FISHSkin is a collaborative effort between organizations from six different countries who are invested to promote this sustainable and circular economy project. The purpose of the project is to develop fish skin as a new sustainable raw material for the fashion industry, meaning, to turn wasteful maricultural biproduct into fish skin leather.
As a researcher, I work on different aspects of the project, focusing on: developing natural adhesion techniques for fish skins, natural and local dyeing techniques and 3D digital simulation tools. I research and develop in collaboration with other members of the group.

The Fish Skin Project is a Horizon 2020 supported RISE program that is coordinated by CIRTex, Shenkar.
