Based in Atlanta, Georgia, District Leather believes in meticulous craftsmanship using only the best materials—and in these watch straps, it certainly shows. Crafted from shell cordovan leather, known for its durability and unique finish (and sourced from Chicago's world-famous Horween Leather Company), these straps are the perfect complement to a nice timepiece. With these straps, even when buckled on the last hole there’s still enough remaining material to be held in place by both keepers. They’re also available in multiple sizes and colors to match the style of your favorite watch.
Note: At checkout, you will have your choice of style and color: Chromexcel Horse Strip in Black, Burgundy, Chocolate, or Natural; or Shell Cordovan (+ $25) in Black, Color #8, or Dark Cognac. You'll also have your choice of width and length.
Pioneered in the Middle Ages by the Moors, Shell Cordovan has roots in Spain, with the city of Cordoba lending its name to this rare leather. Today, it’s most commonly associated with Horween Leather Company—the country’s oldest tannery still producing Shell Cordovan. It 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.
