Horween Leather, 1940



Horween Leather, 2016


Thank you.

It is hard to believe 2015 is in the history books and that from our founding in 1905 Horween Leather has been around for 110 years.
We want everyone we work with to know how much they are appreciated. We take none of it for granted. So, whether you are working in our factory, or supplying us with hides or oils or shipping boxes. If you are a producer of footballs or shoes or bags or straps. And especially if you buy any one of these fine products – you have our gratitude.

To Isidore, who founded our company with the idea of only the best. To Arnold Sr. and Arnold Jr. carrying on the traditions and evolving and growing with the times to get us to where we are today. And to Nick and Natalie, the next generation, who have joined the company and whose capable hands will help carry us into the future. Thank you.

All the best for 2016,
Skip Horween
