Handbags of this line are made of Arapaima fish skin and vaccum napa leather by skilled artisans, providing a limited number of items with a thorough quality control.
The Arapaima is one of the most representative species of the Amazon, besides being one of the most traditional dishes of the local cuisine. Skins are a by-product of the fishing industry and come from regulated fish farms or from sustained and controlled management programs.
The use of skins creates new opportunities for the Amazonian riverine communities. A specially developed tanning method uses organic products free from heavy metals (chrome free). As a result, leather with even more lively and natural colors and greater flexibility, resistance and quality can be produced.
The vaccum napa also prepared for this item is a cowhide leather with full grain. It gains a specially treatment and its finish is made in lacquer and vegetable pigments.
