Fashion by FarFalla creates their bags with only the finest high-quality Italian leathers.

Trying to decide which leather is right for the bags in your store?

Take a peek at some of the leathers Fashion by Farfalla uses.

Calfskin leather

Calfskin is one of the softest cowskin leathers. Fashion by FarFalla use only the best quality calfskin from top-grain hides. This is the most desirable part of the calfskin. Calfskin leather improves with time.


1. Drummed Calfskin

A luxurious leather which is pebbled and textured. The grain is bigger en flat.

2. Box Calfskin

It has a grain pattern of fine box-shaped creases.

3. Soft Calfskin

Very smooth and soft texture.

4. Crocodile of snake printed Calfskin

Shiny and glossier than the other calfskin leathers.


Patent leather

Fashion by FarFalla uses lacquered calfskin.

Patent leather tends to have a vintage look (the fifties). We advice this leather for little bags and accessories. It's probably best to choose black or a dark color.


Metallic Calfskin

Shiny, shimmer, soft calfskin.

Fashion by FarFalla uses this leather for evening bags, make-up bags , bracelets or big shoppers.

It is an easy to clean leather and it looks glamorous as well.



The softest, thinnest, most supple skin.

A buttery texture and finely grained. Stretches well and has a good movement but also very fragile leather.

Fashion by FarFalla uses for the most classy and fashionable look.


Saffiano leather

Fashion by FarFalla likes to work with this sophisticated leather because it is durable, practical and easy to wipe clean.

Saffiano leather is made from the highest quality Italian calfskin leather, then deep-dyed.

Originally it was a signature and pattent of Prada.

Saffiano is a textured leather and is also finished with a wax treatment. As a result this leather is pretty much scratch resistant and durable. 

Fashion by FarFalla loves saffiano leather.



Suede is an interior split of hide.

A velvet-like, soft and fuzzy look and feel makes suede a popular choice for hobo handbags.

Fashion by FarFalla advice this leather to use for big shoulder bags or to use in combination with big grained calfskin to create a hippie or boho look.
