Leather Patinas, The Beauty of Ageing!


Our hand made leather leash develops a magnificent patina with age!

Here at Bas and Lokes we design and create luxurious, beautiful hand crafted leather accessories! We use a wide range of colours and all of our pieces are made by hand and from the finest Italian leather. We wanted to share a couple of recent pictures with you of some of our products that become even more beautiful with age!

This is the beauty of the ‘patina’ process! A process whereby leather, and other materials develop a film produced my oxidation and other factors over time! A process that makes your leather accessories look better and better!

But how can you promote the process of the patina on products that you already own?

You will need expose them to sunlight, water, and allow your skin oils to rub onto the leather with daily use. Handle your wallet, bag and watch strap and maybe leave your wallet out in the sun or walk in the rain with your leather umbrella… (ahem!)

We’re launching our new website tomorrow, it’s going to look better than our old one, and show off our latest collection for all to see! I guess you could call it our ‘Online Patina’!

Cheers for reading and be sure to check out our new website
