In order to protect the natural crocodile population, all crocodile skins used are based on modern wildlife management which adheres strictly to the rules and regulations laid down by the Convention of International Trade of Endangered Species. Therefore appropriate permits are provided with each product.

Uniquely Australian, there is no other type of crocodilian that has the soft, bone free leather required to utilise the raised “scutes” that run down the back of the Saltwater Crocodile.  Because of the three dimensional contours it cannot be imitated like other leathers.
The rarity of this product is enhanced by the fact that only one belt can be made from each crocodile.  Each belt is made without any joining to ensure that the owner is more likely to wear out before the belt.

The hides are selective sourced from Australia Crocodile Traders own crocodile farms which are recognised by CITES (Convention of International Trade of Endangered Species of Wild Flora and Fauna) so when you invest in a crocodile product you are making a worthwhile commitment and a meaningful contribution to wildlife.
