For the care and renovation of leather, the SOFOLK method was developed in 1990. It is directly inspired by the work of leather in tannery since we use the same raw materials (oil, wax and varnish).
With a few exceptions, our products can be applied on any leather (cow, cow, cow, sheep, goat, lamb, pig, suede), and on any finish (aniline, semi-aniline, pigmented). Only brown lamb can cause problems (not irreparable) when applying edible oil.
The leather consumes a small amount of oil originally incorporated by the tanner or the tawny owl at each traction applied.
Only specific oils, such as SOFOLK NOURISHING OIL, penetrate deeply into the fibres of the leather, restoring suppleness and tear resistance.
Use a clean washcloth and massage the previously cleaned leather. The Oil, once infiltrated into the fibres, never comes out, but it can take an entire night to penetrate depending on the condition of the leather. Do not use on lamb.
The Cleaning Oil contains 50% soap and 50% Nourishing oil. This product is ideal for customers who regularly care for any leather (except lamb). The product moisturizes the leather and gently cleanses it. Simply apply with a paper towel. For a more thorough cleaning of the leather we recommend our leather cleaner / stain remover.
Originally, all leathers were protected by a finishing varnish (matt, satin or gloss). These only resist several hundred frictions, which is why it is necessary to renew it at least once a year. PROTECTIVE WAX and SILK VARNISH are designed to protect the colouring and allow the leather to breathe. Do not apply to velvety leathers (Suede and Nubuck).
What is the difference between Protective Wax and Silky Varnish?
Protective wax is generally applied to beautiful patinated leather (club chair, chesterfield, shoes, etc.). It will give a "candle touch" and a satin finish.
For the other most common leathers, Silky Varnish will be perfectly suitable.
The oil penetrates deeply into the leather and never comes out. The penetration of the oil can take from 5 minutes to several days depending on the degree of saturation of the leather fibres. Excess product can be removed with a white paper towel.
Some colours will be slightly darker (as if the leather had been wet). The leather will regain its original colour after complete infiltration of the product.
Apply Nourishing Oil at least once a year, and 3 to 4 times a year on areas subject to high wear and tear, such as shoes, sofa seats and armrests or the driver's seat of a car. The product is best applied with a washcloth by massaging the leather. It is recommended to apply the Nourishing Oil BEFORE Sofolk Silk Coating.
Edible oil should also be applied after a recolouring or repair of the leather (about 30 days later)
