Speaking of Shell Cordovan Leathers, they are the top of the range and finest leather in the world. Traditionally used for shoe making, we are seen a rise in small leather goods made from Shell Cordovan Leathers.
Some people might not know it, Shell Cordovan leather are obtain from the fibrous flat muscle (Shell) underneath the skin on the rump of a horse. These leathers take around six months to process until the final shell. Thus, making them premium and rare.
In year 2014, Obbi Good Label began importing Shell Cordovan from USA, venturing to add these premium leathers into their leather goods collection. By the end of 2014, the first Shell Cordovan made by Obbi Good Label takes form in a Bi-Fold wallet for men.

You can actually feel and acknowledge that these leathers are going to be a lifetime products.
So in 2015, Obbi Good Label tested out a variety of Shell Cordovan tanneries and favour the Japanese Shell Cordovan (Shinki Hikaku) more because they are lighter and natural grains are more prominent.
