Ahh, veg tanned leather. It starts out looking kind of weird, then turns into a thing of beauty. Today’s FotD is more of a patina on this Gustin Folded Cardholder owned by Brandon from Pennsylvania. He’s been carrying it around for only six months so far and this thing has darkened considerably on the exterior and has gained some indigo from all that time spent in a pocket.
Another cool thing about veg tan leather wallets is that the inside typically sees much less action than the outer, and therefore takes longer to patina as can be seen in Brandon’s wallet. In another year, you won’t even be able to tell that this thing started out undyed.
