    My wife has a suede python bag. No idea how they did it but the skin retains the texture and pattern of scales yet is suede.

    I asked, it's actually croc, not embossed. I think you kind of answered your own question. To be fair, I thought it was fucking awesome. I don't think I'd ever buy it or anything similar, but I'm sure many Russians will.

    I think they just use the reverse side. I've seen some nice ones.

    I tried to get an explanation from the maker, but he doesn't make the skins, just the bags. I'll email him and maybe will be able to get it passed on to the hide guy.
