Yes, I think it's just inevitable, when you use a lightish coloured bag a lot, that the parts you hold will darken.

I wouldn't worry too much about it, TBH - think of it as patina! :biggrin:

Certainly don't over-clean it - you may damage the leather and/or remove the original colour.

no it does happen - despite our best efforts sometimes - you are lucky it is on a brown bag and is not hugely obvious - I honestly wouldn't worry.
