Cordovan Wallet


Barrett Alley from Texas has added Horween Shell Cordovan leather products to his collection. Shell Cordovan, made of horsehide, is one of the most expensive leathers. It is made from the subcutaneous layer of skin under the hindquarters of the animal. The two sides of the rump, referred to as shells, are the parts famous for their softness and durability.

Its tanning process takes a long time, but the result is beautiful. A dark, rich, burgundy color which is really specific to this type of leather. Seen on the picture are the Shell Cordovan Disciple Wallet, the Devilish wallet and the Valerie bracelet. All are far from cheap, but they do look priceless.
