ABOUT OUR MATERIALS
Python skin is a very smooth exotic skin with scales. Original from Southeast Asia, it is the most sophisticated and exquisite of all exotic skins. Its touch is fine and delicate, and it is known for its great variety of colors, its flexibility and its durability. It becomes more beautiful with time as its scales open naturally and the skin becomes more silky and supple. Its true beauty can be appreciated only through the years.
All our skins have the CITES certificate (Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species of Wild Fauna and Flora), which regulates the international trade of exotic species and guarantees the legal, sustainable and traceable commercialization of them, supporting the conservation of the wild species and contributing to a sustainable development.
