How well do you know Chanel?

 How well do you really know your Chanel? Known for their chic designs, Chanels' leathers are what binds the high-class designs together. But which leather is best?
Chanel Lambskin:
Lambskin is beautifully soft and delicate; it almost craves a woman's touch. Lambskin is one of the most sophisticated leathers on the market.
With its baby-soft qualities, this also bares the downside of the fabric being prone to scratching and showing of blemishes. 
Timpanys top tips for Lambskin Leather:
-Handle with extreme caution/ keep away from potential stain hazards- if stains occur seek professional help
-Always use a dry cloth, never put water on the leather as this can lead to watermarks/stains
-Keep your bag in duster bag when not in use to maintain the leather 
Chanel Caviar Leather:
Bumpy to touch, yet intriguing to the eye, caviar leather is a popular leather amongst the Chanel community. Made from Calfskin with grain, this leather creates an eye-catching texture. Caviar leather is great for the woman on-the-go due to its resilience and hardwearing attributes. Caviar leather does not show scratches or marks and can withstand the elements- therefore Caviar leather makes for a long-lasting purchase! 
So... Lambskin or Caviar?
While both types of leather make a top choice; each is very different. Lambskin is soft and delicate with a higher chance of wear and tear- but oh so beautiful! Whereas Caviar leather can withstand the elements and take abuse without showing any signs of wear or tear. Caviar leather is also a fair bit heavier in comparison to that of the lambskin, which is another consideration to keep on mind when making your Chanel purchase. It's completely a matter of preference, is extremely soft leather more important than a hard-wearing leather?
