The crocodile bag – harm or benefit for conserving the species?
* N.B. Everything indicated below refers to crocodile leather products; Such information, however, also applies to python leather products. Principles and ideas are quite similar.
Imagine a chic leather crocodile bag displayed in the showcase of a trendy boutique in the city centre. How do you feel looking at it? Enchanted by its exclusivity and driven by the desire to buy it right away? Bothered by the use of the skin from an exotic animal? Or totally indifferent? Have you ever heard of Cites?

You don’t believe it? It is, however, exactly the case! Let’s see together how it works.
