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