Koi Collection

 

These are actual carp skins that are tanned in a similar process as cowhide but more sustainable and just as durable. The skins come from commercial fisheries and are processed in Canada by removing the scales and the texture you see are the scale pockets. Two textures, suede & glazed. Suede is much like cowhide suede but the scale pockets add more texture and colors are more subdued.  Glazed is ridged and most durable with the most saturated colors. And just like cowhide leather please keep away from water and use a leather/suede cleaner when needed.

                                        A chic urban look in neutral tones or a fun pop of color!
