Cordovan has long been regarded as one of the most exquisite and desirable leathers available in the world.
The leather is cut from a very small area of the hide - the hind quarters, generally known as the "shell".
This oval shaped shell has a very tightly bound grain structure, with little or no stretch. It creates a highly durable surface which will not crease like conventional leather, but ripples instead, and displays excellent water repellent properties.
These have a deep luxurious finish one side, with our distinctive Metropolitan Leather branding on the reverse.
The hides used for our cordovan are of UK origin, tanned in the UK, so are genuine UK cordovan.
This material is ideal for: Shoes, wallets, watch straps and small high end leather goods.
