      "The English term cordwainer, meaning shoemaker, first appears in 1100.
      By the late 13th century a distinction grew in England between
      Cordwainers. proper, called alutari, who used only alum "tawed"
      cordwain, and another class of shoemakers called basanarii, who employed
      an inferior "tanned" sheepskin which was prohibited for footwear apart
      from long boots. Since this period the term cordouan, or cordovan
      leather, has been applied to several varieties of leather. Today
      cordovan leather is a "vegetable tanned" horse "shell," and like the
      Medieval cordwain is used only for the highest quality shoes.
      Since the Middle Ages the title of Cordwainer has been selected by the
      shoemakers themselves, and used rather loosely; however, generally it
      always refers to a certain class of shoe and boot-makers. The first
      English guild of shoemakers who called themselves "Cordwainers" was
      founded at Oxford in 1131. "Cordwainers" was also the choice of the
      London shoemakers, who had organized a guild before 1160, and the
      Worshipful Company of Cordwainers has likewise used this title since
      receiving their first Ordinances in 1272"
