Turning The Tide

Two entrepreneurs saw an opportunity where everyone else saw trash, transforming discarded tuna skins into stunning leather goods. In this short video, it explores the fascinating world of Etsy shop Khogy, which aims to inspire environmental action with accessories made from local waste materials in Sri Lanka. Khogy’s founders, Jenny and Caroline, are committed environmentalists and entrepreneurs. When they learned of the millions of tons of fish skins discarded every year by the fishing industry, they saw an opportunity. By reclaiming tuna skins, tanning them, and transforming them into a unique collection of leather accessories, they are creating objects that share a powerful story about the world we live in.
