The SOFOLK method for leather care and renovation was developed in 1990. It is directly inspired by the work of the leather tannery since we use the same raw materials (oil, wax and varnish).
Our products can be applied on any leather (cow, calf, sheep, goat, lamb, pig, suede), and on any finish (aniline, semi-aniline, pigmented). Only brown lamb can cause problems (not irreparable) when applying the Nourishing Oil.
FAQ: FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
Do you have a video tutorial that shows the cleaning products and their use ?
Below are some videos that we invite you to watch.
Should I apply the silky leather polish before or after the nourishing oil?
In the case of a renovation with recolouring, we recommend applying the Nourishing Oil approximately 30 days after the last coat of Varnish.
In leather care, we recommend to apply the Nourishing Oil before the Silk Varnish.

All water-based products will tend to bubble. These should be crushed and removed before the varnish has dried. If it is too late, you will need to sand lightly in the required areas and reapply the varnish..
Is Silky Varnish dangerous?
It all depends on the packaging you decide to buy.
The silk varnish supplied in a can is water-based and does not require a hazard symbol. It is therefore not irritating and can be used on the skin. It is of course advisable to protect the eyes and not to ingest it.
The varnish delivered in aerosol cans is called "solvent-based" and contains dangerous products. The product should be applied in a ventilated area.
If I apply Nourishing Oil to my sofa or car seat, will I stain my clothes?

If all the oil you put in does not penetrate, it means that the leather does not need it anymore. Wipe off the excess with a cloth. Note that once the food oil has
penetrated the leather, it never comes out..
I have a leather cream that I use for care. Can I use it?
We do not recommend the use of creams. Food oil is 100% natural and penetrates deep into the leather, while creams remain on the surface and tend to
