Saphir Beauté Du Cuir Teinture Francaise (50ml)

Liquid dye for all types of smooth leather, suede, nubuck and velvety leather. A penetrating formula based on alcohol, the dyes can be used as a base coat or in combination with other colours to create different shades. All colours can be mixed together.

For best results, it is best to prepare the leather with Decapant (leather stripper). After which, it is essential to apply finishing products, especially creams and waxes to seal the colours.
