There is a lot of parts that are not usable (small dye splashes, holes and scratches) but that's what is 3rd grade leather... The skin is huge and well tanned, the embossing is clean so it's still a good choice despite these defects.

This leather is so beautiful!! I can’t stop looking at it! I really hope more colours become available in the same leather. It would be amazing in cognac and black!! So many of my customers are already commenting on how much they love it! Please never stop stocking this and bring out more colours please! :)
