Hi everyone,
Please help me out by letting me your opinion on Birkin togo leather veining. I came across a charming chartreuse 30cm with lots of veins. Going vertical and they are quite alined too. There must have been 8 or more of them and this is a 30cm chartreuse. Very beautiful that I personally don't mind at all about the veins but just wanted to know what other people feel about them. ;)

I like veins a lot. They make the bag unique.I know some people like more without veins, but iif I want a veinless I go for box or swift. Veins is something I like about Togo/clemencebut it's really just me.

I prefer medium to no veins. For those who love veins have you thought of Fjord?

Great responses! Thank you ladies! Marni, your bags are beautiful I am starting to LOVE the veins. Another question: because someone said that the veins are proof of good craftsmanship, could that be translated as an authentication of a Hermes product?

If you like it, who cares what we think? We don't matter in this decision. Veining is just a part of the skin. Its a good amount of money so don't buy unless you adore it.

Now to answer your question, no, I am not a fan of DEEP veining. I don't mind the number of veins but I get creeped out by wide deep ones. My etoupe togo and cassis fjjord have vvvv light veining. Its a personal decision. Like how some love the spine on cdc.

Nope. Just a sign of a more vascular cow.
