It is leather from the horse's rump and is characterized by very thin fibrous flat muscle. The durability and unique luster fascinates us to no end.
Cordovan is a rare and valuable horse leather and is considered to be the most durable. GANZO's Cordovan series combines Cordovan that has been dyed in a time consuming process and went through an oil-glazed finish with soft cowhide nume leather for the inside. This combination by our experienced artisans allows you to enjoy the contrast in the materials that brings out Cordovan's beautiful luster. The edges are finished with a Japanese traditional method by polishing it; characterized by a beauty which was brought about by the knowledge and experience with leather accessories. The more it's used, the translucency of the Cordovan's luster can be felt.

GANZO, the highest-quality line available anywhere, pursues the concept of “genuine” throughout the entire process, from the selection of materials, to cutting, thinning, sewing and polishing - without compromise. The persistence and energy of takumi (expert workmen) delivers products created by the hands of craftsman who are well-versed in Japanese culture and techniques.
Hida beef is used for the leather of GANZO's 7QS-H. Originally, cows are raised with an emphasis on meat quality, and raising the quality of the meat naturally leads to a higher quality of leather.
GANZO's products are made from bridle leather produced by J & E Sedgwick & Co. in the UK, who rely on traditional techniques and manufacturing methods handed down through generations.
The Horween Leather Company, a long-established tannery in Chicago, Illinois, was founded in 1905 by Isidore Horween. Isidore, who had worked in tanneries from a young age, came to the U.S. from Ukraine in 1892.
