Tannery Visit : Horween Leather

Douglas & Co. Detroit

While in Rome... or Chicago. As leather workers, Horween is a buzz word these days, and we couldn't resist a visit or shopping spree.

A tannery that has been around since 1905, located in Chicago Illinois. Four floors of processing just outside Wicker Park in an area called Bucktown. Their processes never compromise the fine craft of leather manufacturing. Through the last 100 + years they have refined their process, to make the best leathers around. Never compromising quality, their leathers are to this day made by hand. Everything takes place within their factory, from dying to splitting leathers for the perfect thickness. There is a reason they have been around for over 100 years and why they're known for their famous leathers, predominantly because they offer a product superior to many other leathers available. We were privileged to visit their tannery, and hope you enjoy a glimpse of what we were able to experience. Stay tuned for some products made from what we picked up!
