Your new bag will develop a patina over time – just as any other natural material does. This gives the product its distinctive character. Cotton canvas naturally fades, especially black. This is due to the UV rays.

How do I stop the fading?
You can’t. Fading of colour is a natural thing especially if the material is cotton. It gives the bag its character and it doesn’t lessen its value, nor ruin its function. You can slow fading down though by leaving your bag in shaded areas when not being worn. If you’re planning to be in the sun for a long time, or during the summer, we suggest to wear our light-coloured bags.

Piñatex is an innovative and natural material which ages in its own way. The surface will soften with use and the edges might show use, but all in all – it will pretty much look the same.
