I have a friend who makes boots.
Beautiful things, very high end.
He has been getting gator and croc from a far east supplier ,not China.
He told me Hermes' was buying from this company as well and he thinks maybe for their handbags.
So the level of quality must be very high.
The sad thing is to see the harness leather tanneries go.
