Horse leather is very rare today but it is still used in fashion as high-quality material that is durable for years to come. In fashion, it is traditionally used for shoes and clothing as very quality and very comfortable material for wearing. Cordovan leather is mainly used for high-end shoes. Only the leather from the rear flanks of heavy workhorses is suitable. Ready-produced cordovan contains a lot of greases and is, therefore, water repellent. Cordovan is one of the very expensive leathers, especially as the demand clearly exceeds the supply. The raw material, therefore, comes from a few specialist manufacturing companies.
