How Salmon Skin became a secret weapon for our Cufflets
Some super-cool salmon skin properties...
- Scratch resistant
- Stain resistant
- Repels water
- Weighs less than leather
- Thinner than leather
- Doesn't need polishing or upkeep treatments
- Textured- ideal for gripping fabric & keeping cuffs in place ;)

Salmon is shockingly strong once it's been properly dried & treated. It has a unique 3-dimensional texture with cross fibers in the skin. This makes it stronger and more flexible than leather, which has fibers that only go in one direction.
What makes it so eco-friendly?
Salmon skin leather is made by re purposing a by-product of the commercial salmon industry. In the past, the skin was discarded. Now that we are finding new uses for it, we can salvage what would've been thrown out as waste. As a bonus, many studies cite that harvesting & farming salmon is more eco-friendly than cattle. All of our Cufflets are hand-sewn in Colorado.
Each style is extremely limited . In some colors we may only have one or two pairs left! If you don't think you'll use them on your sleeves, we highly suggest trying them as a bracelet. They are so lightweight you'll forget you're wearing them and trust us, you'll get comments from onlookers who want in this new trend.
