About Shark Skin & Legalities

Shark skin is renowned for its course texture and prominent grains. Shark skin is prized for this quality; the finer varieties are used for shoes, handbags and other leather items. Our shark skins are tanned with extra oils to give them a softer, garment-grade feel and have the thickness and coarseness that can be accentuated by skiving to a nubuck or suede finish by applying a high-grit sandpaper.

Our sharks are wild and the quality of their skin is a direct reflection of their harsh natural environment; Rojé is the only seller in the marketplace that provides credits for holes, blemishes and imperfections outside of the standard A- or H-shape from harvesting around the fins.

Legalities and Conservation

All Rojé stocked shark skins come from non-endangered and non-threatened shark species prionace glauca with no CITES required. Our skins originate from Asia Pacific, the Golf Coast and South America and are most often the by-products of fishing villages and international cuisine.

Shark skin is always in high demand and seasonal. If you intend to use shark skin for any of your projects, always know in advance how much material you will need and purchase it all at once.
