IMPORTANT NOTES ON VEGETABLE TANNED LEATHER:
veg tan leather is hide that is processed (tanned) using organic materials such as tree bark and other types of plant based substances . veg tan leather in its natural form is in a sense nude and susceptible to your environment. if you get caught in the rain, rain spots will show. exposure to light and sun over time will darken the tone of the leather as will applying leather conditioner and repellent. spills and spotting does not wipe off instead contributes to the rich caramel patina of your life. if you are bothered by spots and other character building marks on your veg tanned leather - perhaps a veg tan leather bag is not for you. that said, veg tan leather is my favorite leather. its patina is like the living canvas of your life's adventures, each spot a memory.
