The first uses of stingray skin date back to ancient Asian civilizations who used this rough skin to decorate the handles and the sheaths of swords.

The Samurai Shogun used it mainly for their armor. He began to work this skin for Louis XV and his court applying it to objects never made before.

Almost two centuries later, the great artisans of Art Déco and furniture makers Paul Iribe, Jacques-Emile Ruhlmann, Jean-Michel Frank and John Paul Cooper resumed the tradition of Galuchat using stingray skin in a greater number of pieces, often combining it with inserts in ivory, ebony, precious metals and colored with bright colors.
