The No.11 Zip Wallet is a simple, slim and elegant wallet. Designed to to fit up to 15 cards along with multiple bills, while maintaining a 1/4" low-profile.  Each wallet is skillfully crafted with a combination of machine and hand-sewing then hand-polished, stained, beveled and waxed edges.  We use the finest Japanese polished brass zippers and Spanish waxed thread. The inside pocket is credit-card size, but can also fit coins, business cards or folded bills. 

Made from Genuine Horween® Shell Cordovan, quite possible the finest leather in the world and ideal for small leather goods like wallets.  More than just a color, Shell Cordovan is the art of tanning at it's finest.  The irregular oval shaped shells are tanned, stuffed, shaved, and then polished – a process taking at least six months.  Each shell is slowly steeped in gentle vegetable liquors. The shells are hot stuffed then slicked onto glass frames to dry.  Each shell is hand curried and shaved by highly skilled artisans to expose the "shell". Dyes are hand rubbed on for a deep aniline finish then hand glazed to achieve the rich, glossy look and feel prized by leather connoisseurs worldwide.

    GENUINE HORWEEN® SHELL CORDOVAN
    Tanned In Chicago, IL Since 1905 

    Genuine Horween® Shell Cordovan is quite possible the finest leather in the world. Unique in many ways, shell cordovan is known for it's extreme durability, extraordinary bright luster and glass-like surface and the rich cordovan aroma.

    The entire tanning process goes through around 100-processes and takes a full 6-months to complete tan, making this the ultimate "Artisan Tanned Leather".  Cordovan is more than just a color, it is a very specific leather from the "butt" of a horsehide.  The oval shaped shells are tanned, stuffed, shaved, and then polished over six months. 

    Each shell is slowly steeped in gentle vegetable liquors then hot stuffed & slicked onto glass frames to dry.  They are hand curried and shaved by highly skilled artisans to expose the shell and the dyes are hand rubbed on for a deep aniline finish. Finally, the shells are hand glazed to achieve the rich, glossy look and feel prized by fine craftsmen.
