Due to the nature of tanned leather, the material is delicate and is prone to minor discoloration. However that is the nature of leather goods. The leather will not remain pristine and sleek, and although scratching will occur, we do not view these marks as defects. It is completely natural, with no synthetic top finishes. The surface will change over time, and exposure to water will create spots. While we recommend avoiding rain, the patina created by daily wear-and-tear is meant to change and evolve over time.
The variations in color and texture are prized characteristics of tanned vintage leather. Over time, the color may fade due to sunlight, further enhancing its natural color. Given the delicate nature of our products, we recommend careful use of the leather product.
