Additional Details

One look at this aniline dyed shell cordovan and you’ll be mesmerized by its attractive sheen, refined look and exceptional feel. When you want wallets, money clips, and other personal accessories that truly stand out in a crowd, this artisan quality leather is for you. This shell cordovan is a rare leather produced in Japan by Leder Ogawa from a special fiber layer that’s only found in the hides taken from the hindquarters of heavier breeds of European stallions. The glazing, aniline dyeing, and waxing process these hides go through ensures timeless appeal that just gets better with age.


Rarer and more labor intensive than leather made from cowhide, shell cordovan is made from the hindquarters of a horsehide. Fine men’s shoe designers have a long history of selecting this high end leather for their wares. With exceptional durability, pores that are invisible to the naked eye, and water resistance, shell cordovan develops a beautiful patina over time. “Shell” in the name references the hindquarter of a horsehide that has been split horizontally to remove the grain while “Cordovan” is derived from the city of Cordoba in Spain, a center for leather tanning with its roots stemming from the 8th century.
