Something fishy going on in Florence Italy

Can there really be a convincing substitute to animal leather ?  There just maybe, it is the newest leather to have emerged in the fashion world in the last 20 years.  Not only is it soft and supple but  is the second strongest leather known to man.  Pierotucci have had the good FORTUNATA  to find a small selection  of quality fish leather in three delicious colors and keeping in the theme of the FORTUNATA designer handbag, have produced three limited edition series of tote bags.

Made from various types of fish (saltwater a/o freshwater), it has been carefully controlled that none of these fish are on the endangered species list. Fish leather can worked like any other type of animal leather and can be found as suede, silk, glazed, pearlized and high grain finishes. Though the scales have all been removed, the skins have either small or large scale pockets. It is a long process to tan fish leather because it is imperative to tan all those “fishy” smelling oils out of the skin so that the final product is completely neutral. Since fish leather is extremely delicate, the tanning process is followed with a studied eye to be sure that it remains in the tanning process long enough to remove offending oils but not too long that it destroys the strength of the leather.

These Fortunata Designer leather handbags are designed to be unisex – however some bags tend to lend themselves the fashion conscious women. The versatile aspect of these bags makes them an addition to everyone’s wardrobe that will pass the test of time.
