The Apollo is handcrafted using a full grain vintage leather so every scratch and imperfection will wear in with the wallet and help it develop a unique patina that tells a story of where you have been and what adventures life has taken you on.
We believe in preserving the matte quality our leather has to offer so we do not put a protective coating on our leather. While this means your wallet may get scratched easier than an average-grade leather wallet you can find at your local superstore, it also means that your wallet will develop a beautiful, exclusive-to-you patina and wear.
For times where you have a particular scratch you’d like to buff out, or if you would like the story of your wallet to start from the beginning we do have leather cream tins for purchase here: https://andarwallets.com/products/leather-cream
