How Does a leather Patina Develop in the first place?
Vegetable tanned leather absorbs the traces of life around it, whether it be contact with the sun, oils from our skin, moisture, dust, heat or simply friction from the wallet laying in your pocket, and usage of cards, coins and bills. The patina develops gradually as it comes into contact with all of these aspects, it might develop a sheen in some places – while some spots may see a relative darkening. In other words, the more you use it, the quicker the wallet will develop its rich patina.
