Horween Shell Cordovan Bourbon Wallet
The Wallet has a new design, apart from the main bank notes compartment there is another open panel behind the card slots for your extra bills, or a second currency when you travel, which I think it will be very useful and still look very attractive. This design appears in both versions, but only one side though for the coin pocket version.
The outside is made from Horween Shell Cordovan, one of the oldest and most famous tannery in the world base in Chicago, USA. The leather has a very tight grain and high shine and very good colour depth. The inside is made from a cow hide – Buttero from Walpier also one of the most famous tanneries in Italy. It is entirely hand stitched with saddle stitch using a braided waxed polyester thread. It also has lacquered and polished edges to give a beautiful finish inspired by a Venetian Taxi boat. The wallet will age overtime and get softer with use but still retain its shape due to the very high quality of the leather used.
This wallet is beautifully crafted with an elegant design and full of functionality as all of the finest wallets should be.
For the interior this beautiful vegetable tanned Italian leather is termed ‘Full Grain’. It is the most expensive top section (or split) of the hide and each piece comes with its own unique patterns arising from: skin folds, scars, veins and other markings. It is not like the cheaper commercial leathers that strip off the top layer, and then emboss a pattern back on, to make the leather look evenly textured and coloured. Full grain leathers retain their original natural beauty and individuality unique to the animal it has been made from.
Regarding colours, I make every effort to photograph each item as accurately as possible but all leathers can look quite different under different lighting conditions e.g. when indoors or outdoors or when in sun and shade.
