Predation is part of every ecosystem’s balance. Life is based on predation. For this reason, we have no problem using exotic leathers as a resource.
However, we do want to make a point NOT to participate to the unsustainable and cruel killing of wild animals that is common practice in some parts of the world.
If in producing or purchasing a luxury or handcrafted item, one is first interested in a fine look, we believe that only a flawless history, fairness and sustainability can guaranty a long and healthy life to a luxury product and brand.
We are CITES certified
from the Swiss government in order to start the first cruelty free and sustainable alligator leather trade company.
Our Alligators are coming only from:
- Farms carefully selected to match our high cruelty free standards
- Population control under the government control.
- Fair hunting in the limits of quotas and approved hunting practices (no trapping)
Swiss Hides is giving to its customers a chance to know how the product they purchase was produced, and processed. Our total transparency policy allows a willing customer to investigate our sources and verify the conditions of production
We, the Swiss Hides Team, are committed to constantly improve our standards for our customer’s success and satisfaction. Thus a long term relationship based on quality and sustainability can be achieved.
