2004 – A legacy is rediscovered

With a view to create value from a by-product of salmon processing, the idea of transforming “salmon skin” into superior, high quality leather using environmentally friendly methods was born. The socially conscious company has the idea that salmon skin could be a superior alternative to exotic leather, and inspiration is found in the ancient Nanai people of Eastern Siberia. By working directly with the Nanai people, the company is able to reconstruct and optimize the tanning process handed down for generations. And in the process, a valuable, ancient art was saved from oblivion.
