Horween Shell Cordovan Leather Bi-Fold Wallet
These wallets are handcrafted in the USA, using Shell Cordovan leather, from the famed Horween Tannery located here in our hometown of Chicago. Made in limited numbers, these handcrafted wallets will last years, and develop their own unique patina, depending on your use, and oiling of the leather.
Horween Genuine Shell Cordovan® is the art of tanning at its finest. More than just a color, it is a very specific leather, from a particular part of a horsehide. 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
