How do you know about crocodile and alligator leather products and why should we possess them?

 

Ⅰ. What are crocodile and alligator leather?

      Why the texture of the crocodile leather goods received is not the same as the description picture?

Crocodile skin is very scarce in the world. As a rare, precious, and special species, due to the picky breeding conditions, breeding technology, and complexity, it cannot be sent to breed and produce in large quantities like cowhide. Therefore, its output is extremely small. The biggest feature of crocodile leather is that during use, its luster will not fade with the passage of time. Fresh.

Why is it said that each crocodile's skin is unique? because the texture of each crocodile's skin is like a human fingerprint and never repeats.  Therefore, each piece of crocodile leather is a collection with a distinctive personality.

 

Ⅱ. Why the crocodile and alligator leather goods so expensive?

      Honorable, Valuable, Symbol of Wealth

Usually, an ordinary dinner bag needs to "sacrifice" more than two crocodiles to make it. Grodya, who is picky about the material, only needs one out of thousands of high-quality raw materials, so crocodile leather goods have always maintained expensive prices in the market.

The biggest feature of crocodile leather is that during use, its luster will not fade with the passage of time. Fresh.                                                                                                                                                                         

The production technology of crocodile skin is extremely complicated. Due to its own characteristics, from the early stage, the middle stage, to the late stage, each stage requires a complete set of technologies, which are independent and interlocking. If one link is wrong, the obtained effect will be different. Larger and therefore take longer.

 

Ⅲ. Gordya's Crocodile & Alligator Leather Selection

Crocodiles are species in tropical and subtropical regions and have high requirements for the breeding environment. The living environment of the crocodile raw materials chosen by Gordya must be free from any industrial pollution, domestic pollution, and soil pollution. In places with good water quality and fresh air, the water temperature is higher than 18 celsius degrees all year round, and regular spot checks are required. Grodya has strict leather quality control, and the quality needs to reach grade A before it can enter the genuine leather manufacturing process.
Because crocodiles are naturally aggressive, if you need crocodile leather without scars, in order to avoid scars caused by fighting, you need to raise them separately from a young age, which shows the high cost of breeding.

     ※※Porosus Crocodile※※                ※※Nile Crocodile※※                 ※※American Alligator※※              ※※Siamensis Crocodile※※
       ① Porosus Crocodile
It is the largest species of crocodile. The cortical pattern is uniform and neat, and the slub pattern is the most orderly and densely arranged, with a high proportion of slub pattern. The crocodile body is long and narrow, about 5 times the length of the head, and the length of the tail is about the sum of the head + torso. There are tiny pores, and Porosus on the market is extremely rare. Hermes crocodile products are extremely expensive. Leather materials are generally used for luggage. From the perspective of species, there is a relatively obvious difference in price between crocodiles and other species of crocodiles.

       

      ② Nile Crocodile

One of the top-grade crocodile skins, with air holes, the belly is not so long and narrow compared to American crocodile and bay crocodile, and the round pattern on the belly is the largest, which is obviously different from other varieties. Leather is generally used to make bags. Made of Nile crocodile leather, it may be because Luxury Brands uses Nile crocodile for European luxury brand products. Many women's bags on the market are made of Nile crocodiles. Maybe there are other factors I don't know, for example, it is easy to raise, or the texture characteristics are more in line with female aesthetics, and so on. In short, Nile crocodile is high-grade crocodile skin.

 ③ American Alligator

The American alligator we usually refer to is the Mississippi crocodile. There are no stomata, and there are obvious fissures above the cloaca. Stomata and fissures are important signs of this breed. The slub pattern is neat and beautiful, with a clear boundary with the circular pattern, and the circular pattern is dense and relatively small. Leather is suitable for making bags, especially for small leather goods. For example, small leather goods such as watch straps are better than other varieties, and can especially reflect the charm of American alligators. Of course, it does not mean that other varieties cannot be made of small leather goods. Don't get me wrong. For watch straps, the American alligator is the best leather, better than other breeds. The price of American crocodile skin is second only to that of the bay crocodile. Although it is second only to the bay crocodile, it is also a very high-end crocodile skin in the market. For elegant and traditional leather goods, the American alligator is the first choice.

 ④ Siamese Crocodile

Compared with the saltwater crocodile, American crocodile, and Nile crocodile, it is more friendly to the people. The pattern on the belly is also very beautiful, with small air holes, and the ratio of slub pattern to round pattern, I personally think it is also pretty. In fact, when it comes to Siamese crocodiles, it gives people the impression that the grade is not high. If you look at the species and skin From the perspective of the material itself, the Siamese crocodile is not bad, and it is also very good. Siamese crocodile is a large crocodile. The leather material will not ossify and is not hard. Many clothes are made of Siamese crocodiles.

Ⅳ. Handmade Process of Crocodile & Alligator Skin

   How to produce handmade crocodile skin leather 

Crocodile skin itself is a kind of scarce leather material, and the process and technology it needs in the process of bag making and leather making are much more complicated and difficult than ordinary leather species.

 ① Descaling and softening
② Tanning
③ Deep Deying Process
Crocodile skin are not as smooth as other skin types, it has hard scales, and the first step in making it into a handbag must be softened. Craftsmen will perform complicated chemical steps on crocodile skin, such as soaking in water, soaking in alkali, re-dusting, softening, salt washing, and pickling, so that the scales will loosen and fall off, and the leather will swell and become soft. When it has completely shed its hard scales, it will become clear in grain and feel much softer.  Tanning is to remove all the fat, water, salt, and impurities from the crocodile skin itself so that it is easy to preserve and to make the leather moderately swell, soft and hard, and easy to plastic. Tanned crocodile leather feels lighter, more flexible, and waterproof, as delicate as a girl's face.  After polishing to remove the fat of the crocodile skin itself, the cortex becomes dry and dull. In order to make the thickness and color consistency, the craftsman has to open its fiber channels to allow the color and wax to penetrate evenly so that the leather is deeply colored, firm to the touch, and shiny. . Once the color is found to be uneven during the dyeing process, it cannot be repaired, and the entire leather will be eliminated.
④ Carefully selected crocodile skin 
 Cutting of crocodile skin
⑥ Finishing
Crocodile leather products also need selected leather embryos, that is, the original raw leather. She requires the leather surface to be free of defects, such as scars, etc. In the selection of crocodile leather, if you want to get a selected and flawless leather, you must choose at least dozens of them.  Unlike other types of leather with repeated patterns and flat leather surfaces, crocodile skin is not flat, and the texture of each part of each crocodile skin is different. The texture of crocodile skin cut by machinery in batches is dull and lacks aesthetic feeling, and the unique charm of the texture of crocodile skin is buried.  Only experienced crocodile leather craftsmen ingeniously design and cut each piece of crocodile skin with a unique texture. After dozens of processes and tens of hours of careful hand-sewing, the style and the pattern of the crocodile leather are matched. Let every crocodile leather product glow with the charm of life and become an enduring work of art.
