Genuine Crocodile Skin Purse

A genuine crocodile skin purse is expensive, for many valid reasons. So, you want to be sure that what you are buying is not fake. And, a good quality stamped leather can very often look like genuine crocodile skin, and be priced the same. Here are some other ways then to check if your purchase is a genuine crocodile leather purse and not simulated.

Genuine Crocodile Skin Purse


There is a difference between a genuine crocodile leather purse and a stamped leather product and it is noticeable on close inspection, but not at first sight. You can distinguish a stamped leather from genuine crocodile skin purse because the design looks too regular and repetitive, too perfect in the structure and dimensions of each scale forming the design.

Besides that, the thickness of a stamped leather remains too uniform on the scales and on the wrinkles copied from the natural crocodile skin.

Stamped leather is usually glossy while genuine crocodile skin is available both in gloss and matt versions and the effect always looks incredibly refined.

Check carefully how the label on the purse reads. If the description of the bag contains the word “Like” or is written “Purse in Crocodile Skin – Genuine Leather” rather than, as we write it, Bangkok Bootery: “Genuine Crocodile Leather Purse”, then it’s probably imitation.

The safest way to ensure that your crocodile leather purse is not fake is to buy from a reputable supplier like Bangkok Bootery. Even if you make your purchase online from the Bangkok Bootery website, you can be assured that, for over 80 years, we have sourced only genuine, CITES-certified crocodile skins.
