Austrian accessories brand BATLINER looks to revive fashion’s use of fish leather.

On our minds is BATLINER, an Austrian accessories brand looking to revive fashion’s use of fish leather. Commonly used in Northern Europe some 5,000 years ago, the Vienna-based brand means that fish skins surpasses most other organic materials for durability and appearance, making it ideal for everyday use leather goods. The range of wallets and cases are created from food industry by-product perch, salmon and cod leathers in a highly personalised process – required by the nature of the material – resulting in one-of-a-kind, unique pieces. Fair working conditions is part of the basic brand principle with artisan manufacturing in family-owned North Italian factories. Visit the brand’s site here.
