Product Line: Galuchat Cowhide (GL)


View all: Animal Prints or Patterns  |  Contemporary  |  Embossed & Gaufrage


Galuchat, meaning sharkskin or stingray skin was named after Louis XV's master leather artisan, Jean-Claude Galuchat, who introduced this exotic material to France during the 18th century. He used the scarce skins to manufacture luxurious items such as jewelry boxes and various furniture. The first signs of this alluring textile dates back to 8th century Japan where it was used for breastplates, sheaths, and the handles on swords, due to its resilient texture.

Our Galuchat is made as an embossed cowhide with multiple hand effects, reminiscent of the handiwork of the original Galuchat. The 11 colors and highlighted center jewel of Galuchat are characteristic of genuine stingray finishes. The characteristic finish effect of this leather artwork is applied by hand; the resulting variance in design and color are part of its natural beauty.
