About a month ago, we told you that we had noticed that some of the new fish leather seemed to have changed colour.
We thought we would try a test. We took a piece and wrapped half of it in light proof cardboard, sealed the edges with tape, and left it on a windowsill. The sun hasn't been particularly strong these past couple of weeks, but we thought we'd just check in. Here it is.
There does appear to be a faint difference from the left and the right side. (Where my finger is marks the border.) Thing is - the right side, the lighter side - was the side that was protected from the light.
So - we have something that fades in the darkness.
More likely - the other side darkened - but the fact remains, that although the colour shift is subtle, it was only a month.
I would say that this product is not intended for heirloom pieces, although it is fine for items only intended for a single season's wear.
