Fish Skin and Reindeer Leather Bracelets
Fish skins were tanned by the Saami people and other native cultures. The fish skins are descaled and go through a cleaning, tanning and softening process using tree barks, oils and other natural materials. The tanning process can take 2-6 weeks depending on the type of fish skin and tanning materials used. Fish leather does not smell fishy if the tanning has been done correctly.
