Fish Furnish Leather for Making Shoes
Fish skins, specially dried and tanned, are now being used in Italy for the manufacture of shoes. Six or seven skins pressed tightly together into one thickness are shaped into shoe uppers that are said to be strong and serviceable. Although the fish-skin material is made especially for shoes, it is also used for making machine belts and brake linings.
