Burnishing is the process of making footwear look distinguished and aged.

Using a Burnishing Mop in circular movements it creates a marbled, shaded look to the leather. The process of burnishing brings out the highs and the lows of the shoe, strongly focusing on drawing out the depth of the leather. Each individual shoe takes time to perfect, having to burnish the entire shoe with particular care and attention being paid to the cap and counter.

This intricate job requires just the right amount of pressure and time, otherwise, it can appear patchy, or not textured enough.
