American Alligator Leather

American alligator leather is, to me, one of the most beautiful and luxurious leathers in existence and a vintage find, although rare, is certainly rewarding.

Over the years I’ve clocked a lot of hours digging through antique shops and flea markets in search of vintage alligator pieces.

American Alligator No. 3 Grip Travel Bag

The exclusivity and expense of products made of alligator is due in part to the fact that the alligator is found only in the southeastern United States inhabiting freshwater wetlands from Texas to North Carolina. Hides are sold by the centimeter, and only a small portion of the hide can be used in the production of alligator products thus adding to the expense.

Crafting products from alligator is an art that can only be accomplished well at the hands of an experienced and meticulous craftsman.

American Alligator No. 1 Grip Travel Bag and other products

During the last few years, we have slowly built up a small collection of American alligator products which are handcrafted in our workshop here in Lynnville, TN. You should allow a couple of extra days when ordering a product in American alligator since most of our alligator products are made as ordered.

I can assure you that your wait will be rewarded.

WHERE CRAFTSMANSHIP AND ARTISTRY INTERSECT

It never occurred to me that I should go into business to make ordinary products.  As we all know, that market is already very well represented.  People come to Col. Littleton in search of extraordinary.

In the final analysis once the vision is established, value almost always equates to time and materials . . . the time it takes to make something and the materials from which it’s made.  All Col. Littleton products  are handcrafted and all are made of quality materials.  However, some products, such as the American Alligator leather portfolios on these two pages, are made from start to finish in our Special Products Department by one highly-skilled craftsperson who works in tandem with me.  I personally select the hides with the right “personality” for specific products and determine how each hide is to be cut and matched for the most pleasing end result. These products are destined to become works of art, and the time and materials afforded them goes above and beyond what you might expect.
