The company’s leather goods are worth focusing significant attention upon. All leather used in the productions of Shinola’s products comes from Horween in Chicago, a 107-year-old leather tannery on the Chicago River, and one of the oldest and few remaining in the United States.

As far as bags are concerned, they are designed for a masculine consumer who cares about quality and incredible design. Knapsacks are constructed of leather and canvas, and are great for the day-to-day or travel adventures. iPad cases, wallets, portfolios, are simple, yet tasteful.
