Red Leather Saddle?

Road Cycling “It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle.” -- Ernest Hemingway

Red Leather Saddle?

Purely asthetic question but here goes - My red Fizik Arione saddle has quite of bit of orange in the red shade and even a tinge of pink in some light. I would like it to match better with the nice darker red Fizik bar tape and some of the red annodized pieces on the frame. It does not seem to be darkening up with use - any hints (shoe repairmen weigh in?) for deepening this color? Newer Sella red saddles also have this color, it seems.

You might be able to dye it.
