Description

The most iconic colour to come out of the Horween Tannery has to be this one. For the many fans of Shell Cordovan, this colour is a must have. Stunning rich tone that you can pair perfectly with your Edward Green or Alden shoes. All straps taper to a 16mm buckle except 22mm which tapers to 18mm.

Horween Shell Cordovan

For the last 115 years and spanning five generations the Horween Tannery in Chicago has been making Shell Cordovan. It’s an Equine leather which comes from a very specific part of the animal, the rump. Of the specialist tanneries around the world that can produce this leather, Horween is considered to be the very best.

Shell Cordovan has a very tight membrane and no grain structure, in fact when you run your hand along this leather in both directions it feels like glass. The irregular shaped shells are tanned, hot stuffed, shaved and polished, a process taking at least six months. They’re then subjected to vegetable tanning using bark extracts and other natural dyes. The final process involves the hand application of dyes and glazing to create that trademark deep glossy aniline finish. It takes skill and years of experience to create this beautiful leather.

Horweens traditions and dedication to quality is something that we here at Molequin also aspire to. Using Horween Shell Cordovan® for this collection means that our customers will get to experience it’s incredible qualities, from the way it softens and patines to the subtle change of colour over time. It really is like no other.

Care Instructions

A little care can go a long way in not only protecting your strap but also extending it’s life. The first and most important rule is to make sure that you avoid water at all costs. Water is the mortal enemy of leather and will stain, discolour and weaken the fibres. So no showering, swimming or exercising while wearing your strap.

Like a good pair of shoes, if you get the chance to rotate your straps then this will allow you to enjoy them a little longer.

When you’re not wearing your strap, then we suggest storing it in a cool dry place away from direct sunlight and excessive heat.
