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 consistently among the best I've yet seen.
Caramel D'or: Similar in color to our France Croco Armagnac, but with an even more luminous golden hue, these hides are simply stunning. The light/dark areas within and between the scales is extraordinary and what gives these hides their incredible beauty. These are the hides that really blew out budget, but the moment I saw them, I new I hand to have them, cost be damned!
Starry Night: Andrea loves this strap and is certain the other ladies will as well. Starry Night is a dark mid-nigh blue with a beautiful fine metallic flake finish, giving it a formal pearl like appearance. I think it could also look great on a mans watch for more formal occasions. It's very subtle and in some light, will look black - very difficult to capture the beauty of this hide in photos. This hide is really a one of a kind deal for us and so if you are looking for a deep blue dress strap for formal occasions, I recommend ordering right away.
Dark Olive: This hide is very cool, a nice dark Olive (Army Green) with more of a matted finish and great color variation within the scales. This is perhaps one of the most masculine colors I offer in any leather. If you've got a military watch that needs a strap, you can't go wrong here:
Cognac: This is just about the perfect color for Cognac and will make a stunningly sophisticated strap that would look great with a suit and a pair of tan or cognac loafers or brogues and can paired casually as well with jeans. The depth of color is stunning with a darker, antique color than the Caramel d'or above. This hide is also larger than the Caramel D'or, which will be perfect for larger watches like Panerai and Breitlings.
