Clothes made from Ocean Shrimp and Crab Shells
Glasses and Goggles
Erik de Laurens
"I created a surprising material made of 100% fish scales ( no added compound ). The fishing industry generates several circumstances
where many tons of fish scales are leftover. Using this waste as resources for the production of his fish-scale-plastic, I tried to
highlight the potentiality of these industrial flaw.
In order to test the material I have designed 3 pairs of goggles and glasses inspired by swimming goggles and a table with an inlay of
a fish. I have also extended the range of colours in the tumbler previously designed.

"Cycling Clothing Made from Trash
Sounds crazy, but at Atayne, that's what we do. We take materials that are destined for a landfill (plastic bottles, old
clothing, fabric scraps, coconut shells, and crab shells) and work with our partners to turn them into high quality
and high performing cycling clothing and jerseys."
Woman's Yoga Pant
"Material92% Polyester and 8% Spandex combined with Chitosan (a natural biomass made of crab and/or shrimp shells,
certified by the US Environmental Protection Agency) creates a fabric that is naturally breathable, anti-bacterial,
moisture wicking, and durable."
"Crabyon fiber is realized with a blend of chitosan and viscose. Chitosan is a product derived from
a compound of natural origin obtained from the shell of crab and shellfish."

"While Yogini looks great and offers exceptional comfort, we’re no slackers when it comes to substance. The fabrics we use
are Chito Santé, (100% anti-microbial and environmentally friendly polyester made from crab and /or shrimp shells,

Surfs Well Swim Wear
"Surfswell is proud to be the first swimwear brand to use ChitoSante in our bikinis. ChitoSante is a new environmentally
friendly treatment that is made from a natural biomass called Chitosan, which is made from crab and/or shrimp shells.
ChitoSante is created when Chitosan is combined with textile fibres during the finishing process. The resulting fabric
is incredibly soft, breathable, durable and fast drying. Along with these benefits, ChitoSante has natural and
durable anti-bacterial properties so it strongly inhibits the growth of bacteria, which is great if you are spending
a lot of time in your bikini."

debossed Hilfiger text. Topstitched edges. Genuine Leather."
"The handbags and the accessories I make are mainly made of wolf-fish and salmon from Iceland and the leather of
perch, caught in the lakes of Africa where I lived for a period of my life. To some, the idea of fish leather made into
handbags, is perhaps strange at first, but when you do open up to it, and embrace them hands and hip, you´ll know you´ve found a
scaled friend for life."
"Fish skins, exotic, durable, and magnificent. Fish leather is one of exotic leather products we are proud to offer."
Fish Leather Books
Zen Fish Leather
"Zenfish Leather produces quality leather sketchbooks and leather journals for creative people."
"Fish skins are an eco-friendly alternative to animal leather because ocean leather manufacturers use the by-product of the skin from
fish farmers who are catching non-endangered species for human consumption. Fish skin is praised as being one of the strongest
leathers on earth, as well as having an uncanny elasticity."
Sea Leather Wear
"We are a Canadian company and the agent of a fish leather manufacturer, carefully selecting, processing and transforming a
variety of fish skins into a unique and exotic leather."

Medical Supplies made from Ocean Life
"Absorbitol® is a form of soluble fiber also called Chitosan (pronounced kite-o-san) designed to reduce the number of fat
calories your body absorbs. Derived from shellfish, Absorbitol® is typically found in dietary supplements for reducing
cholesterol levels and promoting weight loss."
What is the KytoStat Bandage made from?
The KytoStat Bandage has a unique pad that is fabricated from chitosan, a naturally occurring material derived from shrimp shells. Once in bandage form, it is joined with a latex free adhesive backing and is then sterilized.
Is there a problem using HemCon products on people with shrimp or shellfish allergies?
There have been no known allergic reactions as a result of using the HemCon Bandage since distribution began in 2003 and there have been no adverse effects reported in over 1,000,000 bandages shipped.
HemCon Medical Technologies, Inc. has results from a shellfish allergy study conducted by its chitosan supplier which demonstrates that, out of 221 individuals with suspected hypersensitivity, including 8 individuals with known shellfish allergies, none demonstrated any dermal sensitivity when pricked with a chitosan test solution. However, since chitosan is extracted from the shells of shrimp and other shellfish, individuals with known shellfish allergies should exercise caution in the use of products containing chitosan.
Biomedical Textiles Article
Biomedical textiles from dibutyrylchitin and chitin
"On the European market there is a lack of innovative biomaterials that aid in regeneration of wound tissue. The project:
aims the design and development: of optimal textile forms for medical applications made from dibutyrylchitin (DBC) and
chitin, from fishery byproducts. Recently a method for the synthesis of dibutyrylchitin is developed. DBC is
easily soluble in common recyclable solvents and has film/fibre forming properties. Chitin can be regenerated (RC).
The products are assumed to have wound healing properties. This opens the way for the development of novel functional
biomaterials made from DBC and RC. Technologies for the production of fibres, yarns, non-wovens and knittings will be
developed. The textiles will be designed to requirements and characterised on mechanical, physico-chemical and
biochemical-medical (in vitro, in vivo) properties. Initiations for approval of medical products will be made.

University of Alabama team turning shrimp shells into high-tech bandages
"Glucosamine Chondroitin is derived from processed crabs and shrimp and it helps our bodies to do those needed
repairs. If we do not, the result if increasing cartilage destruction and inevitably, joint pain. It can range from ‘painful’
to downright ‘crippling.’
What Glucosamine Chondroitin will do is help in building and repairing damaged cartilage. Cartilage is the fibrous substance
that keeps our joints working efficiently and protecting the bony structures. (I.e. without cartilage, bones come into contact
and that is very painful.)"
"CELOX is made of chitosan, a compound derived from shrimp shells. Chitosan has proven antimicrobial properties and is not a
procoagulant. Chitosan is broken down and absorbed through normal metabolic pathways and has an extensive history of use in vascular
closure and in human cardiac surgery. CELOX has a three year history of use in emergency, military, and retail first aid with no reported
Hem Com Bandages
FAQ page: "From what is the HemCon Bandage comprised?
The HemCon Bandage is fabricated from chitosan, a naturally occurring, biocompatible polysaccharide derived from
shrimp shells. The shrimp shells are processed and chemically treated. Once in bandage form, they are sterilized.
Is there a problem using this product on people with shrimp or shellfish allergies?
There have been no known allergic reactions as a result of using the HemCon Bandage since distribution began in 2003 and
there have been no adverse effects reported in over 700,000 bandages shipped.
HemCon, Inc. has results from a shellfish allergy study conducted by its chitosan supplier which demonstrates that, out
