Fish leather craftsmanship can be an elaborate, intricate process. The coloration stage is an energy-intensive technique that requires a great amount of water normally. Atlantic Leather uses only geothermal hot water - a renewable resource that is eco-friendly - in order to protect the environment and become a sustainable company. This manufacturer delivers its consumers a product with great style made in an environmentally conscious setting.
