  1. Hello! A couple months ago I made a post showing how I wasn’t unhappy that I had damaged leather replaced on my vintage montsouris backpack, and how the color of the patina leather and the parts with the new leather were so different. I got a lot of positive replies that said it looked just fine, but a few people told me it looked bad and I should sell the bag. Well I’ve moisturized it and got caught in the rain a few times, and it has darkened the new leather and they match much better now! I just want to show this in case anyone has vintage bag that they are thinking of replacing some of the leather one. So here is a before and after! Sorry if the lighting is bad!
