Exotic Skin Handbags
i guess a thread devoted solely to bags from exotic skins, like eel, stingray, python, lizard, etc. i like the silverado by chloe in python and have seen pics of CK's new lizard skin stuff. does anyone have any pics of the new CK bags??? i was also wondering about the structure of exotic skins...im making a bag out of python right now and was curious about any of the silverado owners could tell me what their bags are lined in and if they back the snakeskin in leather. hope someone can help! oh and did anyone see that LV bag last season out of the stingray multicolor skin. i thought it was gorgeous!!!!!!!!!!!!

I have the fendi spy in python. It's held up really well, despite very regular use. The scales are pretty "firm", there've stayed in place. It's a surprisingly low maintenance bag. I've schlepped it around and it doesn't show any wear and tear.

I have the python silverado. It's held up pretty well but I'm more gentle with it than the rest of my bags. The scales are curling a little bit but it's not bad at all.

I have a python silverado and the skins have curled and started to flake. I love the bag and used it every day for a month so I am now putting it back in my closet for awhile.

I have a python Emilio Pucci bag for about 6 years. It held up well for about 3-4 years.. I've schlepepd so many papers and files in. But the scales started to curl especially around the handle area.. the person who sold it to me told me I was supposed to oil it every now and then..but I couldn't be bothered..
but Python bags are stunning and elicit looks from everyone.

What kind of oil would you use? I wonder if I should oil my python silverado...

yea I was wondering that too. I've started a new Handbag care/repair thread. Hopefully someone can give us an answer.. With proper care, python bags should last years.. or so I'm told =)

Hi can't find any thread on caring for croco bags.

How do you take care of croc leather?
I've got a matte white croco bag, any tips? Thanks
