Shagreen, resin

Accueil > Furniture > Shagreen, resin

Shagreen, which was invented in 1755 by Jean-Claude Galluchat, is a type of leather obtained from cartilaginous fish (rays or sharks). The material has long been used in cabinet-making, upholstery and, more recently, leather goods.

A balance of leather and mineral, shagreen is covered in silica beads and is thus difficult to tan. It comes in various textures: grainy and shiny, or well sanded. In the latter case, the material is smooth and shows a sectioned surface of little cells like glittering beads, according to Wikipedia. Our shagreen is made of resin, but beautifully executed.
