Jo's Note: "A breathtaking Chestnut Dooney Shoulder Bag. Discover one of the most buttery smooth leathers Dooney & Bourke has to offer. Florentine leather is a newer but now-iconic Dooney & Bourke collection first introduced in Spring 2011. This popular leather style is crafted from rich Vacchetta leather, and offers one exceptional characteristic: it transforms the longer you wear it. Over time, Florentine develops a patina, meaning its color deepens and grows richer. Looking at two Florentine bags side by side, you’d be able to tell which has been worn for longer (hint: it’s the darker one).
Like a fine wine, Florentine leather’s softness gets better with age. So go ahead and take this bag with you through the decades; you’ll be glad you did! As an authentic leather, Florentine leather offers a certain level of durability you can count on to go the distance. Still, proper care should be taken to preserve the life and quality of the handbag (as is the case with any handbag). Unlike a pebbled leather bag, minor abrasions or marks will be more visible, but can be removed or lessened in appearance with a soft cloth and gentle buffing."
CARE: HOW DO YOU CARE FOR A FLORENTINE LEATHER BAG?
Since Florentine leather is not explicitly treated for water repellency, it should be protected around water. Although the leather will darken if it becomes wet, rest assured the damp spot will return to its normal color once dry. Thanks to Florentine leather’s natural patina that grows darker over time, these wet spots will become less noticeable. Since the leather has a slightly waxed surface, wiping down your bag is a bit easier.
