Alligator Skin Belly Cognac


View Leather Buying Guide to learn more.

Skin Type: Alligator Skin Belly (A Grade)

Tannage: Chrome

Uses: Bags, Shoes, Wallets, Small Leather Goods

These Alligator Skins are genuine gators farm-raised in the United States. American alligator skin is the ultimate exotic leather. Uniquely soft and pliable, its belly scales are devoid of the bone and follicle markings that characterize crocodile skin, thus lending it that immaculate, iconic look, which makes it the ideal choice for all types of luxury accessories, including belts, footwear, handbags, wallets and other small leather goods. The classic "belly cut" features the alligator's underside, including the belly, and tail, and is the largest piece of leather derived from the skin. This, together with the scale pattern, is why it tends to be regarded as the "premium cut."Skin size ranges between 30-35 cm - the measurement being taken from edge to edge across the belly's widest point. Currently offered here exclusively in a heritage Cognac tone. However, more sizes and colors are available upon request. Each skin is A Grade with minimal imperfections.
