Caiman Crocodile (Caiman Fuscus)

The caiman crocodile (caiman fuscus) is native to northern South America. Caiman skin comes from caimans that are bred in captivity and farm-raised. The caiman crocodile is bonier than the American alligator. As a result, the skin is more structured and has more character in the scales.

Pan American Leathers (PAL) offers crust and finished caiman skin in both belly and hornback. Sizes range from 15 cm wide x 1 ft long to 45 cm wide x 3 ft long. Customers can pick from our NYC showroom stock for immediate delivery or order production from our upstate NY tannery. For production, customers can select from our 40+ standard colors in a variety of finishes or provide a swatch or pantone reference for a custom order. For more involved product development and faster deliveries, we service US customers from our upstate NY tannery. For better pricing on basic high volume orders, we service our US and international customers from our tannery in Bogotá.

PAL caiman skin services the auto/moto, belt, footwear, handbag, home, watchstrap and Western industries. Please call, email or schedule an appointment for any question you might have or see our Guide to Caiman Skin for more general information.

  1. Superb hide!  star rating

    Posted by Lorna Tatum on 5th Mar 2019

    Not only was the hide exactly what we were looking for and as pictured... it arrived 3 days from ordering it!! Would highly recommend this company and their products.

  2. Fantastic  star rating

    The weight of the hide and color was perfect for the look we were going for. I make custom leather goods like handgun holsters, rifle straps, motorcycle seats, and wallets and we REALLY enjoy all the leather we buy from Pan American Leathers. Top quality and the best customer service I have personally ever had.
