  3. Is lamb skin material easily torn? Will the material wear n tear easily?

    • Hi Rachael, lambskin feels soft and luxurious and can easily get scratched, Caviar are strong material, durable but they are heavier. The reissue 2.55 are also in distressed aged calf leather, which are also durable.

  4. For this bag in the pic above, is the material in caviar or lambskin?
