Many thanks to those who have sent pictures of their work with fish leather, which are usually being posted to Google Plus and LinkedIn.
Sea Leather Wear began in 2005. Back then, Youtube had just started, Amazon was just recently profitable (2003) after 9 years in business, "Android" only meant a human-like robot, and it would take another 5 years before people would be using phones to search the World Wide Web.
"Keeping up with Sea Leather Wear" isn't yet a TV show. But you can subscribe to the newsletter, connect on LinkedIn, and check the Google Plus page occasionally. We are not on Facebook, but we are likeable .
There have been some recent additions to the Odds and Ends section of the website, which includes some suede sea bass packages. Check out our Monthly Specials!
