Each piece of this unique leather takes over 6 months for skilled craftsmen to produce, and it will last a lifetime with proper care.

Due to the natural characteristics of the leather there may be some shade variation from the image shown.

Ethically handmade with traditional tooling and using skills and techniques that have been passed down through generations. The edges are hand dyed and burnished for durability.

Made from genuine Horween Shell Cordovan.

Shell Cordovan is renowned for its extremely hardwearing properties, and was originally manufactured by Horween in 1905 for use as razor strops due to its durability.

Considered to be the finest leather in the world, it is also one of the most sought after leathers in the world and in constant short supply as only limited quantities are produced.

The process the shells go through takes a total of 6 months, and is extremely labour intensive. Each equine hide is hung on frames and pit tanned using Horween’s own unique tanning solution, which includes tree barks and resins.  The hides are moved around regularly to ensure each hide is evenly tanned, then after 30 days they are removed and the hides ‘shaved’ by hand to reveal the ‘shell’ membrane. The shells are then pit tanned in stronger solutions for a further 30 days, to ensure both the outer and inner fibres are penetrated by tannins. The shells then undergo various processes for a further four months, including the ‘hot stuffing’ of various fats, oils and greases into the leather, and also hand polishing to achieve the high gloss the leather is famed for.

Size of the card Holder is 100mm (4”) x 74mm (2.9”).
