Handmade Patina Leather Watch Strap

If you are looking for a Patina leather strap then you probably already know what a Patina is. Or while browsing through a variety of leather goods you might have stumbled across the term ‘leather patina’ and wondered what it means?

What is Leather Patina?

Put simply, leather patina is the process of aging on leather. Every leather is unique with natural features and characters. They age beautifully with time and eventually develop their own unique patina, a gorgeous vintage finish that leather develops as it ages. Natural leather patina develops with age, the sun, natural body oils and the environment. It is a natural chemical process. Just like an older wine is, the more tertiary flavours it will have.

Which leather is best for showing patina?

Natural vegetable-tanned full grain leather in particular develops the best patina over time. This is because it absorbs the world’s elements over time, be that movement, sunlight, heat or the natural oils that your body produces. Full grain leather is the highest grade of leather and of the absolute best quality. It is considered the most durable and robust form of leather as it is made from the strongest part of the animal skin. In addition to this durability, it is often recognised for its attractive quality due to the close grain pattern. Totally undoctored, unlike split leather, it retains the natural markings of the cow. This is why, when it is also naturally rather than chemically tanned, it develops the perfect patina. All of this contributes to creating a characterful leather.
