In recent years, the trend in exotic-skins has seen the likes of alligator and crocodile being used in high fashion accessories. This fall, the hottest skin, in the luxury market, is Python. A native of Southeast Asia, it is known for its variations in color and scale and its supple feel. Some designers prefer the skin of the Anaconda, native to the swamps of South America, since it has a more regular-sized, shinny scale. Either way, its hard to miss the use of snake skin in the apparel, accesories and home markets.
