Product Description & Reviews
Cordovan is a leather made from the hide of a horse's rump area.It is distinguished by the beautiful luster and texture that comes from its delicate structure.After all is said and done the uniqueness of cordovan lies in its brilliant glossy finish.Whereas most leathers are constructed of two layers, with a surface layer called a affixed to a base, cordovan is constructed of only a single-layer of leather.A rigid layer is shaved off of the reverse side of the leather so as to not damage the cordovan.Due to this process resembling techniques used in gem mining, and the increased preciousness it generates, cordovan is sometimes call "the jewel of leathers."This cordovan hide is not taken from just any horses.It is not from thoroughbreds or ponies, but is harvested strictly as a byproduct of horses raised for food on low-production farms in Europe.These horses are also decreasing in number year by year, making this material even more difficult to obtain.Merely two pieces of cordovan can be taken from one horse. It is an extremely precious material.There are also extremely few pieces of cordovan long enough to use to produce belts.That is why cordovan belts are so highly rare and valuable.All cordovan used by bell la bell has an "oiled-up finish." You can greater enjoy the aging of the leather.
