Atlantic Leather is an Icelandic tannery leading in manufacturing exotic leather from fishskin in addition to the more traditional longwool sheepskin tanning. The fishleather is produced from four different species of fish; Salmon, perch, wolffish and cod – each with its own unique characteristics - in a diverse range of colours, textures and finishes. Atlantic Leather is stationed in Sauðárkrókur, a small but vibrant community of roughly 3000 inhabitants, located in the heart of Skagafjörður, Iceland. The development of the fish leather has been in process since 1994, but the idea itself is rooted in tradition whereas centuries ago Icelanders wore shoes made of wolffish skin.
