Newly Arrived Navy Blue Shell Cordovan:

Newly Arrived Navy Blue Shell Cordovan – I am very happy to announce the arrival of our Newest color Shell Cordovan from our Italian supplier. I have already built a very nice strap for my customer’s Jaeger LeCoultre Reverso in the Fagliano strap style (this is the first time that I have mimicked this style) that I am also happy to share some photos of.  We had first begun offering Shell Cordovan in a blog back in June 2018, however, since I don’t believe that this blog post got enough attention, I am also re-stating that post here.

Excited to Announce the Arrival of Shell Cordovan Leather for the First Time!!

Shell Cordovan Leather – On our latest visit to the Lineapelle Leather trade fair in Milan this past Spring, one of the items on our agenda was to finally nail down a source for Shell Cordovan that we really are proud to offer our customers.  I must admit that having seen many examples of Shell Cordovan over the years, I have never been that bowled over by this leather and had always thought that it was unjustifiably overblown by hype, especially given that the price can sometimes approach the cost of Alligator per centimeter.  But, after seeing the beautiful leathers pictured here, I’ve become a convert.

The Mahogany Shell has sold out!

The newest leather from our latest Italian Tannery supplier is also one of our most requested leathers. Shell Cordovan is famous for its wonderful waxy finish, depth of color, and excellent durability. Our new Shell Cordovan has been tanned for us in Northern Italy using age-old vegetable tanning leather techniques and a hand-rubbed finish to provide a depth of color that is unmatched by any other tannery.  The Quality of these leathers is incredibly good, and the colors and finishing are absolutely second to none.  Produced by a tannery with nearly 6 decades of tanning experience in a region with a centuries-long heritage of leather tanning.

Having considered Shell Cordovan leathers from other Italian Tanneries, as well as from the US, Japan, England, etc., these hides are the ones that Andrea and I fell in love with for the depth of color and for their beautiful hand-rubbed finishing. I hope these photos will show you why.
