The result of this happening has been an overseas demand steadily climbing and although not quite as intense an increase domestically as well. They come in a variety of colors and also both glossy and matte finishes. Eel skin has a luminous and natural feel and appearance to it.
American Alligator Hide
Either harvested from the wild or farm raised, it is the Southeastern United States that the Alligator Hide is indigenous to. Their skins are prized both for their incredible texture and quality.

They are terrific for hand-stitching efforts because although they are extremely thin they do not tear easily at all. In the world of high fashion Lizard skin has truly come into high demand.

The front or back incisions when the skin is opened are the determination what the cut is. Because there is currently a far greater demand these days for back cut skins certain colorways have become more rare and difficult to find.

We carry over 50 snakeskin colorways, as well as we can custom dye any hide to the colorway of choice. Each hide features a different pattern, as each snake is different, so no two hats are the same.
