The Word of the Day is: Patina



Patina - That handsome richness and sheen that Wally’s leather develops over time.

This is a snapshot of a brand new Cowboy Brown Wally compared with the same brown leather that Lindsay's been using for a few months. As you can see, the leather absorbs the oils from your hands and becomes softer and beautifully worn. It's a time-sensitive process and will be different for every individual; it's that personal connection with the material that makes leather products so cherished and desirable. Did you know that this kind of vegetable-tanned leather has been historically used in making armor as well as book binding? Pretty special stuff.
