Photographing Dooney Bags with so many rich lovely colors is a challenge. Lighting and settings can affect the shade or colors. We endeavor to keep the colors as close as possible to the actual purse, in our dooney and bourke Vintage bag pictures.
Dooney AWL Bags are Saturated with Color. For their vintage All-Weather Leather Collections, they used a signature natural drum-dyeing process to color the leather.
Dooney All-Weather-Leather Color Process:
After tanning, Dooney & Bourke hides are placed in huge oak drums filled with rich natural dyes and left to soak for days.
The dyes slowly permeate the leather to produce a rich, lasting color.
Just as stain soaks wood and allows its grain to show through, drum dyeing reveals the natural markings and extraordinary character of the hide.
Dooney and Bourke drum-dyeing process took longer than conventional spraying, but Dooney's commitment to quality created a superior finish.
This process results in slight variations of color.
All-Weather Leather Handbags can be found in 17 different Colors with British Tan trim, matching Dooney's Tan Harness Leather trim, and 22 colors including all collections made.
