Patina + Antiquing
The leather used for each Ann Howell Bullard handbag is a beautiful, natural, raw, veg-tanned cowhide. It is completely naked and unfinished, and over time and with use it will become softer and deepen in color.
Mimicking bits of raw canvas left exposed in Impressionist paintings (take a peek the next time you're in a museum!), old record sleeves, and antique heirlooms, this leather was chosen specifically because of the way it reflects stories from life, as it is lived.
