Looking for a unique gift that helps support sustainable fishing, but isn’t the fish? Tidal Vision has taken a new approach to ‘upcyling’, or the use of discarded items, through their craft of Alaskan salmon skin wallets. Using skin only from fisheries that are managed sustainably and certified by 3rd parties, these wallets are one of a kind and come in a variety of colors. The skin is tanned over a 3-week period and the result is incredibly durable and lightweight with a leather-like feel.
Styles include tri-folds, wallets and smart phone cases. Image from Tidal Vision.
