When we set out to upcycle ocean byproducts, we did not just want to reduce waste. We wanted to encourage sustainable fishing practices by adding value to the waste of fisheries managed sustainably.
Alaska is the only state in the nation with a constitutional mandate that all fish be harvested on a sustainable yield principal. All 5 species of Alaska Salmon are certified as sustainable under multiple 3rd party certification programs, including the Marine Stewardship Council and the Alaska Seafood Marketing Institute.
Our vegetable tanned Alaska Salmon Leather is made from Alaskan Sockeye (often called Red) Salmon.
Our 3 week tanning process produces an amazingly durable aquatic leather with a subtle glossy finish.
The first step in the tanning process includes removing all the natural fish oils. Then we start to add a series of tanning oils that are very similar to what is used in vegetable tanned cow leather. This makes the scent resemble vegetable tanned cow leather, there is no fish odor.
Most aquatic tanning formulas contain chemicals such as formaldehyde and/or chrome based chemicals.
We worked with chemists for over a year to develop a sustainable way to produce just as durable of a product, but with all vegetable based tanning oils.
