Introducing Salmon Leather, Part I

Salmon is mostĀ commonly used in our society as an aliment, and is frequently seen on the market and found in the form of: cans, fillets, steaks, lox, smoked varieties, roe and skin in sushi, and less commonly,Ā heads – for stock.Ā  Over recent years however, manufacturers have beenĀ thinking beyond this culinary box,Ā Ā and are usingĀ the skin ofĀ  salmon as a form of leather. As a leather material, it is considered to be: easy to dye and tan, and stronger and more flexible thanĀ land leathers,Ā not to mention theĀ appealing textures and natural patterns of the salmon skinĀ itself (bearing a similar resemblance to that of snake skin). Companies around the world, including local ones,Ā have been using salmon leather for the creation ofĀ clothing, clothing accents, purses, wallets, shoes, belts, jewellery, iPhone covers andĀ other accessories,Ā furnishings, and housing decor. OftenĀ discardedĀ by the salmon industry,Ā salvagingĀ the skin forĀ use as a form of leather,Ā is an eco-friendly way of re-purposing it.
