These American Alligator (Mississippiensis) hides are tanned in France by one of the top tanneries supplying the luxury brands. The skins are the highly sought after farm raised which is the highest quality available.
The skins are mostly Grade 1 and 2. The grading is done on the belly portion only. There are no scratches and very clean scales. They are immaculate!
The skins are all CITES II tagged and approved ensuring they were imported meeting all regulations and guidelines. The hides are farm raised (highest quality) for meat and the skin is a byproduct.
Alligator is measured across the belly. So when you see 29cm, this means the skin is 29 cm wide across the belly area. Some Estimate dimensions are:
- Thickness: 0.8mm
- Head Size: 15m wide by 20cm long
- Belly Size: 28/29cm wide by 30cm long
- Tail Size: 20cm wide by 50cm long
A few skins may have a small 1x3" sections of tail removed by the tannery for production/color testing.
The Head has beautiful small scales that are great for card holders, other small leather goods and accents
The Belly has beautiful square shaped scales and round shaped flanks that provide a ton of options. These are traditionally used in luxury goods like wallets, clutches, small purses, watch straps and other small leather goods. The 28 & 29cm width is great for so many of these items
The Tail has a unique slightly taller and more rectangular scales that are popular for watch straps, purse straps, cases, wallets, and many other small leather goods.
