I just wanted to start this week off with something lighthearted. You may think I'm crazy, but I can tell a little bit about a person by their choice of leathers. I'll start: box, Barenia, vache natural, peau porc, and porosus. Why?: They all develop a patina with time and are considered classic leathers by Hermes. What does that say about me?: I like the classics and am patient as each of these leathers takes time to develop their rich mirror-like patina. I'm also not afraid of the scratches because I've learned that this is part of the aging process with these leathers. I also have a yearning for things past. I chose these leathers because I've seen them on vintage items and they just grew gorgeous over the years.
