To coincide with Van’s collaboration with the Horween Leather Company, met up with Skip Horween, president of Horween, in the Chicago tannery where they’ve been for 91 years, to learn more about this legendary company’s techniques and its unique collaboration with Vans. Horween remains one of the few leather companies based in the US and has seem a revival of interest in its trade in recent times as people push for quality craftsmanship. In the video, as well as an interview and tour of the factory, we get a preview of the forthcoming seasonal offerings from the Horween x Vans partnership – including designs from another Vans collaborator, Taka Hayashi.
