Based in Atlanta, Georgia, District Leather believes in meticulous craftsmanship using only the best materials—and in these shell cordovan key fobs, it certain shows. Pioneered in the Middle Ages by the Moors, shell cordovan has roots in Spain and takes its name from the city of Cordoba. Today, it’s most commonly associated with Horween Leather Company: a world-famous tannery and the oldest one in the country still producing shell cordovan. This leather comes from the fibrous flat muscle, or shell, taken from a specific part of a horse’s hide. Over the course of 6 months, it undergoes an extensive process that includes tanning, stuffing, shaving, and polishing. Regarded as one of the most durable forms of leather, shell cordovan is also prized for its unique hand-finished color treatment.
Note: At checkout, you’ll have your choice of twelve colors with antique brass or nickel-finished hardware.
Founded in 2015, District Leather strives to create designs that blend form, function, and extraordinary attention to detail. Both the company name and its logo are homages to Washington, DC, the founder’s hometown.
