Question about Barenia

  1. Can someone advise me on how well barenia refurbishes? Is it similar to box calf and will return to almost new condition?

    TIA~
     
  2. no it doesn't! it ages, darkens, its amazing!
     
  3. And it catches moisture like a sponge too! But whatever water droplets land on it, once you rub them all into the leather, it all looks natural.

    Not for the faint-hearted, this one.
     
  4. Thank you guccigal and mrssprakles!

    How about corner wearing? I have no problem with the darkening of color or scratches of barenia, but I was wondering if the corner wearing can be spa treated to almost brand new condition like box calf.
     
  5. Can't answer about corner wearing because I haven't experienced that (yet). Hope someone can provide the answer.
     
  6. my barenia bags have worn the same on the corners as on the rest of the bags -- i.e., darkening and marks. they haven't lost color the way box and some other leathers do.
