Tanning Back in Fashion

Fish tanners in NZ, France, and Ireland are peddling their wares to the elite fashion houses of Europe, claiming that fish skin is as durable as crocodile and as strong as any man-made fibre. Recent collections by Bottego Veneta, Givenchy, and Dior featured salmon skin shoes and purses and a stingray clutch. The hides come from creatures used for food and lose any odour during the 7-week tanning process.
