Shell Cordovan(Rocado) - Brown Leather Watch Strap

SKU: 49

Leather: Genuine Shell Cordovan from the Rocado S.R.L. tannery in Tuscany, Italy

Why you'll love this leather: Genuine shell cordovan is simply phenomenal. It is 4-5 times more expensive than most leathers for a reason. Shell takes up to 3 months to produce and the raw ingredient is very rare. Shell cordovan only comes from a small layer of dense, flat muscle tissue under a horse's rump. A single horse yields one "shell" from each side of the buttocks that is approximately 2.5 sqft in size. Shell is perfect for shoes, watch straps, wallets, and other small accessories that will accumulate a lot of wear. Shell is extremely durable and naturally scratch resistant. It is easy to maintain with it's smooth, tight grain surface that is very clean since it comes from underneath the horse's outer layer of skin. Rocado's shell cordovan has a beautiful gloss finish. Since shell is 100% vegetable tanned, this leather will look even better with age as it builds a unique patina.
