    Question Deerskin or calfskin - what's the big difference

    What's the big difference between deerskin and calfskin bags? Besides the obvious one is a deer and one is a cow. Is one more durable than the other?

    I always thought deerskin was softer and more elastic than calfskin. I suppose it is less durable in the sense that it stains and scratches more easily. But I also read that deerskin can get wet with no ill effects, unlike calfskin.

    Calfskin is more durable yes but the softness also comes from how it is processed. I love to woeprk with both.

    I recently bought a deerskin bag (with lacquer on the outside to protect it) and it is considered very soft and supple.

    Hi
    Yes you are right it was the big difference between deerskin and calfskin hand bags, one is the deer and one is a cow. Both are good, but Deerskin handbags very soft and Calfskin handbags is more durable and long-lasting.
