Alligator Atelier Ferrer

ALLIGATOR - It is extremely durable and strong. Requiring a cut  different from those used for other leathers, rare and precious alligator hides exhibit exceptional character and unconventional longevity. Alligator skin differs from crocodile skin because the round scales are smaller in size. The belly, tail and head scales are more angular.

The alligator exists in a glossy or matte finish. As the alligator is a protected species, alligator watch straps are always controlled by CITES Certificates.

OSTRICH - Patina, suppleness and character are so many qualities that make ostrich skin as prestigious as crocodile and python. Ostrich leather  exists perfectly with luxury watches in the context of daily use and both on  classic, sports, retro or modern models.
Ostrich skin is characterized by its unusual design. The follicles on the leather caused by the spots left on the hide where the bird's feathers have been removed, giving this hide a unique appearance, returning its structure different from other hides. The number of follicles dictates the price of the skin.

Nappa Atelier Ferrer

NAPPA - Presents its open pores and the natural properties of the leather are easily recognized, since it cannot be covered with dyes or varnishes, only with aniline dyes (organic compound).

For this reason, the quality is the best in leather as imperfections in the skin such as insect bites, spike scratches or other marks cannot be covered.

LIZARD - Before the crocodile and the alligator, the lizard was used extensively for watch straps.

If at first the lizard skin wristwatches were intended for

men more than women, over time, became almost exclusively

"reserved" for the ladies...

The advantage of the lizard is its price: it is the cheapest of the reptiles. The appearance of the colors of the lizard tanned hides is simply phenomenal. Lizard is one of the toughest leathers out there.
