The alligator leather we use comes from farms in Louisiana, U.S.A. Graae Copenhagen´s suppliers have committed to the highest standards of responsibility in accordance with the CITES agreement and have given their assurance that such farms in Louisiana contribute to the stable growth of wild alligators, thus protecting this endangered species.
For the alligator belts, we use the skin-parts from the belly and parts of the tail of the animal. For this reason, about 2 to 3 strips can be cut out of one skin on average and it takes up to 80 steps partially carried out by hand to produce an alligator belt.
Alligator skin is among the most precious leather types and has become one of the most sought-after materials within the luxury industry. Alligator belts combine quality, simplicity, and the highest technical standards.
