Weird question about bandeau on Speedy handles.

I was thinking of getting a bandeau for my speedy b 25 in azur. Do most people get two to do both handles? Would that be overkill? Or just one for one handle? I've seen it tied in a bow and it's adorable, I just wondered about the handle situation. TIA!

Oh! Also- is there any chance of color transfer from the bandeau? I was thinking of the rock n roses bandeau which is really vibrant and wondered if it would affect my brand new vachetta. If it got wet or even dry if it would leave color transfer. Thanks!

I am not sure about colour transfer but if your speedy is speedy b with a strap, you will have different patina between your handle and strap since you cover them up with bandeau. Other than that I personally would choose both handles wrapped because I don't want to end up with one handle have lighter patina than the other one.

Not sure about colour transfer either, although I doubt it would get so soaking wet that this could actually occur.
But just a thought: when you get sick of this wrapped handle look, because we all get sick of things, you will have two of the same bandeau's.
I would stick with one and tie it in a bow!

Yep, I think that's the best option. I really don't want one lighter than the other or lighter than the rest of the vachetta!
