Have you noticed that “Saffiano” leather is all the rage right now in handbags? It is not a new leather byany means, and I don’t know if it is because it’s a ‘springtime’, but I’m seeing it in every retail store from high to low.
Ferragamo and Prada use it. Now more moderate retailers are getting into the market with this not so new way of creating handbags.
I was made aware of this when I was searching for a tote for myself and all I could come up with was a Saffiano leather tote. Coach, Michael Kors, DKNY and even Target has them
I thought you’d like to know what’s so special about Saffiano leather?
These are two photos that show the markings of a bag made from saffiano leather
The leather is stamped in a method which renders the bag, briefcase or tote virtually scratch resistant and easy to clean. In a series of cross-hatch designs the leather is rendered very resistant to stains and scratches. It makes a great leather for business bags and briefcases.
I think Saffiano leather treatment is a personal thing. I tend to like the look and feel of glove leather, but this can require more TLC. So if you are someone who is hard on your handbag or tote, I’d recommend that you take a look at this treatment.It isn’t new, it’s just finally making it’s way down to the mass market
What are your thoughts about Saffiano Leather? Do you think it looks luxurious or do you think it looks like Plastic?
