Have You Seen Shagreen?

Do you know about shagreen? It’s the newest “it” texture, and you will be seeing it a lot in the coming months. Originally, it came from the rough part of the hide of animals, but now real shagreen mainly comes from the skin of sharks and rays. Shagreen’s main characteristic is its small round granulations, which give it a very distinctive look. The word shagreen comes from the French word, chagrin, now meaning anxiety, vexation, embarrassment, or annoyance.

But we’ll have none of that here, because all of our shagreen pieces are gorgeous!

We have some beautiful accessories in shagreen, including the bracelet, above, and an iphone cover in a lovely pale grey, and a wallet on the upper right, in a pale aqua with turquoise edging.

How about this sunny orange wallet and iphone cover?

Stop by and check out our other shagreen items! The more you look, the more you’ll find!

As always, please contact Eric at the shop for more information on any of the items you see here!
