Cordovan leather is essentially horse leather, but not every leather that comes from a horse is Cordovan. Only the so called shells or butts, which are the rear quarters of the horse are turned into Cordovan, hence the often used name Shell Cordovan.
Cordovan is an equine leather with a unique look coming from a very small back part of the horse. hide These hyper-resistant and flexible leathers require regular maintenance.
Clean, use Saphir Renovateur, apply Saphir Cordovan Cream Shoe Polish
Is also perfect for Crocodile, Alligator, Ostrich, and Cordovan leathers. Water-based formulation - no solvents. Rejuvenates leather through deep conditioning. What I like to do is clean and polish my Cordovan about twice a year. But, like all my shoes, I brush them before and after I wear them.
Saphir Cordovan leather cream
The Saphir Médaille d'Or Cordovan Cream Shoe Polish is an all-natural cream polish based on beeswax and carnauba with several other nutrient waxes and double the amount of pigment of ordinary polishes. It is formulated especially for high-quality cordovan leathers and does not contain turpentine.
Australian deer bone contains its own oils and, importantly, has rounded edges that protect leather from damage. Use the deer bone to eliminate creases. It is suggested to be used by a professional, because it can take some time to do, and can easily scratch the cordovan if not used correctly.
