As far back as the 9th century, the Vikings used their craftsmanship to make fishskin shoes that could withstand the extreme cold. Leatherbox likes to introduce designers to the special properties of fish leather that the Vikings already knew. Fish leather is thin, but extremely strong due to the unique interwoven fiber structure. This makes it up to nine times stronger in comparison to cow leather! In addition, fish leather gives your design an exotic look. Designers often choose fish leather to add accents to bags or small leather goods, or as trendy shoe leather.
At Leatherbox you buy fish leather from salmon and the unique spotted wolffish, for a fixed price per skin. The supplier works completely CO2 neutral and only uses skins of sustainably caught fish, which normally remain as 'waste' from the food industry.
Choose fish leather and follow the footsteps of the Vikings!
