Our modernized version of Shagreen is the finest quality leather, embossed with the rough, granular pattern of the stingray. For hundreds of years, shagreen was crafted from shark or stingray hides. The stingray is covered with round, closely set bumps resembling small pearls. A beautiful material which also offered an excellent grip - it was used in Asia to embellish the sword handles and sheaths of samurai warriors. In the 18th century, it came into fashion in the court of Louis XV of France, where it was a popular finish on toilette items such as snuff boxes and wig cases. Our modernized version of Shagreen is the finest quality leather, embossed with the rough, granular pattern of the stingray. The texture and tonal quality of this superb, exotic material make it truly unique.
