Horween | One-Piece Shell Cordovan Belt

June 8, 2013




Leather in its rarest form just showed up. Taking 5 years to accumulate long enough Cordovan strips to produce a collection of belts from a continuous piece of leather, Horween is offering a limited run for a very few lucky patrons.

From Horween, “Most Shell Cordovan belts that are available are made from 3 cut straps that are then joined together. The reason being that most shells measure less than 18-20″ from end to end.  We receive a bare handful of shells every year where both shells are joined in the middle. Most of these shells are rough in the middle and are must be cut into two pieces as is typical in our production. Of this handful, a few yield long, smooth shells that are suitable for a strap long enough to make a one piece belt.”
