    The Process

    Shinola leather is produced in one of America’s longest-running tanneries—Horween, a family-owned company founded over a century ago by Isidore Horween in Chicago, Illinois. The Horween tanning process still uses many of the same hand-based techniques the company has used from the very beginning. Although these techniques demand a highly-skilled team of craftspeople, and the process overall costs more and takes longer than conventionally-produced leather, the end result is the same it’s been since the company’s founding—an exceptional leather of renowned quality, apparent in its color, texture, and the beautiful character it develops over time.

    When the tanning process is complete, the leather is shipped to the expert craftspeople of Eric Scott in Ste. Genevieve, MO. Once there, the leather undergoes an intensive hands-on production process, where everything—from the cutting and stitching to the splitting and skiving—is done by skilled workers, many of whom have been perfecting their craft for decades. This experience is ultimately what sets their craftspeople apart, with each detail of every item they produce—whether it’s a wallet, journal cover, or handbag—demonstrating the care and close attention that defines American-made quality.
