Snakeskins are thin, but quite tough and nice to work with. Young (sustainably farmed) cobra has a nice even scale pattern - this is a back hide.
The only requests I had were an exotic in a bright merlot shade, mirror finished sides, and steel tubes. I had this hide and once it was seen, was described as the perfect colour.
It is layered over a base of 4oz veg tanned leather, has minimal black accent stitching, and is lined with a black-dyed deerskin. It is off to spend its days dressing up PAM 005.
