Exterior of the aforementioned Mysore-lined card case.

I've seen some amazing patina's on wallets made out of Barenia. I don't know if it's your pictures or my monitor, but the shade looks darker than I expected. Most Barenia goods I have seen are close to that classic shade Hermes uses like this. What shades does it come in?

@Jr Mouse

I cant speak specifically just for Parker's Barenia (i have a piece on order but not on hand yet).

I think there is some variation in shades from batch to batch of the Haas golden Barenia which is the one we are regerring to. There are also others that use the term Barenia from other Tanneries which IMO is misleading as Barenia (Novonappa) was the leather that was made known by Hermes and produced by Haas. There are other colors of Haas barenia that are produced and i have seen the golden/cognac and black most often. Other colors that i have seen are taupe, navy/blue, and a lighter colored one i have seen called as "oak". Again the most common colors available are the gold/cognac and black. There are also some other variations if you look on the Hermes website.

Lighting plays a big part in how it looks, and also how long the leather has been in stock and how much it has been handled as it develops patina very quickly IMO. I think Parker has some other pics on his IG of the same card holder which look much lighter.

For example on that chester mox pic you showed the barenia looks very light to me. I actually have the same chester mox barenia belt for about a week now.
I posted a pic in that thread before it was worn. I just took another pic today under light and without. Looks much darker. I also have a sample of barenia in the pic sent from another craftsman (not parker or Bellanie) which looks even darker probably bc it has been around longer and handled more and had more patina.

Hope this helps. Just a POV from someone who has seen and handled a few Barenia products but not a leather expert.
All the colors i have mentioned are specifically reffering to Haas produced Barenia/Novonappa. Not "Barenia" produced by other tanneries

Also sorry for the belt still being on the pants. I was about to put them on and was too lazy to remove

@coldinboston pretty much nailed it.

 

But I went on a hunt for reference pics. A couple of my cardholder in a different lightings, an Hermes Curiosite Bracelet straight from their website, a Kelly watch straight from their website, and an apple watch stock photo. 

 

I think they all look like they have the same 'tone' to them, but the variation is quite interesting. Also, Hermes' choice of leather on that Kelly watch actually included some imperfections, which is why I added it (kind of rare to see). I personally don't find veining to be less appealing, but this shows some of the character of Barenia that makes it special.

Also just received this gator cardholder which unfortunately was quickly confiscated by my wife who is going to use it for business cards.

I guess I just have to order another one....

Still have a lot of it left!

 

 

Starting to run a bit short on large, case-sized panels, though.
