Carp leather is soft and pliable and have a distinctive fish scale pattern, which makes them look unique from other leathers.

We have a limited supply of natural Common Carp skins.  No dye or finish has been applied.  They are a creamy white color and have no scales.  The skins measure 16" to 20" (40 to 50 cm) long, 4" to 6" (10 to 15 cm) on the widest end, and 2" (5 cm) on the narrowest or tail end. 

The dyed Crucian Carp skins come in a glazed or suede finish. Glazing adds a protectant to the outside surface of the leather. The glazed leather surface will be water-resistant and protect against dirt, grease, and excessive wear. The skins measured down the middle are approximately 16" to 21" long by 3.5" to 4.5" wide.

Fish leather can be used to make shoes, handbags, belts, hats, wallets, and many other apparel and accessory items. It may also be used for jewellery and book binding.
