Alligator Mississippiensis Lisse (Shiny) Colvert
This skin is natively found in America’s Mississippi River, although Hermès acquires them from their farms located in Louisiana and Texas. The Lisse finish is created by a rigorous polishing process using agate stone. The scales of this alligator leather are larger than Porosus crocodile and similar to the Niloticus, although they can vary from skin to skin. They are also known to feel thicker and tougher than crocodile skins, making them more durable against scratching and scuffing. Due to alligators being smaller in size, it is more common to see this skin on smaller bags and wallets. As with crocodile leather, it should be kept away from water and wet conditions. Alligator leather is differentiated with a square symbol (□) adjacent to the “Hermes” brand heat stamping.
