How will my leather wallet wear and patina?
The beauty of a well-made, 100% veg-tan leather wallet is in the patina. The more that your wallet is used and abused the more patina will develop, giving it character and telling your story.
The oils from your hands and friction in your pocket will darken and soften the leather, especially in high contact spots. We burnish the edges on all of our wallets which jump starts the patina process.
After a few months of using your wallet, empty a card pocket and take a peek inside. You'll see the original colour of the leather, having been protected by the card, and it should be lighter than the rest of wallet.
