Alligator belly leather comes from beneath the alligator's skin or crocodile skin. The underside of the crocodile's belly, tail, and chin are collectively referred to as the "belly skin." This is the most valuable piece of skin for leather because it is smooth and flat.

Feature:

  • Soft touching and looking because of the smooth-surfaced texture
  • The softness makes belly leather easy to work with  
  • Flexibility, bendy, suitable for making belt or wallet

Why should you choose belly leather 

The belly doesn't have that strong-personalities look like Hornback skin. The best thing about belly alligator skin is the softness and uniform look. Belly alligator leather has a smooth texture with no horn, flat like cow leather. However, belly leather has a unique alligator pattern on it.
