About Exotic Skins
Precious skins come from animals normally isolated from human touch. Such lack of familiarity translates into a certain element of secrecy and surprise when one finally touches a well-made handbag derived from an exotic animal. Ostrich leather, for instance, is the softest to the touch. Snake leather is the one with the most variation of texture, even within one species.
• Ostrich leather has a beautiful and sporty look, making it ideal for everyday use. Alternately, given its high durability, this type of leather makes a perfect business or travel bag.
• Python leather has a more aggressive look, especially when it’s hand-painted. A durable and flexible leather, it gets more appealing with years of use.
• Genuine crocodile or alligator leather is considered king of the exotic leather world. Crocodile leather is perfect for night or day, depending on the style and design of the bag; a large shopping bag is an eye-catcher, and a small shiny evening bag can make a sophisticated statement.
A skill that has been kept in the family by Bianchi e Nardi for three generations, agatatura is the manual treatment that employs the natural properties of the agate stone to give precious skins a glossy texture.
