Today, China's consumption of luxury leather products is very large, ranking first in the world. Unfortunately, many consumers do not understand the meaning of luxury, thinking that the international brand price is too expensive is a luxury. In fact, the meaning of luxury is not so simple, do not think that it is an international brand, the price is expensive enough is a luxury, the quality is guaranteed. It is very responsible to say that many of the so-called luxury goods sold in the international first-class brand monopoly, their production process simply cannot meet the luxury standard, most of them are industrial technical standards. The leather used by some big names is also very general and can not reach the international first-class leather, take the king of leather crocodile leather bag, move tens of thousands of thousands of a piece, and these so-called king of leather luxury crocodile leather bag quality? No one knows, because most consumers don't know how to distinguish what constitutes a good quality alligator skin. When you look at a crocodile bag in a big brand, how to look at it is not good, ask the sales staff how the crocodile skin is like this, the sales staff is very confident to tell you that this is our style. At this time, you are also embarrassed to feel that you do not understand the goods, because the consumer does not understand, so tell you that this is a new style of crocodile skin this year. In fact, the real quality crocodile leather bag is static, it exudes luxury, high-end, shock and other visual aura. A truly luxury leather has three fixed indicators, the most difficult to achieve the first indicator is the production process. The second is the main material. The third is accessories. First of all, the main material, such as a crocodile bag, the main material is crocodile skin, so the quality of the main material must be high quality. The advantages and disadvantages of crocodile leather are exactly what consumers do not know the difference, so when they see crocodile skin bags in big brands, they take it for granted that it is made of high-quality crocodile skin. In fact, does a bag made of crocodile skin have to be a luxury item? It is no exaggeration to say that some crocodile bags do not cost as much as a good cowhide bag. First of all, we must change our previous perception of the concept, the fact is that today's crocodile skin as much as cow hair, can not be generalized, high-quality crocodile skin in the market is indeed very rare, because of rare so derived a large number of inferior crocodile skin out, why in two or three years on the street are crocodile leather, and the price is not as good as cow skin pig skin, The reason is that the techniques for making crocodile skin today are so advanced that you would be surprised. Let's first take a look at how the crocodile skin on the market today comes from and how the quality of the crocodile skin produced by the five manufacturing processes differ. If someone still tells you that crocodile skin is rare because of the slow growth of breeding and so on, it is not nonsense or lying to you. There are many farms in Thailand, Vietnam, Malaysia, Cambodia, Indonesia, New Guinea, Australia, Africa and the Americas, and the growth rate is not so-called slow growth. First of all, you should know that crocodile farming is divided into two farming methods, one is captive farming and the other is group farming. Most of the captive farms are bought or controlled by international luxury goods. Captive crocodiles are mainly used for high-value commercial use, while group farming is used for food and commercial use. The cost of commercial farming is very high and is very affected by environmental factors, while the cost of food farming is much lower, and the environmental conditions of farming are not so limited, so the difference between the two farming costs is very large. In captivity, crocodiles are mainly kept in place to ensure that the belly area is not scarred by friction. Captive crocodiles have to be divided into many sizes and different specifications to be kept in captivity, which is to obtain different sizes of crocodile skin sizes. Historically, the international high-quality crocodile skin is in short supply, and the aquaculture industry in Vietnam, Thailand, Cambodia, Malaysia, Indonesia, New Guinea and other countries, most of them are raised in a group way, but the fish pond is modified as smooth as possible to reduce the crocodile belly wear and injury as much as possible. Even such raw crocodile skin is also bought back by international luxury brands, and then selected, and those that do not meet the standard are put on the market for sale. This kind of skin is OK, although it can not reach the international first-class crocodile skin, but this quality is enough for some international two - and third-line brands, after all, high-quality A-grade crocodile skin has always been in short supply and expensive, generally second - and third-line brands can not afford. In recent years, the Chinese market has suddenly appeared a lot of crocodile skin, production in France, Italy, the United States, Australia, Thailand, Vietnam, Malaysia, Indonesia, Cambodia, China and so on a variety of styles of crocodile skin, the price difference is very wide, this is to say the current crocodile skin production process and various chemical advanced point. In the era of global economic integration and powerful Internet, business information is instantly spread to every corner of the world. In recent years, the rise of crocodile skin in the Chinese market, the huge market has made the global crocodile skin traders closely focus on China, Singapore, France, Italy, the United States, Australia and other countries have exported to China to fight for market share, the quality of crocodile skin is still good at the beginning. Later, manufacturers have looked at grade B and C (grade B and C are graded according to the number of scars and holes on the belly of the crocodile skin) on the raw skin. The selection of crocodile raw skin standards is based on the middle belly part of the crocodile front legs and hind legs, to see if there are obvious scars and holes to determine the level, and no big scars and holes are calculated as grade A. With scars or holes, see how many scars and holes to count BC. In the past, the processes and chemistry used to make crocodile skin were not as powerful as they are today, so the scars and holes on the original skin, as well as the various flaws, can be made more clearly. The crocodile skin with some small holes and bruises is the most refused by customers, so these skins are basically accumulated goods. When the farm buys the raw skin of crocodiles, it must be purchased together according to the proportion of the raw skin of the three levels of ABC, and it is not possible to buy only grade A or grade B alone, but the proportion is slightly different for each farm. The acquisition of raw crocodile skin is not very expensive, expensive is the acquisition of 100 pieces of 60 or 70 pieces are overstocked, only 30 or 40 pieces sold, so this is the former real finished crocodile skin scarce and expensive reasons. In the past, this kind of crocodile skin is a crocodile skin that has no use value, and the wear and tear on the skin and the scars and small holes are more obvious. So this kind of crocodile skin can only be processed as waste skin. But today's skin-making technology is so advanced that a skin like that is still nothing and can still be produced using a fraction of that dust. How to make it needs to know about dyeing. Our crocodile skin is imported from France or Italy, absolutely 100% pure water dyed skin, the same level as Hermes, etc., so that the home selling crocodile skin products on the Internet is hanging in the mouth. In fact, there is no so-called pure water dyeing this dyeing method, any animal skin dyeing is basically the same, dyeing methods have drum dyeing, dry dyeing, oil dyeing, trough dyeing, traditional pure manual dyeing and so on, and now the international dyeing methods are mostly drum dyeing and dry dyeing two kinds.
