How to use this product.

Advice before use: sit in a ventilated room to use the dye and remember to protect your work surface to avoid staining it.

Always apply the dye to leather that has been stripped with a stripper specially designed for smooth leather. Try the stripper on an inconspicuous area of your shoe to see how the leather reacts. If it reacts well, the patina will fade easily so you can continue. If it does not, we advise you to ask our team for advice before continuing.

After removing all the patina from your shoe and obtaining a matt leather, you can apply the dye. The dye is applied to the entire shoe using the tool provided or a brush. In order to achieve the desired colour, you need to apply several layers of dye in order to achieve a uniform result. When you have obtained the desired result, let your shoes dry for several hours. The next day, you can maintain your shoes by applying a Mr. Shoe polish cream rich in fatty substances to intensely nourish them and intensify the colour. Then finish with Monsieur Chaussure shoe polish paste with beeswax to make it shine and protect it from humidity.

Be sure to keep the dye in a dry room away from heat.

LAURENCE E. Verified buyer PERPIGNAN, Jun 10 2021

I have always known this brand through a bootmaker friend. In Paris I bought from him in his shop. Now I'm in the Province and I saw that you were selling on the internet so: order. Very good tracking of my package, product conform to arrival and what result on my leather bracelet, my sofa which has regained all its youth and my shoes which I was going to throw away because they were worn. Never disappointed, I swear by you and your products which respect the material. Everyone has their own job and you will remain my ally for life in all my projects because with your products nothing is impossible and everything finds a second youth. THANKS

Boots are renewed

I just got this dye, and already two pairs of once brown boots are beautiful black. One pair in particular was very damaged and discolored, and they are now wearable again. The process was easy and quick, and very fun! Thank you for great products.

Saphir Black Shoe Dye for Patina Design 500ml

The black Teinture Francaise shoe dye by Saphir (500ml) colours the full surface of any of your smooth leather, suede or nubuck items.

The Saphir shoe dye comes in a liquid form and colours leather items such as an armchair, or accessories including bags, belts and wallets. This economy-size bottle of dye contains enough dye for colouring all your black leather items. It also serves other purposes such as hiding scuffs and scratches on your black leather, or creating a patina that imitates the look of worn leather. Countless shoemakers use and recommend this dye as a must-have care product for any leather expert.

Use the Saphir Teinture Francaise only on leather that has been cleaned or that has had its colour removed to ensure that dust particles do not get trapped in when dyeing the leather. Always use the dye in a well-ventilated area and cover your clothing as well as any valuable objects to prevent them from getting stained. The dye can be applied on scratched areas of black leather items to mask the faded out colour and restore the natural beauty of the leather. The large 500ml bottle provides enough dye for treating specific spots as well as for dyeing entire articles made of black leather. Test a bit of the dye on a hidden area to determine whether it produces the colour you want. This is a very important step since leather varies widely from one item to another and thus reacts differently during the dyeing process. Once you are satisfied with the results, apply an even coat of dye over the entire surface of the shoe and allow it to dry for at least one hour before to assess the true colour. If the colour is not intense enough after an hour, do not hesitate to add additional coats of the dye, but be mindful of the one-hour drying time required after each coat. You will need to complete the dyeing process by nourishing the leather as it becomes very dry when cleaned, colour-stripped or dyed. Opt for a black shoe cream to soften the leather and sustain its new colour. For hard leather items, you can end with a shoe polish to waterproof the leather and give it a shine.

Store your shoe dye in a cool, dry place and remember to tightly close the bottle cap to avoid wastage.
