Our ladies handbags are created with genuine leather. We use buffalo, cowhide or alligator leathers or a combination of leathers.
We tan all of our own gator hides to obtain a very unique appearance. We actually tan in a very special way that enables us to create leather that has the exact coloring of the alligator. Tanning in tree bark is a very natural way to tan and gives you a rich brown color. The brown color can vary depending on how long it was exposed to the bark. We have also found an unusual, natural way to obtain a blackish color. There is an interesting reaction that occurs when hides from the bark tan are exposed to rusty metal. The hide turns almost completely black ! So we are able to create an almost black hide without using any chemical dyes.
