Hello everyone I’ve not posted on here for years so probably very out of the loop on recent trends, but after a long time I found myself back in the market and craving something in oak, a colour I’d very much dismissed previously. I ordered two bags and two purses all in the same natural oak leather, but when they arrived I was totally shocked that I hated them all on sight. The leather seems stiff and artificial, even the colour is not as I expected it to be, so they got repackaged and sent straight back. I’m a fan of Mulberry and own several, my current favourites being my beautiful chocolate Antony and black glossy goat Bayswater, both with divine leather. I really want to own something in oak but if this leather is my only choice, I’m afraid I might have to look at another brand (I also own two Coach bags which I adore) Can anyone shed any light on this please or if you own a newer oak Mulberry can you tell me if the leather improves with age. Thank you in advance.
