NOMADIC 2 on left is about one year old. its owner travels tons for her work as an international photographer. left side of bag is darker. Olive oil spilled on it. deciding to do nothing about it, she says the darkness is growing across the pocket. she's having fun watching it change and remembering where she was in life when these events happened. the bag on the left is my bag and the prototype for the saddlebag. it took its maiden voyage 3.5 yrs ago on a trip to ny for market week. its experienced a couple of thunderstorms and a recent rainstorm which soaked it right through, has had food stains, oils from my hands, grime from urban travel, stains from new dark jeans, etc...all of these episodes contribute to the patina you see today. from an almost white state, veg tan leather eventually turns a rich caramel color.
IMPORTANT NOTES ON VEGGIE TAN LEATHER:
veggie tan is an unprotected leather. it will pick up evidence of your life. the color will eventually darken to a caramel color. if you get caught in the rain, rain spots will show (and create a beautiful texture). if you are bothered at all by character building marks on your veggie tanned leather...this bag is not for you. adding protective coating (will darken the color). sdg veggie tan bags are 'sunned' in a backyard in santa monica ca. see 4th image of prototype bag after 10 months of wear including 2 trips to new york from LA in rainstorms and snow.
