Full-Grain Vegetable Tanned Leather is well-known for developing a classic worn look or "patina" overtime. A patina is a signature of a high quality leather product. It tells a story of the adventures and expeditions of your everyday life. Each piece will develop it's own unique patina from exposure to the natural oils in your skin, dirt, sunlight, moisture, etc...basically just living in your leather and handling it will help to develop it's patina.

The more natural the leather, the better the patina will eventually be. So, if you're looking for this TRUE patina we recommend choosing one of our natural dyed leather colors such as Desert Sand, Chocolate, or Tan. Some of our styles are hand-dyed, then painted, and distressed to offer a boho chic vibe, but these won't show the natural patina as well overtime.
