Bags and garments made of synthetic human skin

SkinBag is a range of clothing and accessories fabricated from synthetic human skin. The skin is latex that is molded with creases and a texture reminiscent of human flesh. SkinBag comes in a variety of colors, the most common of which emulate known values of human skin.

According to the manufacturer, SkinBag is an extension of one’s body, a type of discarded skin that retains an identity, “a successful alchemy between the captivating and the repulsive, for a sensual fashion without complacency.” Each SkinBag is handcrafted and may be personalized with a tattoo or inscription.
