It is designed to be compact with the wide length of a billfold tailored to the bill length. The six card slots are placed in such a way that they overlap each other, and a tail is also attached so that there is plenty of room. The interior details also have a thinly turned edge and are sewn tightly. We hope you will enjoy the thin construction that takes advantage of the characteristics of leather.
Established in 1905, the HORWEEN company in Chicago, U.S.A., has been producing cordovan and other leathers using traditional manufacturing methods.
This series uses their new oily and richly textured leather.
The leather is rich in oil, and its touch is rugged and wildly American. The leather is tanned with full vegetable tannin (a traditional, organic process using plant astringent), which gives the leather a strong aging effect as it is used.
In addition, the excellent leather-making techniques of Japanese craftsmen have made the leather as thin and compact as possible while still being strong. This series, which incorporates rugged leather into a beautiful look, is ideal for business and other occasions.
HORWEEN is a tannery established in 1905 in Chicago, U.S.A. GANZO uses HORWEEN's leather for its Shell Cordovan series and GH5 series.
The new leather developed by HORWEEN, a company that has long been producing high quality leather using traditional manufacturing methods, is an American leather that is so rich in oil that its surface feels wet. It is made with HORWEEN's own special oil, which is a blend of several kinds of oil including fish oil.
This leather is made from high quality North American raw hides and tanned with tannin, and as it is used more and more, the color and luster become richer and the texture becomes more moist. Even small scratches become a distinctive feature. The soft yet firm touch is the result of the HORWEEN company.

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.
A new series of bridle leathers made by Thomas Ware, a long-established tannery in England, is now available.
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.
