The leather is very high quality, the color matches the photo. But unfortunately I had with black smudges and blemishes on the edges but for the price it is forgivable , what I regret is the different thickness in different parts of the leather in certain places was up to 3,5mm (I ordered 2mm). Otherwise, the leather is easy to work with, it is firm, as a positive I see that it is not elastic ...the streaks can be covered with paint.
