Skin of stings and sharks is also called ‘shagreen’ and was originally used to rub, polish or file. A master leather worker in the court of Louis XV (Jean-Claude Galuchat) first popularized the use of stingray leather, using it as veneer on a variety of items including sheaths, wig cases, perfume flacons, sewing and snuff boxes.
The qualities for which this fine leather is valued are also what make it so difficult to work with. Its combination of extreme hardness and elastic softness requires great patience and skill to produce quality products.
