Item details

Listing for: Exotic Tilapia Fish Skin Leather - Glossy finish

*SIZE:
Skins vary in size and shape. From 8-12 inches long x 3 - 4.5 inches tall.
Fish leather is very strong and durable. Suede skins are super soft. Easy to cut, sew, etc.

#Pictures of finished products are for example only. The listing is for 1 (one) single skin.

*Please be aware that when I restock the color can be from a different dye lot. This means that the color shown could be slightly darker or lighter. Not by much, but if using for one project, I would suggest ordering all that you need to ensure it all comes from the same dye lot.

*FISH LEATHER IN MY LIFE:

Fish leather is NOT new to me. Matter fact, I've learned to make Fish Leather when I was in college a few years ago. I'm actually a Biologist Fish Engineer and it was requirement to learn the trade. To be sincere, I didn't really like it at that time, it was stinky and the process was so long.

For many years, I kept my skins in a corner and didn't really think about them. I then, decided to bring them to a trade show and to tell the truth, I was surprised with the positive response.

*FISH LEATHER IS PART OF HISTORY:

Fish Leather has been around for centuries, matter fact I was at the Smithsonian Institution National Museum of Natural History a few months ago and saw this huge rain coat and it was dated from the 1800's and made from Salmon. Hand stitched and salt cured.

That's something! :)

*WHY OUR FISH LEATHER?

A lot of the leather in the marked is tanned with heavy metals, including Chrome. "Go Fish" leather provides one of the best fish leather in the market. The tanning process is a 100% NATURAL, using enzymes and barks of trees and leaving out of the process all the bad stuff.

*ABOUT FISH LEATHER:

Fish leather is the new leather product in the market and it’s not as common as the bovine leather, but given the massive amount of skin sent to the landfill by the commercial fishing industry, it’s surprising that it’s not used more often. However, this scenario is changing with the help of great fashion designers that just now started introducing the Fish leather in the runway.

Fish leather is strong and durable.

The raw Fish skin is soaked and the flesh removed, during the process the odor and color is lost. Vegetable dye is used to give the skins vibrant colors. I SAID, no FISH smell on it.

Our leather is high quality and our tanning is CHROME FREE! Eco-Friendly process from the beginning to the end.

Tilapia skin make great leather and is suited to products such as shoes, wallets, handbags, purses, hats, jewelry and all kinds of fashion accessories. The size of the skin is very crucial in the confection of these products. Small Fish skins will present the best patterns.

Thanks for stopping by and CONVO us if you have any question.
