TAN or DARWIN leather ?

  1. Which one do you prefer and why ? Merci.
     
  2. I'm interested in this answer too. What type of leather is Tan? Is it Darwin?
     
  3. I've never heard of 'Tan' as a type of Mulberry leather.
     
  4. Hi, don't know if this will help! Mulberry have just renamed their Darwin leather Natural tanned leather, it is exactly the same as Darwin but helps people understand the nature of the leather- that it ages/marks but remains gorgeous just the same!
     
  5. Oh, thanks for that Scottish Girl, I hadn't realised. Although now I think about it, I did notice a couple of their bags with new leather names. Do you know what 'tumble grain' used to be - I'm wondering if it was the 'glove'?
     
  6. Sorry alycat don't know about tumble grain but will ask around and post if I find out.:yes:
     
  7. Thank you!
     
  8. Hi , tumble grain is a little less grained than Darwin . Darwin is now named natural vegetable tanned , i have images of cabbages , much prefer the name darwin .The care card of tumble grained says "" this is a vegetable tanned leather . It is a natural product , which means you can see the individual grain pattern of the skin that makes each bag unique . It ages naturally and becomes more characteristic with use "" sounds similar to the care card of darwin .
