The devil is in the detail..

To add on, some pictures and a little information regarding this 'Walnut' colour of Shell Cordovan (Horween).
It is very rare and precious to have leather goods made from Walnut colour of Shell Cordovan leathers. (of course, the most sought-after is Horween's Whiskey Shell).
The reason is because Shell Cordovan leathers must be smooth and shiny, lighter colours like Walnut and Whiskey are easier to show any flaws and blemishes during handling or even the operating processes. Thus, it is difficult and more reluctant for tanneries to produce light colour shell cordovan, which makes the supply lesser.

We managed to acquired some and made them into 'Brave' mid-sized wallets for IH UK.

Have fun if you have one :)
