Yep, that’s totally normal. Full-grain leather is the highest quality leather available. Its unaltered grain, which gives it its strength and longevity, also means it may contain uncorrected marks.
We really love the natural markings in full-grain leather, but we try to work around any markings that aren’t complementary to the design. We try to showcase beautiful markings when we can.
The mark(s) on your bag tell the story of the hide it was made from. As your leather bag accompanies you on your own journey it will absorb pieces of your story as well.
We hope you can enjoy the unique markings on your bag BUT, if you really don’t love your markings, contact us and we can try to work something out for you!
When leather gets wet, it actually ends up losing moisture. That’s why conditioning your leather is so important if you want to keep it looking its best! Properly conditioned leather has a finish on it which repels water. It won’t absorb too much water unless you actually soak it.
If your leather would get wet regularly and you would never condition it again, the leather would weaken over time and actually start to dry rot. Conditioning your leather every 4-6 months prevents this and lets your leather’s natural beauty shine.
What about dark spots on my leather from water or rain?
If you see dark spots in your leather from rain or a water spill, know that they will eventually disappear back into the leather so to speak. As long as you’re cleaning and conditioning your leather regularly, they are nothing to worry about!
What if something other than water spills on (or in) my bag?
If you actually spill something on your bag, like, say your morning latte, don’t fret! Just use a soft, damp cloth to clean the spot well. If you have a leather specific cleaner on hand, great! If not, luke-warm water will do until you can get home and give it a good cleaning and conditioning with the proper products.
