The Bordeaux-coloured Teinture Francaise shoe dye by Saphir (50ml) is ideal for colouring leather, nubuck and suede, and for creating a patina.
The Saphir Bordeaux-coloured shoe dye tints leather and can also be used to imitate a natural, aged leather patina when coupled with a purple or red base colour as this will sharpen the colour contrast while preserving the undertones. This dye is a flagship product and comes highly recommended by shoemakers and fine leather lovers alike. It is sold in a set that includes a pair of gloves and a cotton wick applicator.
Use the dye in a well-ventilated area and cover your clothing as well as any valuable objects to prevent them from getting stained. You may wish to use the dye alone, or mix it with other dyes for a more personalised leather colour. If the dye matches the original colour of the leather, it can cover scratched areas to restore an attractive overall look. Whether you use the Saphir Teinture Francaise dye in specific spots or over an entire leather surface, we strongly recommend applying the product only after the leather has been cleaned or has had its colour removed. This will prevent dust particles from clogging the pores of the leather. Always test a bit of the dye on a hidden area to determine whether it produces the results you want. If you are satisfied with the results, apply a thin and even first coat of dye and allow it to dry for at least one hour to see the final colour. If it is not intense enough after an hour, do not hesitate to add other coats to deepen the Bordeaux shade, but be mindful of the one-hour drying time required after each coat. When the desired colour is achieved, you will need to complete the dyeing process by nourishing and protecting your leather shoes or other leather accessories as they become very dry when cleaned or dyed. The shoe cream will enhance the colour of the patina and soften the leather. For hard leather Bordeaux-coloured items, complete the process with a shoe polish to waterproof the leather and give it a shine.
Store your Teinture Francaise shoe dye in a cool, dry place and tightly close the bottle cap to ensure proper conservation.
