Yes, we use different types of leather throughout different collections. This is because with every different collection, we like to radiate a style which suits the collection. The leather type is clearly indicated per collection in the product details. There are many types of leather, but to make it easy, we explain 2 types of leather that we use the most; leather with an open structure (Nubuck) and leather with a closed structure (Full Grain).
Leather with an open structure means that the top layer of the leather is lightly sanded, giving it a more robust and sturdy look. However, that also means that it’s more sensitive to scratches and stains. This type of learning is also often referred to as Nubuck.
Leather with a closed structure means that it is the top layer of the leather. This top layer can also be a little more sensitive to scratches and stains when you leave it untreated. If this is the case, it will be indicated in the product description and you can take a sturdier appearance into account. We also work with full grain leather which has a more covered top layer, so that it has less sense of scratches and stains and therefore means a more even appearance. This type of leather is also referred to as “full grain leather”.
With all types of leather, and therefore also with our bags, you can bear in mind that it will become more beautiful after use – as is often the case with natural products. Furthermore, we always recommend that you use our maintenance spray that can be found in the webshop.
