So, vachetta leather - What exactly is this type of leather? Many people have asked us questions on vachetta leather. We thought we will do a bit of digging.
Vachetta leather is premium cowhide leather that has a buttery soft appearance that can feel really good when brushed against your skin.
It is an untreated and unprotected leather that’s usually used in the trimming of luggage and handbags. Many girls and ladies would know; this leather is popularised by Louis Vuitton. The leather, unlike others, is not treated with moisturising oils and coated with sealant that offers the leather some degree of protection from the elements, cleaners and chemicals.
As it is untreated, it is susceptible to water and stains, and most things it comes into contact with including rapid aging and drying. But the good part is vachetta leather can be darkened in shade and develop into what we called a patina, a honey golden colour that forms over time and regular use. This is what makes vachetta leather unique.
Since vachetta leather needs a rather high level of preventive measure to protect it from elements it is susceptible to, you may like some tips and tricks to care, clean and condition your vachetta leather handbag.
