Always wondered about the white “Eye” seen on many stingray leather products.
Well I found this video:
Good, I like the more natural look of the leather better.
I wonder if the diamond originated as an artifact of sanding down the spines post-tanning and then the process changed to sanding before tanning and dyeing.
There’s an article I read that didn’t outright say it, but you seem him mention that the nodules need to be “Spay Dyed” (which I read as “Painted”) because they don’t accept the die like the dermis does. Given that those nodules are much bigger in the center of the back, I can assume that a piece of stingray dyed like say a piece of cow hide, would have whitish dots on it. These dots would be largest in the middle in a roughly diamond pattern, I assume.
