People buy natural leather cases because they love how these items age in with a weathered look with regular uses. This darker weathered leather look is called “Patina” and it is the signature of high-quality leather.
Natural leather is a porous organic matter. It absorbs oils, moisture, heat, sunlight and other elements in the environment. And over time, the leather items develop a beautiful tan with a range of darker shades through uses.
Patina develops better on less processed leather. For example, raw leather and vegetable tanned leather develop a patina much more easily than chrome tanned leather. And top-grain leather also develops a better patina than split-leather and so-called genuine leather.
The more you use your leather item, the faster it develops a patina. Since most phone cases are handled frequently, it usually takes a short time to start seeing the patina. Another factor is the color of the leather. The lighter the color, the easier it is to obtain a patina.
If you wish to slow down the patina process, you can follow our leather care guide to regularly clean and condition your leather case to preserve the original look of your leather phone case.
