What Is Pirarucu Leather?
The pirarucu is one of the largest freshwater fish in the world. Its native habitat is the Amazon, where it can grow up to six to ten feet in length. Its skin grows in multiple layers of large, diamond-shaped scales to ward off bites from the piranha, which means its skin is both unique in appearance and just as durable as cowhide. You will recognize pirarucu due to its well-defined repeating scales that set it apart from other fish and reptilian leathers.
How Do You Take Care Of Pirarucu Boots?
While the pirarucu is a fish, its leather is not naturally waterproof. Avoid getting your custom cowboy boots wet. Remove dirt using a soft brush, and remember to wipe under the tips of the scales. Your boot care supplies should include these items.
- Cedar Boot Trees
- Soft Bristle Brush
- Soft Cloth
- Exotic Leather Conditioner
- Leather Waterproofing Agent
Is Pirarucu An Eco-friendly Leather?
Pirarucu is an eco-friendly leather option. While the pirarucu was listed as a threatened species just 25 years ago, its population has rebounded to over 200,000 in recent years, making it eligible as a food and leather source. The local Amazonian fishermen are paid a premium to harvest the leather of the pirarucu as well as its meat to help support the economy and reduce the impact on other fish populations.
