American Alligator (Alligator Mississippiensis)

The American alligator (alligator mississippiensis) is native to the Southeast USA. Alligator skin comes from alligators that are both farm-raised and captured in the wild, although always bred in the wild. The American alligator is one of the least bony of the 23 species of crocodile. As a result, the alligator skin is softer and has smoother scales than other types of crocodile skin, making it among the most luxurious Skin in the leather markets.

Pan American Leathers (PAL) offers crust and finished alligator skin in sizes 20 cm wide  x 3 ft long to 90+ cm x 14+ ft long, across all grades. Customers can pick from our NYC showroom stock for immediate delivery or order production from our upstate NY tannery. For production, customers can select from our 40+ standard colors in a variety of finishes or provide a swatch or pantone reference for a custom order. As our tannery and showroom are both NY-based, product development is seamless and deliveries are much shorter for US customers than other alligator skin tanneries or distributors.

In addition, we offer alligator skin custom tanning for customers with their own raw hides. We can process to crust or finished.

PAL alligator skin services the belt, footwear, garment, handbag, home, watchstrap and Western industries. Please call, email or schedule an appointment for pricing and delivery information or see our Free Guide To Buying Alligator Skins for more information.
