Court historique

From a holistic perspective, the vision of creating a collective ecosystem of opportunities, the coastal zones, their people, their resources, and their fish skins, which were previously thrown into the sea as a by-product of their only means of subsistence, inspired me to create “PL Fish Skin in Leather.”

To date, I have taught my technique and have trained 173 women from coastal communities benefiting 840 families in Honduras and Costa Rica.

9,800 pounds of fish skin have been transformed. Income has increased by 38% in coastal community cooperatives: circular economy, regenerative agriculture, knowledge transfer, job creation and exotic leather.

Histoire

A holistic perspective, and the vision of creating a collective ecosystem of opportunities, have led us to design a premium sustainable material.  

 

We collaborate and operate along coastal communities in the most excluded and challenging-to-access areas, with the highest unemployment rate and nonexistent opportunities in Honduras and Costa Rica.  

 

The lives of remarkable people…and fish skin, previously discarded as a by-product of their only means of subsistence, inspired me to create “Resilience of the Blue Economy and Transformation of Fish Skin into Leather.” 

 

An innovative and disruptive business model. A solution in the closed season. An extra income in each household. Insertion in the world of work beyond subsistence. Community improvement based on own and local resources…aquiculture and textiles. 

 

Our model allows us to evolve the business of each cooperative we are forming in coastal communities, promote sustainability and circularity and prosper their local economies. 

 

We invite designers of garments, accessories, furniture, shoes, interiors, and architects…to create with our prime material. An excellent and sustainable option, with 90 newtons of tensile strength (9 times more potent than cattle hide), to support solutions to promote social progress, livelihood, and economic growth, so that we can address the urgent challenges of migration and climate change.
