Alexander Noel Design Lab: Exotic Skins (Python, Ostrich and Alligator)
It’s been 3 months since we first introduced Exotic Skins in our Design Lab. Genuine leather skins (alligator, python & ostrich), painted by hand at our factory, matching our painted calf base colors.
Ostrich leather is known for its softness and its unique natural grain, formed by the pattern of its feather sockets. In spite of its softness, ostrich leather is unsurpassed for its tactile strength. It is, in fact, one of the strongest leathers available.
Exceptionally supple and fine, python boasts dramatic scale patterns. The leather is amazingly soft to the touch, with incredible strength and durability. Over time, the scales unfold and the python skin becomes even better. Its unique appearance is instantly recognizable, always maintaining a luxury appeal despite the current fashion trends.
American alligator skin is the ultimate exotic leather. It’s exclusive, delicate and highly expensive. Uniquely soft and pliable, its belly scales are devoid of the bone and follicle markings that characterize crocodile skin, thus lending it that immaculate, iconic look, which makes it the ideal choice for all types of luxury accessories.
