Well made vegetable tanned natural leather looks and feels better with age – they will darken with sun exposure and oiling, the patina will change as the grain expands with age & as the leather absorbs moisture, grit and oils from your hand & the environment.
Here’s my Red Moon mobile phone holder after 2 years of use – very much darkened and the grain expanded quite magnificently.
Then, at it’s prime, this beautiful phone holder was taken from me… so I had to replace it:
The new one is made by Studio D’Artisan, with single layer natural leather (the old Red Moon was double layered). Hopefully they will age just as well 🙂
More pictures to come as they evolve!
