Stingrays leather: Although stingrays are popular in Asia as edible fish, it’s leather is a real rarity. Stingrays are not subject to the protection of species and the processed fish skins are a by-product of seafood processing.
Not only is stingray leather beautiful to look at, it is also highly wear-resistant. In respect of the wear and tear durability, stingray leather surpasses all other leathers. Stingrays develop oval surfaces on their back that are completely studded with highly abrasion-proof horn beads. The surfaces are in part slightly sanded to create a special appearance. Stingray leather is sturdy leather with ca. 30% more rigidity in comparison with conventional leather. This unique leather is offered in various colours.
