Our American Alligator leather is a chrome-tanned leather from Heng Long Tannery in Singapore. Our Alligator leather is 100% sustainably and ethically sourced, imported with a CITES permit.
Tannery: Heng Long, Singapore
Surface: Smooth scaled
Water Resistance: Low. To ensure longevity, avoid moisture or soaking our straps in water.
As our straps are handcrafted with natural leather, each strap will be unique and may have slight variations to the product photo.
American Alligator is best known for their clean scales compared to crocodile which has a follicle on each scale. For our straps, we only use the rectangular/oval scales from the body, and tail of the alligator.
NOTE: While the import of alligator watch straps does not usually require a permit, some states and territories have banned the trade of such materials (e.g. California). We are not responsible for any seizures of this product.
Please email us if you have any questions in relation to this.
All of our watch straps are entirely handmade one by one, utilising traditional leather crafting techniques. They are cut, saddle stitched and edge painted by hand to ensure that your strap lasts you a lifetime. All of our straps are lined with Zermatt leather, a hypoallergenic and water-resistant french calf leather.
