We get very excited around here when we find a new product that is of exceptional quality and made in the U.S.A. This new messenger bag and wallet fall into that category. Coronado Leather, our long time supplier of American bison leather items, has introduced a new collection made of Horween Leather.
Founded in 1905, and now run by fifth-generation family members, Horween Leather is one of the oldest continuously run tanneries in the U.S., and the only one still located in Chicago. Chromexcel® is tanned using time honored techniques and formulas that were developed nearly 100 years ago. It is a nearly water proof, full grain aniline leather that is hand glazed and oil tanned. The tanning process spans over 28 working days and takes 89 separate processes to complete. This process creates an amazing hide of leather that will patina like an old leather glove, breaking in beautifully. It is exceptional. Guaranteed for life.
Horween Leather Messenger Bag
Old World craftsmanship at its best, this messenger bag bears a resemblance to vintage American leather bags or saddlebags.

English Bridle leather. Brass rivets reinforce the straps and trim. Perfect fit for a small laptop, iPad, e-book, or an old fashioned book or two. Wonderful travel accessory. Measures 10-1/2" wide x 12" tall x 1-3/4" wide. Weighs 2 lbs. 6 oz. Made in the U.S.A.
