Why Eel Skin?
Eel leather is remarkably smooth and supple, lightweight and two to three times stronger than cowhide leather. Eel skin is referred to as 'the silk of the sea' for its silky, smooth, shimmering colors. And ... over time and use, the soft supple skin becomes even more luxurious! Each product piece has its own uniquely natural variations in markings, color & texture, keeping in mind, it is a skin from its wild environment, not factory produced!
Its rich color sheen is instantly recognizable, with a moist looking pinstripe pattern and exotic qualities. Eel leather is fairly water resistant with a great absorption rate and is easy to maintain. Accidental exposure to water will most likely darken your eel skin but only temporarily .... No need for panic! The color will return as the skin dries. If you need to, soak up excess water by blotting it with a paper towel or soft cloth. (do not rub or stretch your eel skin product when it is wet)
You may have been told that old wise-tail ... Eel skin demagnetizes your credit cards. Or eel skin will 'set off' alarms at airports. Really? NO, forget about all that ridiculousness! You will absolutely love any eel skin product you purchase!
