Hi,

I am looking at buying a purse that is trimmed in Vachetta Tan leather. Its very pale.

Do all Vachetta leather products darken over time?

Many thanks,

do you like LV...? I was thinking maybe the noe GM, its trimmed in leather on the sides, the staps, the top rim, and the bottom is all leather..and yes over time some leathers does get a little darker...

Yeah, I think they do all get darker. Obviously the LV vachetta is a good example. But I also had a Hayden Harnett bag in vachetta that got darker. Originally when I bought it, I thought the color was vachetta, until I noticed after a day of being in the sun that the bag "tanned". I then realized it was naked leather.

I was disappointed and surprised to find that the vachetta on my Dior wallet darkened over time, and so I assume they all do..
