"I was looking for patent leather bags. ONLINE this looks like patent leather, in fact when you search for genuine leather, patent- this will come up. It is leather and and it it patent embossed-- exactly what it says-- but the picture (for me) made it look completely patent leather. The bag is cute and stylish and I love the camel color with the dark trim, but think of a suede like bag with a patent (glossy cover) stenciled snakeskin texture.
I will keep it, but it will not be as durable as a complete patent leather bag."
