It is buttery to touch and appealing to the eye. This type of leather looks good on almost any bag and every color, however it tends to scratch easily- and scratches show up much quicker on a smooth leather than any other leathers. Dior Smooth Leather, being the exquisite leather that it is, is a very popular choice and many believe that using a leather conditioner will help fend off marks and scuffs. dior-grained-leather Dior Grained Leather With its unique texture and beautiful appearance, Dior Grained Leather is another extremely popular choice when it comes to leathers. It looks magnificent on all types of bags big or small, and wallets as well. Many are drawn to its textured style as it’s “different” than the rest, but that’s not all they’re drawn to.

A wonderful option for any piece! dior-deerskin-leather Dior Deerskin Leather There’s a few things to absolutely love about Dior Deerskin Leather.

Dior-Lizard-Leather Dior Lizard Leather Lizard is an utterly enchanting exotic leather with a fabulous design that’s sophisticated and stylish. However, while lizard may be a gorgeous exotic skin that takes your Dior bag from casual to outstanding, it MUST be treated with care.

The fragile scales of lizard are prone to scratches and will lift over time, so consider this when making your purchase. Dior-Alligator-Leather Dior Alligator Leather There is something so beautiful and elegant about alligator skin. The scales are exquisite and unique, with a variety of shapes and sizes for a dimensional and eye-catching exterior on a Dior handbag.

    Leave animals out of the equation. If Dior is “as chic as it gets”, they can create beautiful alternatives.
    “We should all be feminists” is a good start, but we should all be cruelty-free: celebrate equality for all.
