simplicity of the non-padded version

I wouldn’t recommend using any products and just let the leather age naturally. Just avoid getting it wet because it will leave a water stain if you don’t pat it dry right away. My cassette and arco tote still looks good after a couple of months of use. Enjoy your new bag.Just ordered a non padded black cassette from Mr Porter. It’s my first Bottega bag. I’m a guy and most of my bags are Prada nylon so I’m not familiar with any animail skin bags.Is there anything I should be aware with this lambskin? I know it might be get some marks easily and definitely wear over time(of course). Would you guys recommend using waterproof products on lambskin bag? Much appreciated. Thank you.
Thank you for your reply. I will follow your suggestion and enjoy the bag definitely . They just shipped my bag from Milan after I placed my order few hours ago. Can’t wait.I wouldn’t recommend using any products and just let the leather age naturally. Just avoid getting it wet because it will leave a water stain if you don’t pat it dry right away.
