These fish leather handbags are both exotic and eco-friendly. Using seafood industry byproducts, Heidi and Adele makes luxury bags and accessories out of materials like eel skin and salmon leather. The London-based brand uses the under-used fabric as an alternative to other leathers.

Given the concerns many have about the global leather market, this sourcing solution is ahead of the curve. Instead of traditional reptile skins, Heidi and Adele make their fish leather handbags out of products that would normally be considered garbage. Their materials come directly from suppliers, such as eel skin from a South Korean farm.

Their collection includes everything from shoulder bags, purses and clutches to accessories like wallets, key rings and card holders. Fish leather is also easy to dye, so their products come in a variety of colors too.
