    Confused Whats the difference between Horween leather and leather?

    I see that many strap makers charge more for horween leather straps than the leather ones. Is this because the horween leather is better, more expensive, harder to work with, etc?

    Just wondering, thanks

    Isn't Horween the exclusive maker of Shell Cordovan leather? Shell Cordovan is from the backs of Texas work horses and as such is very strong and long lasting leather, impregnated with natural oils and tanned by Horween in a many-step proprietary process.
    Very soft and impervious leather, and will outlast calf many times over.
