Saffiano Cross Hatch leather was originally produced in Italy for the Prada brand. Since then, it's become a staple of many luxury line handbag companies. Basically, it's a very level split that has a premium coating on it that has the crosshatch print pressed into it.
The Coach bag company uses a fair bit of this leather, and they discontinue colors on a regular basis in order to keep their line fresh and new. And sometimes they simply find themselves in possession of too much leather inventory. Bad for them good for us and good for you.
If you burnish the edges with Toko pro, or Tokonole, and color those edges with Angelus paint or better yet, Fenice Diamond Edge Color, you will have created your own luxury line handbag at a fraction of the normal cost!
