Genuine Goat Leather by its nature has some scars (due to markings/cuts on goat skin) which reconfirms that its 100% pure and gives it a perfect vintage look. Also, each bag has different colour shade and it might be a little different from given pictures which makes each bag unique. Each bag is specially fresh made for you so there might be a little different smell of leather. Some of our customers usually like this leather smell some don't. It any which way fades away within 3-4 weeks of regular use.
