Rocado cordovan usually comes in 1.8/2.0mm thickness.

By purchasing this option we can split down cordovan to your desired thickness, from 0.8mm to 1.4mm.

This option is per piece so if you would like to split more than one piece, you will need to purchase this option in the same number of cordovan pieces.

* This option can only be purchased with cordovan. (cannot be purchased alone)

* Cordovan that has been split cannot be returned.

* Split thickness cannot be 100% precise. There is always an allowance of approximately 0.2mm plus or minus in the split process. Also there may be thickness variation within one piece of cordovan.

* Splitting will require approximately one extra week.

* Rocado stamp will be removed during splitting. If you would like to add stamps after split, please purchase Additional Rocado Stamps option.

* The split layer (the one with no cordovan) will be disposed at our end.

To avoid misunderstanding please read through below before purchasing.

Surfacing of grease

  • Rocado uses a lot of grease when tanning its shell cordovan. Sometimes this grease comes up on the surface as white shades especially when the shell goes through significant temperature change during transportation. In such case simply polish the surface with soft dry cloth and the white shades will disappear.

Variation in color and shine

  • Cordovan is natural leather, so the color and thickness may vary. In particular Rocado's cordovan has an aniline finish, so the range of color and shine variation tends to be wide especially when pieces are from different production lots. If you are purchasing multiple pieces and want to reduce the range of color/shine variation as much as possible, you should consider purchasing from the same production lot.
  • The photos are shown as an example only and the piece that you will receive will be different from the one pictured. The appearance of colors may also be different depending on your monitor.
