the cabat famously takes two men two days to make, there's a certain appeal in the honesty of the craftmanship involved.

I have a light brown/ dark brown leather woven medium tote from a few years ago. I love mine!

im a new fan of BV bags and thinking of getting one, but im afraid there will be lots of replicas, and with the simplicity of these bags it would be hard to tell the difference right? besides the material used.. so im still debating whether or not to spend 800+ on an easily replicated bag, help!

I've never seen a bv replica in person, but I would be shocked if you couldn't tell. the reason these bags are so expensive is the craftsmanship which I'm sure cannot be replicated for $99. but with that said, who cares if there are knockoffs? no matter how hard the government and industry try there will always be knockoffs. also, bv has no trademark in woven leather so there will be bags that to the untrained eye will look like bv (for ex, I think cole haan recently issued a collection of woven leather bags). my point is that a well made bag will make you happy -- isn't that all that matters?? I have several and just the smell of them is worth the $$.

I also think for example a Vuitton print is easier to copy than a woven bag and who (like the average woman in the street) wants a fake woven bag with no logos?? I don't think it will become a huge trend and if they're getting copied and sold on the street they will be replaced by another Vuitton print very quickly...

Hahahah...I definitely agree with you on the smell.
The smell of my bag makes me high sometimes honestly..it smells the best among all my bags.

I think BV empitomizes under-stated chic and it's quality would really be hard to replicate. I have seen other woven leather bags before and they just don't feel (nor smell ) the same.

Actually there are tons of woven leather bags with no logos at Kmart, Targets, Marshall's, Macy's and ...but they are truly hedious so I don't think people will mistake your BV for those...

Oh btw i remember Dooney used to make woven leather bags (I think I saw it in Marie Claire before)..they are quite nice too. If you don't wan to spend $5000 on BV you should see if you can find the DB version
