So, what is shagreen?

Shagreen is a type of leather that is made from the skins of sharks, stingrays, and other exotic sea creatures. It is a textured material that is known for its distinctive, pebbled appearance, which is created by the small, raised bumps on its surface. Shagreen has been used for centuries in the creation of luxury goods, such as furniture, jewelry, and fashion accessories. Its durability and unique texture make it a sought-after material for high-end designers and collectors. While shagreen is no longer produced from endangered species, it is still a rare and valuable ingredient in the world of luxury goods.
