One of the things we're always trying to do is to keep folks up to date on the upcoming selection of exotic leathers. This allows you to tell us exactly what type of wallet you want to purchase and means that we have very little waste when we sell as much of a hide as possible. If you want to get in on the first/best parts of a hide it pays to pay attention to our social media. Below you'll see a rundown of our current upcoming batch of alligator hides for wallets. If you would like a specific wallet from any of these hides be sure to contact us and let us know, so we can get you invoiced and on the docket to be crafted.

Antique Granite Alligator Hide

Antique Granite Alligator Hide - a matte cream color with black antiquing between scales for dramatic contrast.

Forest Green Alligator

Forest Green Alligator - A rich green with a glossy finish.

Honey Alligator

Honey Alligator - A warm, tan alligator hide with a glossy finish.

Cadet Blue Alligator

Cadet Blue Alligator - A neutral blue-gray hide with a matte finish.

Cognac Alligator

Cognac Alligator - A matte tan hide with a "pull-up" finish. Pull-Up finish is similar to an oil tanned cowhide. The hide is laden with wax and oil that amplifies marks and creases in the hide, giving it a "worn" or "aged" appearance.

To celebrate we're having a contest! The winner will get a whopping $250 Gift Card to our store! All you have to do is predict the winner, and guess the final score(for tie-breakers). We're obviously pretty stoked to see our Chiefs headed to the big game!

The Forging and Casting fundraiser is live! If you head to that page you'll find a place where you can support/donate towards our goal. We're aiming to get a few new machines this year that will improve the quality of the metal studio. Namely, we're looking at getting a 3D Printer and a Vacuum Sealed Casting Machine. Each of these machines will enable us to more efficiently craft specialized hardware. Currently the forged belt buckles take an exorbitant amount of time to craft, and you can see that reflected in what I have to charge for the belts in order to turn some sort of profit. That being said, when you're a very small team its in everyone's best interest to make things as efficient as possible on the production side of things. Luckily we live in an era where technology makes it much more viable for a small team like ours to make a large selection of items, provided you can afford to purchase said technology.
