Each piece is handcrafted with love for ocean folks by Beyond Ocean in Homer, Alaska. Wild-caught Alaskan salmon skin is tanned, dyed, and coated with epoxy for a waterproof seal. Due to the nature of the material, each has a unique scale pattern and color, making them a one-of-a-kind piece. Caught by owner Morgan Edminster and her female crew aboard the gill netter F/V Holly Ann, the skin is a byproduct of sustainably-fished salmon and otherwise would be discarded.
