NOT ALL LEATHER IS CREATED EQUAL.
World famous Horween Leather is the foundation and perfect complement for NATELUNDSTROM leather goods. Founded in 1905 and operating as the oldest tannery in the U.S., Horween’s goal for more than 100 years “has been to make the world’s best leather.” The leather is made by hand in Chicago, IL, using the finest quality American hides, & old world tanning techniques, resulting in a superior product to most leather available in the market today. The buttery soft leather is easily recognized for its luxurious quality and ages beautifully over time, adding unique patina to your NATELUNDSTROM leather item.
Taking this quality a step further and focusing on our commitment to sustainability, we primarily utilize Horween’s, vegetable tanned, Essex leather, tanned in the same method as the world famous Shell Cordovan. The Vegetable tanning method uses natural barks instead of harsh chemicals & metals found common in most modern leather tanning. This vegetable tanning process results in reduced environmental impact, important for generations to come.
