linea pelle handbags are made of washed Italian leathers. animal skin is inherently prone to occasional blemishes or bruising, making each item truly unique. this tends to show more with light to medium colors and adds to the casual vintage look of our washed leather handbags. our handbags are also treated with a post-construction enzyme wash, which creates a natural weathered color look and fraying on the edges. please see our customer care section for more details on caring for your new linea pelle product.
