Shark Leather: A Voyage Through Time

The use of shark leather is not a modern marvel but a historical practicality. In the past, shark skin was valued for its rough texture, making it an ideal abrasive similar to sandpaper, used to smooth and finish objects, a testament to its versatility and resilience. 

As a material, shark leather, or shagreen as it is collectively known alongside its cousin, the stingray, has been a symbol of luxury and exoticism. In the 18th century, shagreen was popularized in Europe by Jean-Claude Galluchat, a master leatherworker in the court of Louis XV of France. It adorned the most exquisite items, from sword hilts to ornate boxes and furniture, signifying status and sophistication.

Care and Maintenance

Cleaning

Similar to suede, but less susceptible to stains, any dirt can be removed with a soft brush or toothbrush. A damp toothbrush with mild soap can be used for more stubborn stains, always spot-test first to avoid discoloration.

Storage

If you’re not using your shark wallet regularly, store it in a cool, dark place (no, not Batman’s Bat Cave) and away from direct sunlight to avoid drying/cracking and discoloration.

Handling Wear and Tear

Shark skin is known for its durability and resistance to abrasion. Minor scratches can often blend into the natural texture of the leather. For more noticeable marks, seek out a professional who specializes in exotic leather care to ensure the best results.

Regular maintenance is key. Keep your wallet away from prolonged exposure to direct sunlight and heat, which can dry out the leather. If it gets wet, pat it dry immediately. For routine dust, a slightly damp cloth will do the trick. And remember, shark skin is tough but not invincible; treat it with the care it deserves.

Yes, shark skin is naturally water-resistant to a degree, making it a practical choice for an everyday wallet. However, it’s not waterproof, so don’t take it for a swim!

Yes, it is! We ensure that our shark leather is ethically sourced. In fact, most shark leather is a byproduct of the fishing industry; these animals are not hunted for their skins.

Dive into the Deep Blue: Quirky and Fascinating Shark Tidbits

Sharks have roamed the ocean’s depths for millions of years, inspiring fear and fascination in equal measure. But there’s more to these cartilaginous creatures than meets the eye. Here are five quirky facts about sharks that might just make you see them in a whole new light:

  1. Sharks are boneless wonders! Unlike other fish, sharks have no bones; their skeletons are made of cartilage, which is the flexible stuff in your nose and ears.
  2. Night vision goggles? Unnecessary for sharks! They have a mirror-like layer in their eyes that helps them see in the dark.
    Sharks are the ocean’s electricians, thanks to their ampullae of Lorenzini.
  3. These jelly-filled pores give them a sixth sense to detect electric fields and temperature shifts.
  4. Forget sandpaper, shark skin is the original rough surface. Covered in tiny, tooth-like structures called dermal denticles, it’s designed to reduce drag and ward off parasites.
  5. Sharks can enter a trance. Flip a shark upside down (erm… good luck with that), and it may slip into a state of tonic immobility, a natural state of paralysis.
