Caiman hides are strong, thick leathers with prominent scales and a wide variety of bold colors. Caiman hides come in both Belly or Hornback. Caiman Hornback hides have a firmer texture demonstrating the strength of their skin necessary to survive in the harsh conditions of their natural habitat. The belly hide has a soft, smooth center belly strip belly in the center with the strong back ridges along the outer rims of the material. While caiman skin is not nearly as pliable as alligator or crocodile skin for garments or upholstery, caiman leather possesses the unique appearance of crocodile skin that surpasses traditional or imprinted cowhide leather yet is still far more economical than alligator or crocodile.
