Hermès Alligator Bags
Hermès exotic skin bags are the most highly coveted fashion accessory in history. Each is crafted by hand, with the same exceptional quality and attention to detail for which Hermès bags are known. But Hermès alligator bags represent an even greater level of perfection. Each bag is cut from the heart of the skin to flaunt the unique pattern of the umbilical scar centered on the bag’s front. The prominent, tactile scales elevate the bag to one-of-a-kind status. Those who own an alligator Birkin bag can recognize it from all others by the pattern of the scales.
Hermès alligator bags look similar to the atelier’s crocodile bags, but there are clear distinctions. Alligator skin has larger, more symmetrical scale patterns than crocodile skin. Alligators are also significantly smaller than crocodiles, so fewer bags can be made from a single hide. As a result, Hermès alligator bags are typically (but not exclusively) smaller bags, such as the Birkin 25, Kelly 20 and 25, and Mini Constance bags.
Alligator Birkin & Kelly Bags for Sale
Our curated collection includes Hermès shiny alligator (lisse) and Hermès matte alligator bags. The glossy shine is produced by hand buffing with a smooth agate stone, so there is no glaze that can chip or wear away.
When you explore our Hermès alligator selection, you’ll note that some bags are crafted from a conventional leather, like Clemence or Togo, with an alligator flap and handles. These are examples of the Touch collection. These rare Hermès bags offer just “a touch” of exotic skin. Each bag is in stock and available for immediate delivery.
