About the Caramel Leather

This beautiful caramel colored leather is aniline leather, meaning that it retains the most natural look possible. Aniline leather will have subtle differences in tones and depths, giving the leather a truly rich feel. Each piece of leather will have natural markings that make the handbag unique. It can be compared to stained hardwood, in the way that natural grains and variations in the wood appear, instead of wood that has been painted. This leather also will show markings from normal wear and use. You can use your finger nail to scratch the leather. This is the sign of real, high quality leather and the way to find the most natural looking brown handbag. These marks add character to the handbag over time, however can also be reduced using the oils from the palm of your hand or completely illuminated using a good leather conditioner. 

I searched high and low for a brown leather that looked as beautiful and real as this one. Most leather handbags use leather with some kind of color correction. But with brown, a color correction often makes it look fake, in the same way that using brown paint to make hardwood look like stained wood could never really look like stained wood.  It looses the rich depth of color and looks flat. 

I was so happy to find this beautiful leather. It stands out as natural and real and is not easily accessible in handbags. I hope you like it as much as I do!
