HANDBAGS & SANDALS - NATURAL LEATHER
The leather used on all our handbags and sandals is a Full Grain Vegetable Tanned bovine hide. Being an entirely organic material, vegetable tanned leather will change over time. It will become softer and darker, and will aquire a beautiful deep tan patina from use and wear.
It has great durability and strength and if well cared for - potentially will last several lifetimes . .
Over time and wear, it will develop its own unique aged patina which will soften and darken.
All our Handbags and Sandals are handcrafted in Greece by local artisans who have been working with leather using traditional techniques since the 1940's.
VEGETABLE TANNED LEATHER CARE FOR BAGS
Being raw Leather, our bags are more susceptible to stains and or water marks then normal heavily dyed bags. The bags will soften and deepen to a beautiful Amber Hue through wear.
SHOES AND BAGS
From time to time you may need to use a good quality conditioner to help nourish and protect the leather. Beeswax can also be used to help protect the leather, Please be aware, beeswax can darken the leather straight away when used.
