Baby Zigrino Line Details
Zigrino means “stingray” in Italian. Cortina created Baby 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. When dyed, the result is a two-toned, translucent coloration throughout the skin. Cortina also offers the Zigrino line which has the same exotic look on a larger scale.
Note: Environmentally friendly Zingrino is lead-free and emits low VOCs.
