Our team hosts years of aquatic tanning experience, but until now, methods of aquatic tanning required formaldehyde or chrome-based tanning chemicals.
Reducing waste and encouraging sustainable fishing by adding value to ocean byproducts was our primary vision as a company, but we couldn’t accept doing so in such as non-sustainable way.
We’re proud to say that every ingredient in our proprietary aquatic tanning formula is completely natural and even certified as food-grade by the FDA. These natural vegetable-based tanning oils replace all the fish oils in the skin which preserves, strengthens, and gives our durable leather a familiar fragrance of common cow leather made with vegetable oils.
The durability, flexibility, glossy look, and smooth feel of our aquatic leather comes from our proprietary water based finish, which we pneumatically press under 220°F into our aquatic leather.
We’re also manufacturing sheets and rolls of aquatic leather that can be used as a sustainable, practical, unique alternatives for other leathers. Our salmon leather resists stretching better than cow leather and has similar durability but in a thinner material.
