Hi strap lovers. I wanted to let everyone know that among the exotic skins that I recently picked from my field trip to one of my suppliers are a couple of really fabulous Shark skins! These were acquired and in fact the whole field trip was prompted by a request from my very good customer David from Houston, Texas, who had a desire for a Navy colored shark skin strap for his blue faced PAM Sub. I looked everywhere and checked with mu suppliers and I could not find any Shark Skin in navy blue anywhere. One of my suppliers, who happens to be local to SoCal suggested that I buy a white (undyed not white shark species) shark skin and then I could dye it any color I liked! One thing led to another and I was invited to make the trip into Marina Del Rey to his shop to check out his very large selection of exotic leathers and skins. I'll be announcing a bunch of new and very special skins that I purchased from him in the coming weeks. Right now though I ended up buying the white shark skin and a wonderful rustic brown nubuck shark as well. Both of these skins are soft, but the nu buck skin is incredibly buttery soft!! The white shark has a surface like a microscopic stingray skin as you can see from one of the photos and has a very cool texture. So, here is some photos of David's Navy Blue Shark strap and some photos of the sharks I bought.

If you've got an idea for a shark strap in navy or any other color, let me know, because I can dye the white into just about any color you can imagine! And if you'd like a rustic brown shark skin strap that is so buttery soft you'll not believe it, let me know, as these skins won't last long.
