Stingray leather (or Shagreen) is one of our most exotic materials.
The leather is naturally covered with countless tiny calcium-rich bubbles that resist scratching, scuffing, and puncturing. This coarse surface protects the stingray against predators’ attacks 🌊
Indeed, stingray leather is one of the most durable leathers in the world with some sources claiming that it is as much as 25 times stronger than cowhide. It is also water resistant.
