When asked to cook fish, women ensure that the skin, bones and flesh is cleared properly before commencing the process. These residues that you throw in the dustbin can help you to grab the attention of everyone when visiting a party. You all must be familiar with jackets, shoes, wallets and bags being made from cow skin, goat skin or sheep skin but how you ever thought that the transparent like fish skin, bones and flesh that you throw away can be used for any such manufacturing purpose? Of course not but Newton Owino, an industrial chemist has come up with products that can eradicate this thought completely from your mind.

This 39 year old man carefully separates the fish skin from the body followed by letting the same undergo a tanning process to resemble leather like material. This is then used for making wallets, shoes, jackets, handbags and hats. While Nile perch and grilled tilapia are very famous in the regions in and around Kisumu, Lake Vitoria, cleaned fillets of these fishes are exported worldwide from here. This is where Mr. Owino came across the idea of using these leftovers as an opportunity to enjoy growth. According to reports, about 1 lakh 50 thousand tonnes of fish waste is generated each year with almost 80 percent of the same being dumped and wasted. With this he thought of getting this fish skin converted into leather and add colours to the dream he saw. The flesh is taken out from the skin, washed and hung aside to get them dried. Then the flesh is dyed using avocado, papaya or other fruit juice. It is then passed through several processes and given the shape of wallets, bags, shoes and others.
