Avon In Cordovan Shell

Avon In Cordovan Shell

Cordovan shell leather is often considered to be one of the finest leathers in the world and to ensure you receive the best quality, we’ve teamed up with British tannery Claytons of Chesterfield who have been trading since 1840 and are recognized Worldwide for their unparalleled quality.

We have produced the latest version of Avon using the finest slow vegetable tanned horse leather.
Vegetable tanning is a traditional craft process that tanneries have handed down from father to son for over 200 years.
The actual tanning process itself is time consuming, taking between one to three months.V

In vegetable tanned leather only organic materials such as bark, branches, leaves and even some fruits in some
specific techniques are used instead of harmful chemicals.

Being organic there are many benefits to vegetable tanned leather including: Colors and textures have a more natural and organic look, high durability and strength, can last an entire lifetime and/or is bio-degradable when it ceases to be used.
