Developing Fish Skin as a sustainable raw material for the fashion industry

Project description

Reeling in a new type of eco-friendly leather

Leather can also be made from fish skins. This eco-friendly material, which is durable, odour-free and stronger than cow leather, is a big catch for the fashion industry. The EU-funded FISHSkin project will develop this new category of raw material, bringing together mariculture and the fashion industry. Specifically, it will use both fish flesh and skin as viable economically useful products. The project will study the viability of fish leather in the fashion industry. It will develop new techniques and methodologies for a market take-up at industrial level. The project will base its findings on experts from the fields of fashion as well as materials science and marine biology.
