Does coated canvas darken over time?

  1. A question for people who have had mono/damier for many years.

    Does the canvas itself darken over the years? Or am I seeing the print become less bright and sort of blend in? I'm talking 5-10 years because I see a difference in older bags for sale on eBay - the canvas, not just the handles.
     
  2. the brown can darken, just like the 'gold' on mono can darken
     
  3. Yes, Mono and Damier canvas will fade over time (many many years) and with direct exposure to sunlight.
     
  4. None of mine have faded. Only the leather darkens over time. It's coated canvas. It can't fade.
     
  5. I think the sunlight can fade it some over the years
