Córdoba (also referred to as Cordova in English) is a fabulously beautiful old town in Andalusia. It is famous for its Moorish architecture, as well as its fine leather industry. With its rich dyes and a polish that lasts a life-time, Cordovan leather is synonymous with luxury. English word “cordwainer” – the maker of fine leather shoes and other luxury footwear articles – comes from the word “cordovan”. The Petusco brand of shoes and leather accessories originated in Córdoba.
