In addition to the jewelry we carry an extensive array of Stingray Leather products for both Men and Women. Stingray leather is one of the most exotic and beautiful leathers in the world. The stingray used is the Dasyatis Bleekeri and is used as a food source in the Far East. Stingray leather is naturally water, fire, scratch & tear resistant and it is also 25 times stronger than cowhide. Shagreen, the untanned, rock hard hide of a stingray has been used for Japanese sword handles. The diamond shaped pearl marking is found on the ray’s back and each one is distinct. Therefore no two pieces of these handmade bags and purses are ever identical. It has been called “The Tuxedo of Leathers”. The popularity of this beautiful leather has risen over the past several years as many designers of luxury goods have seen fit to incorporate it into their designs.
