* Ilse Koch, the wife of a Nazi concentration camp commander, purportedly had gloves and lampshades made out of inmates' skin. This came up in trials, but wasn't proven to legal standards.

** Earlier in ''Tales'', if you have Rhys call Vasquez "Wallet Head" after an old insult Handsome Jack gave him, Vasquez will threaten to save some of Rheese' skin after killing him to make a wallet to "remember him by".

* One of the ''VideoGame/AssassinsCreedSyndicate'' Dreadful Crimes reveals that a series of disappearances were caused by [[spoiler:a leatherworker who killed people and sold off their body parts covertly as fertilizer, meat, and leather goods made from their skin]].

* The ''Series/{{Grimm}} episode "The Silence of the Slams" has a luchadore mask-maker who very rarely creates a MaskOfPower out of the flayed face of a Wesen. Since the magic ritual brings out the victim's GameFace, no-one who wasn't in on TheMasquerade could guess it was human(oid) skin.

** When Ramsay tells his dad he wants to flay an ally of theirs he doesn't like and make boots out of her skin, his father is horrified, but [[DoWrongRight not for the obvious reason]]. He knows from experience that human leather is too thin and weak for such purposes, and they'd wear out within weeks.

He knows from experience that human leather is too thin and weak for such purposes, and they'd wear out within weeks. What's more, their allies, should they find out, would object rather forcefully, and [[PragmaticVillainy Pragmatic Villain]] Roose Bolton would prefer to keep those allies on his side.

** Not just Medieval; it's not even prohibitively expensive to buy a 19th century volume bound in human skin. (Don't worry ''too'' much; the skin was usually a byproduct of the dissection of cadavers in anatomy classes, and when it wasn't it was most often done at the request of the deceased in his/her will. There are also a few documented cases where the published records of the trials for particularly grisly murders were bound in the skin of the executed murderer, but these were the exception, not the rule.)

* ''WesternAnimation/{{Metalocalypse}}'' had an episode where Dethklok creates their own line of S&M styled clothes (made of leather, of course). The fashion designer hints at this trope throughout the episode with several ominous references to his "special leather", but the end of the episode has the band discovering the truth, and after all the not-so-subtle hints, {{the reveal}} is so over-the-top that it arguably CrossesTheLineTwice. When the band actually find this out, rather than declaring it metal, they're so horrified that they scream continuously with Nathan pausing momentarily to fire the designer in question.
