Distressed Leather

Distressed leather, also known as Pull Up leather, is a full grain, aniline dyed oiled leather. When distressed, the oils cause the colouring to migrate and become lighter in the distressed areas.

Still confused?

No problem, its confusing stuff.
Distressed leather is designed to allow simulated marks of age and wear.
So you can take a brand new wallet, scratch it and bend it, and make it look vintage, like it was your grandfather’s wallet.

Magic Repairs

Ok, so distressed leather allows you to scratch and bend the wallet, and it also allows you to add oils back into the leather, instantly repairing the leather.
When you are scratching a distressed leather wallet, you’re really just displacing fibers and oil. By massaging the area affected with a little oil, you smooth area back out making the scratches disappear. This is the awesome benefit of owning a wallet made from full grain leather.

They scratch easy but they repair just as easy. You can do this will leather products that have pigmented finishes. If you scratch your designer handbag, its scratched forever.

Changing Colors

“Why wallet doesn’t look the same color as the picture”.
Your wallet won’t look the same color tomorrow. Distressed leather continuously changes color, darker to lighter, depending on the oil content of the leather.
Ifs dried out or distressed, its lighter in color. If you add a bunch of oil (like coconut) it will get much, much darker in color.
Overtime, the leather will get gradually darker because you are using it everyday, constantly touching it, adding the oils from your hands and this will lead to the formation of the patina.


Distressed leather will absorb the oils from your hands and this natural process will cause the leather to form a patina over time. A patina is a glossy layer that will make the wallet look even better.
The leather used to make this wallet will only get better and better with age.
