THE LEATHER CONNECTION
LEATHERGOODS MADE FROM SHAGREEN & OTHER EXOTIC SKINS FROM MPL
MPL (Thailand) CO. Ltd.
Available Direct from Thailand a range of Leathergoods, Furniture, Boots & Shoes, etc. Crafted in the popular Shagreen (Stingray) & other exotic skins A selection of these goods is displayed on this page but as some are made to order please or even made to customers specification or to order if you don't see what you are looking for please ask.
For those unfamiliar with these skins The specialist Tannery in Thailand produces the finest range of exotic leathers using animals & fish skins which are sustainable. indeed all fish skins are the waste material from the fishing industry in the area as all these fish are caught or farmed as part of the food chain. The same applies to the snakes & other creatures they are all farmed for their meat which is eaten in the Far East. If these skins were not used they would be burnt as waste or buried in land fill areas as residue from the food industry as indeed that is what happened to most of them before they were tried as a source of leather. There are other species that are eaten of which the skins are not
suitable to be used for leather goods.
