Where did the patina come from?

Patina was discovered by shoe repair masters, who conveyed to things the patina effect for a fresh and new look.

Over time, the patina gained widespread use, and not only shoes, but also bags, belts and other leather products became desirable and in demand. Now this method has gained fame in the field of fashion.

Types of Patina

Patination can be of two types: factory and authorial. According to the founder of the “Dandy Shoe Care” workshop, Alexander Nurulaev:“As a rule, sad people with limited knowledge in the field of shoe coloring are required to work in factories, who are required to dye a large number of shoes every day. They have neither the time nor the desire to create a work of art.” The author’s patina takes a lot of time, but the results are extremely pleasing.
