Horween Shell International Wallet No.81
The International Wallet is like no wallet you have ever owned. It is more of a man's folio wallet capable of carrying multiple currencies, passport, coins and credit-cards all in an organized and secure manner. The polished-brass chain and custom Italian hardware set this apart from most wallets.
Includes the removable chain & matching leather belt keeper
Each wallet is individually gold-foil embossed with a unique serial#, then saddle-stitched completely by hand with imported Spanish thread. The edges are carefully beveled, sanded, stained and waxed to give them a smooth, rounded edge. The unlined body was designed to outlive the "traditional" wallet, with a 100% Shell Cordovan body. After finishing they are hand-waxed on the edges and polished before shipping.

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.
