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.

French dye 500 ml dark brown

Used to dye initially natural and stained suede ankle boots. I am delighted with the result, they have taken on a tawny color and the stains are hidden.

Suede dye

Excellent product, just missing the accessory to apply it which exists in small formats

Augustin R. Verified buyer Paris, Apr 14 2021
Second youth in my shoes

This product allowed me to give a second lease of life to my shoes by going from a tan/snuff shade to a dark brown. It's easy to use (bring a brush) and it will save you from paying €70 (price asked in a famous shoe repair shop in Batignolles where it was explained to me that this product was not sold to individuals...) Be careful, the small bottle from the same brand was not enough for me to dye the shoes, hence the purchase of this larger one, more than enough (I have enough left for at least 2 or 3 pairs)

Saphir Dark Brown Shoe Dye for Patina Design 500ml

The dark brown Teinture Francaise shoe dye by Saphir (500ml) is ideal for colouring smooth leather, nubuck and suede or for creating a patina.

The dark brown Teinture Francaise shoe dye colours entire leather articles, whether they come in large sizes such as an armchair, or small sizes such as jackets, coats or accessories. This dye is particularly popular among lovers of fine leather not only because it is easy to use, but also because it provides a wide range of possibilities for personalising leather items. Saphir shoe dyes are most commonly used for creating a leather patina that imitates the effects of time on a leather colour.

Use the Saphir Teinture Francaise black leather dye only on leather that has been cleaned or that has had its colour removed and make sure that you are in a well-ventilated area. Dab the dye on damaged areas on the leather to mask scratches and restore the natural beauty of the leather. The large-sized, 500ml bottle contains enough product for dyeing large leather items including jackets and even armchairs. Always begin by testing a bit of the dye on a hidden area to determine whether it produces the colour you want. This will avoid any potential disappointment as leather varies widely from one item to another and thus reacts differently during the dyeing process. If you are satisfied with the results, apply an even first coat of the dye and allow it to dry for at least one hour to assess the true colour. For a darker brown, do not hesitate to add additional coats of the dye, but be mindful of the one-hour drying time required after each coat. Once you obtain the desired colour, you will need to complete the dyeing process with a tinted shoe cream to intensify the colour, or a neutral shoe cream to maintain the exact shade obtained.

Store your Saphir dark brown shoe dye in a cool, dry place to maximise its shelf life, and remember to tightly close the bottle cap to avoid wastage.
