For centuries, tortoise shell has been in high demand making the Hawksbill sea turtle an endangered species because of the exploitation of the material. Inlaid tortoise shell veneers can be seen on furniture, frames and small items such as combs, jewellery boxes, ornaments and many other items.
The worldwide trade of tortoise shell was banned under CITES in 1973. Fortunately, mankind is able to replicate the style of tortoise shell in synthetic materials and plastic so that we can still enjoy the beauty of tortoise shell without endangering the sea creature.
