I love it when good things come together; a great designer, an esteemed 100 year old American tannery and the most handsome of leathers, Shell Cordovan. That is exactly what arrived in my mailbox last week, a Makr flap wallet made from 100% Horween Cordovan. If you aren’t familiar with Horween, the Chicago-based family-run operation one of the last surviving tanneries in the United States and producer of some of the finest leather goods the world over. I feel privileged to carry such a beautiful piece of American design from a talented young company and a respected institution. Makr leather goods are available in genuine Horween Shell Cordovan by special order.
