One of the features of waxed canvas, which has resulted in its increasing use in fashion accessories, is the attractive way in which it ages. Like full-grain leather, its appearance improves with age, making it a unique personal accessory. Scuffs, marks, and creases create a rich patina that continues to develop with age.
Waxed canvas makes an excellent pairing with leather: both materials have similar longevity, and both materials develop a rich patina with age. As a result, they are increasingly being paired in fashion accessories.
Leather is a natural product – and it ages. Also, it absorbs the traces of life around it – the natural body oils that your body produces, water, moisture, conditioner, dirt, dust, sunlight, heat – leather absorbs it all. Over time, it develops a sheen in some places – while some spots may see a relative darkening.
The more you handle your leather product, and the way you handle it also affects the nature and degree of patina that develops. If you use the product naturally – in a usual way with the usual standard of leather care, a patina is likely to come up gradually.
And yes, the scratches and scrapes that gather on the surface are also an integral part of the patina.
