A living material, leather evolves, becomes supple and acquires a patina over time with careful use. Regardless of the color and finish of each leather, van Astyn standards require the natural features of the leather - fine lines, veins and pores - to show through. This is known as "transparency". The more "transparent" a leather is, the more it improves with time.
Leather can, however, be irreparably damaged by:
-prolonged sun exposure, which will alter the color:
-alcohol (perfumes), oily products (lipstick), ink (felt and ball point), which will leave permanent marks.
-exposure to excessive amounts of water.
Each leather is the result of a specific procedures and each article is crafted in a unique way. The best way to care for your leather accessories is to wipe them with a soft, lint-free cotton cloth, store them upright - in their dust bag - away from light and heat when they are not being used.
