WELCOME TO THE ATELIER.
Atelier AKNAS produces leather goods and accessories out of its exclusive galuchat (Stingray leather). All our skins come from cooperatives of independent fishermen and are a by-product of traditional and non-industrial South China and Andaman seas food-fishing. The stingrays are caught in the wild for their "wings", which are sold at the market as food, the skin of their back, covered with this very unique array of beads, is normally discarded along with the skeleton and internal organs. Atelier AKNAS's place in this cycle helps limit waste and provide additional revenue to these fishermen. Atelier AKNAS and its products strictly abide by the Washington Convention on Endangered Species (CITES).
