Python Genuine Skin
Snake skins are very desirable for shoes because of the unique grain, scales, and colour patterns. Snakes are skinned in two ways, cut down the belly scales leaving the small scales in the centre, “belly” or “front” cut python, and cut down the back leaving the wide belly scale in the centre, called “back” cut python. We use the “front” cut python.
The scales were the snakes protection from the elements and are essentially like a callous, dead skin.The size of the scale will vary depending upon the area of the skin cut.The scales have a “lip” open toward the tail will grab and aid the snake in crawling. This lip is your assurance that the snake is genuine.
Animal Welfare Information
We source Exotic Skins from a processor that use sound animal husbandry and humane animal treatment / slaughtering practices whether farmed, domesticated, or wild (managed). Also, leather suppliers must screen tanning processes against the LWG Protocol to ensure adherence to best environmental practices (https://leatherworkinggroup.com).
Artisan Hand Painting & Hand Cutting
Please, bear in mind that each individual skin is unique and genuine. Images and 3D textures are shown for illustration purpose only. Our artisans will hand paint and hand cut each shoe piece as per your request. Also, our hand cuttingartisans will arrange the cutting patterns on the leather based on their own experience and craftsmanship. Please, understand that due to the above,there might be differences in scale pattern, size and tonebetween two different cuts.
