In the US, Chanel only sells alligator due to farming and import costs (my SA is a beacon of knowledge haha), and I've bought a mini in alligator. Prices have gone up, then down but the alligator jumbo now in the US is $38,000.
I've only seen ostrich rarely on vintage Chanel but I prefer Hermes ostrich :biggrin: Regardless, all gorgeous!

They also do a lot of python which is much less expensive than croc. I think my python medium flap was 7k several years ago.

Hello steffy000, yeah...my SA told me about python too. But I don't know, I don't like the snake skin.......

Alligator is the most luxurious skin Chanel offers (the most expensive too unfortunately) but it's really really special. It's such high quality compared to other brands and it's beautiful so to me it's worth it :smile:

Ive seen lots of python for Chanel classic flaps. Also seen lizard and occasionally croc here in Australia.

The only exotic leather that I have considered is stingray on the Le Boys actually so I never really look at the others

ostrich was done on classics many many years ago and on some vintage single flaps too, and usually just in basic colors like black white and camel. chanel isn't known for their ostrich and hasn't produced any since right before 10 series, i *think*

Its a dream of mine to own a crocodile jumbo flap. I recently saw a shiny dark brown crocodile with ghw at a boutique and my heart just dropped. I have a friend who recently purchased a matte black crocodile with ghw jumbo and it is just so special.
