Stingray skin, also known as shagreen, is the upper portion of certain species of ray used in leathercraft. They are larger in the centre of the skin and smaller on the outer edges. Each tiny sphere is made up of a hard substance called dentin, with an even harder outer coating of enamel.
Stingray skin is a strong, durable leather with a “bumpy” texture of smooth pearls across its surface and is both affordable and comes in a very wide array of colors and sizes. Stingray skin, while instantly recognizable among luxury enthusiasts, still has a novel mainstream appeal. Because of the varying degrees of size among adult stingrays used for leather, stingray skin will be found in extra large luxury applications such as upholstery, car interiors, and trims, while also being found in smaller applications like wallets, purses, jewelry and inlays.
