Voted best luxury leather in the world at APLF Hong Kong leather exhibition 2013
Atlantic Leather offers tanned leather made from thin, yet strong fish skin, dyed and finished with various effects. Our conservational methods have been developed by combining traditional tanning techniques with the latest technologies. Our mission is to maintain the Icelandic tradition of making the best use of what we are allotted in life. Using all parts of the catch in the most imaginative ways is both a new and an old concept in a harsh environment
The fishleather we produce is from four different species of fish; Salmon, perch, wolffish and cod – each with its own unique characteristics - in a diverse range of colours, textures and finishes. The fishleather is environmentally friendly in two different ways: it is a bi-product of the fishing industry, utilising raw material that would not otherwise be used; and the production process makes use of renewable hydro and geothermal energy.” Atlantic Leather has been a leading enterprise in the development of fish leather. It is, for instance, the only company in the world that makes wolffish leather, and it is also the only tannery in the world that has successfully developed a way to make washable salmon leather. Being stronger than regular leather due to the alignment of fibers within the leather, it can serve purpose in everything from jewelry to handbag to panels! The sky is the limit when it comes to creating new platforms for functionality in fish leather!
We strive for sustainability, and we pride ourselves in the fact that all products going through our factory - whether it being from fish, lamb, horse or other animal - is all a bi-product from other industries such as agricultural industries or the food industry.
NO ANIMAL IS KILLED WITH THE SOLE PURPOSE OF COLLECTING ITS SKIN ON OUR PREMESIS!”
