    • Is each Shell Cordovan Wallet unique?
      Horween Leather's Shell Cordovan is an extremely durable leather processed by hand in Chicago, USA. The natural dyeing and finishing process results in a beautiful leather with deep colors. Each wallet's color, and the Horween Leather stamps on the wallet's interior, will be unique to the piece of Shell Cordovan used.
    • Will the leather change over time?
      Shell Cordovan is an extremely resilient leather that develops a beautiful patina with time. If desired, the mirror-like luster can be brought back over and over with careful polishing. The extremely dense fiber structure of Shell Cordovan means it does not crease or crack like other leather.
    • What makes Shell Cordovan Special?
      This leather is produced by only a few tanneries in the word, following a process pioneered by Horween in 1905. Steeped in vegetable liquors then dyed, glazed and polished by hand, Shell Cordovan leather takes over six months to tan.
