I was at the beauty salon and a woman complemented me on my bag. It was the manhattan. She also made the comment of how she has never seen a bag patina so evenly. All my bags have an even patina. I said well I use it? I didn't really know what to say as I don't really know why all my bags are so even. I wonder if this is perhap because, even with my handbags, I rarely hold them by the handle. Instead I keep them in the crook of my arm. I think the oils and such of your hands cause the darker spots, right? I have a friend who has a bag that is lightly patina(ed) except the part where she holds at her hand and its a dark brown (looks kinda weird actually). Anyhoo, It just got me curious-how do your bags patina!?!
