Cordovan Leather Strap - Dress Clasp - 20mm - XS


Our Italian Shell Cordovan represents the pinnacle of the art of tanning leather. An equine leather made from the fibrous flat muscle (or shell) beneath the hide on the rump, these irregular oval shells are tanned, stuffed, shaved, and then polished – a process that takes at least six months.  

Each shell is slowly steeped in vegetable tannins before being placed onto glass frames to dry before dyes are rubbed by hand to achieve the signature aniline finish. Finally, the shells are hand glazed for a rich, glossy look and feel.
