Differences between the commercial cuts

Firstly, talking about snakeskin sale, the classification between Back Cut and Front Cut is very important.

The Back Cut (cut on the belly), preserves the back of the snake intact, although it is certainly the less common. It is used for land or water snakes, but also on lizards, iguanas, monitors lizards and on some fishes and mammals. It is not that common because it consists in cutting those characteristic large and sturdy scales located on the animal's belly in half, along their length. It allows the maximum appreciation of the beauty of the scales and the natural design on the animal's back.

The Front Cut (cut on the back), preserves intact the belly. It is very common particularly for pythons, because they have their characteristic main scale located in the middle, along the animal's length, which is in contact with the ground and allows the animal to crawl.

Differences between Embossed and Genuine Snake

The genuine Snakeskin is highly Priced, instead the embossed leather is cheaper and usually comes from calf leather. The second one is the most common kind you can find around.

Applications of snakeskin

Snakeskin adapts easily to every application, both for footwear and for leather goods, even if, almost all the times, the tendency is to create elegant items like shoes or high heeled boots, bags or purses with high quality accessories and high level wallets. The production of belts is a bit harder because, talking for instance about the main scale in the Front Cut, just one belt per skin will show it, not all the other ones.
