Saphir Vernis Rife Patent Leather Cleaner is the go-to product from some of the world’s finest designers including Hermes, Louis Vuitton and John Lobb.

Patent leather is a leather coating that has a high gloss finish. The coating process was introduced to the United States and improved by inventor Seth Boyden in 1818, with commercial manufacture beginning in 1819. Boyden’s process used a lacquer coating that was based on linseed oil. Modern patent leather usually has a plastic coating.
