The darkening and patina of our natural veg tan leather is one of the reasons we love this leather so much! The more you use it, the better it gets.

If you choose our un-dyed natural veg tan, every drop of rain, every little sticky finger print, every summer day will leave an indelible mark. It’s a journal of your time together. A love story, if you will. A story you can look back on and remember little times that may otherwise slip through the cracks of your memory. So go ahead, use the bag. Let life leave it’s marks. You’ll love your bag all the more. Pinky swear.

If you choose one of our other colors, your bag will still gain a rich patina, but in a more subtle way. This veg tan leather is stuffed with waxes and tallow to help protect it, so you won’t get the same affect you do with the untreated, but we think you will love it just the same. It will darken and soften - especially where you hold it and touch it. This makes every bag age in it’s own unique way. It becomes truly yours.

We encourage you to use your Pennyroyal bag as your go-to everyday bag. They are designed for use. Hard use. And if you use it so much you need a repair - we offer that service, too. Email us for details if your bag needs some love.

If you would like to share an “after” photo of your well loved Pennyroyal, please do! We would love to incorporate it into our stories page.
