But what makes crocodile skin so special - is it just something to do with luxury?
Certainly much of the preference for this material is due to the origin of the skin, i.e., it is not the same to buy an article made with leather from animals specially bred for it, as is the case of cowhide, than to obtain crocodile skin, an exotic animal whose habitat is wild.
