What is Patina? Much like your favorite pair of raw denim, leather ages in a similar way, developing a “patina” as oils from your skin and other elements of the environment absorbs into it. Patina isn’t a negative; instead, it’s the main reason people fall in love with natural leather in its raw state. Starting with a beautiful pale tan shade, it eventually develops into any range of browns through wear and use. Much like a pair of raw denim, you might not notice day-to-day changes. Instead, it’s much more dramatic when “before” and “after” images are paired up against each other. . . . #patina #leatherpatina #leathergoods #vegtan #vegetabletanned
