Sustainable Aquatic Leathers

Felsie, otherwise known as Antonia Gillett, designed fish leather as an alternative to traditional leather materials. To create the material, the designers first rescue fish skins that are otherwise destined for the trash. The leather is dyed using bark tanning to uphold its sustainability.

Dubbed the Felsie Fish Leather, the material is long-lasting and resembles the texture and pattern of snakeskin leather at first glance. Consumers can be reassured by the fact that the material does not smell fishy; instead, it smells similar to other genuine leather. The current manufacturing technique produces a rough texture, but Felsie’s team is sure to smooth out the process after further developments. The material can be shaped into various items, like wallets, belts, and more.
