      Rocado Shell Cordovan leather comes from Toscana, Italy. Rocado has been in business since 1982 and are one of the few remaining tanneries producing this special article. They are well known for their attention to detail, beautiful hides and rich colors. Rocado shell cordovan has a polished luster a nice subtle waxy feel. These combined with its dense, tight fibers lend lend itself to leather goods that need to withstand everyday wear and tear

      Shell cordovan (or cordovan) is a rare, world-famous leather made of a specific layer of hide - "cordovan". The cordovan layer exists only in equine hides and has its maximum thickness on the rump area. One horse hide yields only two small oval pieces of cordovan - two shells. Using the centuries-old method of pure vegetable tannage and hand finishing, the tanning process takes a full six months to complete. The outcome is one of the world’s finest leathers and one that is highly coveted for its unmatched durability and wonderful patina.
