Filson, the maker behind Tin Cloth, presents this look inside the factory of fellow American heritage brand Horween. The video takes us behind the scenes of the historic Horween leather factory in Chicago, where the brand continues to produce some of the finest leathers in the industry, including those used for Filson’s new leather totes and accessories, which are made with traditional craftsmanship techniques and an uncompromising commitment to quality.
Horween Leather Company was founded in 1905. For more than 100 years, their goal has been to make the best leather in the world.
Through the years they have cultivated their experience to offer a dynamic line of leathers that include traditional old world tannages and techniques along with carefully selected updates. Horween’s leathers are still made today, by hand, the same way they were generations ago.
