Maison Takuya's most precious leather is that of Alligator Mississippiensis tanned in France. The tanneries we use supply the most exclusive luxury brands and provide the highest quality of Alligator skins. All our skins are CITES certified, guaranteeing that the animals have been hunted or farmed in accordance with the rules set by the CITES for the protection of endangered species. The finishes chosen for the Maison Takuya Alligator skins ensure different types of rich patinas through time. Due to the unique pattern of each skin, your item may show a different appearance than the item featured on the website. Please note that our Alligator skins cannot withstand the contact with water. In case of any contact with oil, cosmetics or water, the leather should be immediately wiped with a dry cloth.
