We recently came across these colorful skins while looking for new fabrics to recover seat cushions. Although we loved how they looked, we were a little skeptical about how these skins were produced and if any smells were attached to the leather. What we found out was pleasantly surprising.

According to ES Salmon Leather, this product is a much more sustainable alternative for the exotic leather industry. The company prides itself on using fair-trade principles and only uses skin that is discarded by the fish processing industry. Their dying process includes plant extracts instead of chrome, making the leather 100% natural, without a fishy smell.
