Hi Strap lover, I am very excited to introduce our most recently arrived Alligator Hides from Ultra Premium Alligator Tanner: France Croco. Given the overwhelming demand for our Martinique Bleu, we ask France Croco to check their warehouse for additional hides that might be in that color range. What they came up with are these 2 hides that I think, while slightly different, are just as incredible. While these skins don't show nearly as much antiquing at the edges and on the tail section as the original Martinique Bleu, they are overall the same beautiful turquoise blue with light antiquing between the scales as the most desirable center belly section of the original Martinique bleu hide. We are naming these hides Saint-Tropez Bleu. If you wanted to order a Martinique Bleu strap from Dangerous9straps but were to late, our new Saint-Tropez Bleu is your second chance, but don't hesitate, these skins are going to go very quickly!!
France Croco is a Normandy based Alligator and Crocodile tannery whose hides are among the best available and was recently acquired by Kering (formerly PPR) a holding company that owns such brands as Gucci, Bottega Veneta, Alexander McQeen, Sergio Rossi, and Girard-Perregaux. We are proud to have France Croco as a supply partner enabling us to offer the finest Alligator skin available. The colors and overall quality of the France Croco skins are by far the best I've yet seen. Have a look at this slide show of our France Croco skins. Here is a slide show of recently completed custom straps from France Croco Alligator skins for your review.
