My noe bb is about a year old and I haven't even used it that much. The vachetta on the purse itself has got the most beautiful patina, however the strap is still so light!! I noticed pretty early on that the purse was darkening at a different rate to the strap so I've been putting just the strap itself out in the sun but it just won't darken!!! Why is this happening and what can I do?!!!

There's even a fixed loop on the strap that has darkened to the same colour as the purse but the rest remains super light. Has anyone else had this happen???!

Our store manager told me, that just like our skins, the skins of the cows also tan differently from one to another. So there might be differences. And that some products might use skin from more than one cow. But this is a very noticable variance.

The same thing happened one of my Rivoli MM one of the handles would not patina i took it back to the store they said it was a defect and they are replacing all the vachetta for me.
Wow really?! I will take it in but the thought of starting the whole patina process all over again.... Argh

I just carried my Rivoli MM today and noticed that the back handle remained higher than the front handle. I wondered about this most of the day after that! So the store said that it was a defect? Which store was this, in the event that I get push-back, as this just seems so odd to me. TIA! :smile:

Oh no! I’m actually hoping my Noe BB never patinas. Good luck with yours, though! Hopefully LV can help you.
