Crocodile Skin Belt
Why is a crocodile skin belt more expensive than, say, an ordinary leather, cowhide belt?
Firstly, genuine crocodile skin itself is scarce for a number of reasons. Crocodiles take a long time to reach maturity when compared to cows, have an expensive meat based diet, and have a tendency to damage their own leather, making it unsuitable for use.
Moreover, supply of crocodilian skins is highly controlled by global environmental agencies such as the Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species of Wild Fauna and Flora (CITES).
Secondly, crocodile skin is more difficult to work with than calf. Most genuine crocodile leather belts are made from a series of cuts across the belly. Since these cuts are not long enough to make a belt, they have to be matched for color and scale pattern and spliced together.
However, the primary reason that crocodile skin is expensive is that it is a beautiful leather that is impervious to scuffing and resistant to cracking. So, it is considered the premium and most desirable of exotic skins, in high demand around the world.
