VEGETABLE TANNED LEATHER
Vegetable tanned leather is a classic leather that shows its wear beautifully over time. It will not remain pristine and sleek, and although scratching will occur, we do not view these marks as defects. It is completely natural, meaning it is naked, with no synthetic top finishes. The surface of vegetable tanned leather will change over time, and exposure to water will create spots. While we recommend avoiding rain, the feel created by daily wear-and-tear is meant to change and evolve over time. Natural colors like tan and nude will slowly darken over time due to exposure to the sun.
Calf leather is a smooth, refined and polished. Although recognized for its longevity, it is still prone to occasional scratching if not handled with proper care. We recommend occasionally treating this leather with a leather conditioner, which will help keep it hydrated. To prevent the leather from developing marks, we recommend avoiding exposure to abrasive surfaces and always taking care to store the item properly in its dust bag when not in use. For lighter colors we recommend avoiding exposure to dark denim or other dark fabrics with loose dye, as the leather could be subject to color transfer or stains.
