Real Crocodile Skin Handbag

Crocodile skin, one of the finest and best of exotic skins, being soft and durable, is rare and therefore expensive, especially since many species of crocodiles are threatened by illegal poaching. So, before laying out good money, you need to be sure that you are investing in a real crocodile skin handbag.

There is a big difference between a real crocodile skin handbag and a stamped leather product. But although it is noticeable on close inspection, it is not so clear at first sight. The safest way to ensure that your crocodile bag is real is to buy from a reputable supplier such as 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.

 

Our knowledgeable staff can explain how genuine crocodile skins differ from fake inferior products. If you inspect the scales with a magnifying glass you will see that crocodile scales possess small dimple-like holes and are usually not flat. Rather, they slope slightly and there are ridges between them. Natural crocodile scales have the same pattern on both sides and grow on top of each other forming a lift-able edge.

Embossed cowhide on the other hand will have a rough interior surface which will not lift and the pattern may be different on each side.

 

Beware of suppliers advertising crocodile skin handbags at a “bargain” price. If it seems too good to be true, it almost certainly is! Also, if the description of the bag contains the word “Like” or is written “Crocodile Genuine Leather” rather than, as we write it, Bangkok Bootery: “Genuine Crocodile Skin”, it’s probably imitation.
