Accessorize with Salmon

I got to get a pair of cowboy boats like this.  After the click you can actually order from Alantic Leather.  I think this would work great in Juneau.  We have the hatchery right here and the tourists would eat it up.  I expect this market will explode within the next few years.

Over the years, several Alaska entrepreneurs have tried to launch salmon leather enterprises, but they didn’t have staying power. In fact, a lone man from Kodiak appears to be the only person in the state commercially producing the skins, and his aren’t for sale as raw leather. He keeps the hides to himself and uses them to create specialty leather goods.

via Could demand for salmon leather spawn a new cottage industry for Alaska?.
