Over to you
This week we’re responding to your questions about why our Héritage leather bags mark so easily. As Adeline, our accessory expert explains, this is intentional.
"The name "héritage" refers to an ancient, ancestral tanning method, whereby leather is naturally colored using die from tree bark.
This process is manual, and thus takes time - anywhere between a few days to several months. The tannins impregnate the skin little by little, gently embellishing it. Natural defects of the skin are left visible, and it is this variation and singularity which defines the high quality of this leather. The skin is purposefully, delicately damaged by the finishes. Overtime, it will develop a patina; a unique tarnish, which reveals the small marks of life and gives it a unique vintage appearance. A living story, your bag becomes truly a witness to your life.
