Zigrino means “stingray” in Italian. Cortina created Zigrino to allow designers to showcase the beauty of stingray in a sustainable manner with embossed cowhides. Historically, the skin of a pearl rayfish or stingray was supremely valued for its round, closely-set calcified scales. Cortina replicates this iconic look, sometimes called “shagreen,” and highlights its beauty with a varied collection of tipped, washes and other exotic looks on a pattern that repeats the central “jewel” every eight inches. When dyed, the result is a two-toned, translucent coloration throughout the skin.
Zigrino can be finished with a Crypton protective topcoat for an additional charge.
