Smoothed water buffalo bone and “sharkskin” are paired to create these beautiful frames.  Sharkskin or shagreen, is actually intricately cut ridges on sustainable water buffalo bone. This exotic, mysterious finish used to be made from the real skin of sting-rays or sharks, and dates back centuries for the seeming contradiction of exquisitely soft and hard skin.  The pebbled, textured skins were prized by warriors for their extreme strength and durability, fashioned into breastplates and sword handles for a no-slip grip.   

Frame sizes: 4 x 6, 5 x 7, and 8 x 10
