A truly unique leather. This leather is made from the Pirarucu fish of the Amazon. As the largest fresh water fish in the world, the hides they yield are quite large and cuttable. Once discarded as food bi-product in the region, these skins are regarded as more eco-friendly. Large trimmed scales form an amazing diamond texture throughout the hide. Matte surface finish. Thick like a cow hide but very supple this item is ideal for softer items that need to be a little thicker like a soft bag or a jacket.
The average skin size is about 7-8 square feet in the natural shape of the fish as shown below.
