    Earthly Leather Design will only dye the backing/underside of products as a special request.

We have never had a problem, with normal wear, but accidents do happen.
    Earthly Leather Design takes multiple precautions to prevent bleeding.
    1) We only dye the backing/underside of products that remains visible while being worn.
    2) We only apply one coat of coloring to the backing/underside of products. So it won't be dark black, but a soft black, more like a very dark gray.
    3) We thoroughly seal every dyed backing/underside of products multiple times, just as we do the front/topside.
