Are you trying to get a patina on your leather? Try placing your bag in a sunny area.

what ban?
Just place it in a warm, bright area for a few days, turning the bag occasionally... the sunlight and the heat will help speed up the process. I don't know about tanning beds, but baby wipes will add patina to your vachetta, but make sure you condition the leather afterwards.

I've been tanning mine every day for the last week - 30 minutes a day. It is noticably darker - I don't close the bed all the way (so it doesn't get too hot) and I put it on a clean white towel - (no tingle lotion LOL!)
