Chicago’s Last Tannery

by Christopher Paul on May 20, 2014

The Distance is a new magazine dedicated to businesses who haven’t gone out of business — though most (if not all others) have. Their first issue covers the Horween Leather Company who still tans leathers the old fashion way in Chicago.

It’s a family owned and run business and their products are used in many other hand-made products like footballs, shoes, wallets, and other accessories.
