From shoes to handbags, from accessories to clothes. From furniture to interior designs. It is hard to believe that the skin of this giant Amazonian fish can provide such soft and resilient material.
After years of investment and research, what used to be discharged into nature as waste (fish is widely used as food) is transformed into a luxurious organic product.
