HORWEEN SHELL CORDOVAN (CHIPS) - #8 - 1.0/2.0mm (3.0/5.0oz)

Genuine Horween Shell Cordovan is the art of tanning at its finest. More than just a colour, it is a very specific leather, from a particular part of a horsehide. The two circular cuts (shells) taken from the posterior. The irregular oval shaped shells are tanned, stuffed, shaved, and then polished – a process taking at least six months.  Each shell is slowly steeped in gentle vegetable liquors. The shells are genuine hot stuffed then slicked onto glass frames to dry.  Each shell is hand curried and shaved by highly skilled artisans to expose the shell. Dyes are hand rubbed on for a deep aniline finish. Finally, the shells are hand glazed to achieve the rich, glossy look and feel prized by fine craftsmen. Sold for luxury footwear and leathergoods.

We are the UK agents for Horween. For larger quantities, please contact us to sample.
