Gaucho leather, as used in shoes and womens handbags, is what exactly?
How do you treat it? Can I use reno on it? Water proofing spray?
Hermes 'is' top of the line, always have been. They use top quality full grain vegetable tanned leather from the best tanneries, and their craftsmen are the very best.You should have asked this a couple of weeks ago, I just got back from Argentina.
Can't find a definition anywhere, but googling reveals that other makers are using the term as well.
The colleague who attended the conference with me in BA informed that Hermes is considered top of the line now, this is according to his wife.
Please make a note of it.
Meanwhile, what is gaucho leather? It must mean something!
I remember how disappointed I was to read on wikipedia or someplace about all the different types of "leather" goods. Eg., "bonded leather" is actually just 17% ground up leather mixed with vinyl or something, they don't even allow it to be called leather in the UK!
And so forth.
LOL....and what's wrong with that? Remember Clint Eastwood and his series of "spaghetti westerns," The Good, The Bad and the Ugly; A Fistful of Dollars and For A Few Dollars More(!)?Hmmmm, Argentinian cowboy leather made in Italy...?
