Ocean Leather Collection by Decorum Est

Decorum Est has launched a new tile collection made from the skins of cod, perch, wolffish and salmon. The leathers are combined with calfskin to create new contrasting patterns. These luxurious leathers can be used for a textured finish on walls, furniture and floors.

“At Decorum Est we are always looking to push boundaries in design by pioneering new decorative stone surfaces and ceramics,” says co-founder Steve Charles. “Fish leather has been used in the fashion industry for years but never has it been overlaid onto stone for use on walls and flooring. We have used specialist finishes to accent the delicate look of the leather and create an opulent feel to the collection, underpinned by the exceptional level of craftsmanship which is very much at the core of what we do.”

Salmon is smooth and thin, making it the most versatile fish leather for colouring. Perch stands out when combined with metallic finishes, as it has a rough and thick texture. Wolffish is scaleless and the darkest of the leathers, with the smoothest textures and a striking spotted pattern. Cod leather is supple and thin, yet extremely strong. It has an unusual combination of smooth and rough textures, creating a unpredictable material.
