Cocco-Ligator Skin Makes Italian Luxury Handbags Affordable


 Cocco-Ligator Skin Makes Italian Luxury Handbags Affordable

We've all heard about the Italian luxury handbag phenomenon, but for most of us it's just a fantasy. Italian handbags are rare, expensive, and hard to find. But now there is an easier way - thanks to the Cocco-Ligator skin!

This new product will make your own homemade handbag out of fur skins available in 3 different sizes. Whether you're a seasoned fashionista or a first-time crafter, this post has something for you! We'll take you through each step from picking out skins and preparing them to using decorative embelishments like ribbons and bows to finishing with the final stitches.

So here's what you will need:

A pair of scissors and a sharp knife (new blades are preferred) A ruler, a bowl, and some water Leather gloves (optional) Fur skins in different sizes A measuring tape Embellishments (ribbons, buttons, bows etc.) Needle and thread Scrap material for the lining Fabric glue or all-purpose adhesive thread Gunning wax

STEP 1. Choosing the right fur skins. The first step in making your own luxury handbag is to pick out the right skins. Italian handbags are made with sheepskin or lambskin that require special care before being used in final products. But for our purposes, we'll be using coco-fibre skins that are sold by the kilogram at most luxury fashion stores.

Coco-fibre is a very special material. It has a soft and silky surface, but it will not easily stretch or fray. When you use this material in handmade items, you need to avoid sharp and hard objects because it's very difficult to sew through. This means that the animal used for fur must be a gentle one that will not inflict damage on the finished product.

You can buy coco-fibre in most Italian specialty stores or online at CocoCoria . Note that coco-fibre is also known as natural fur .

STEP 2. Examine the skin. When you're about to inspect the coco-fibre skin, you need to remove all the dead hairs on it. The hair that is left on it is very soft and will not fray or stretch much, but if it does, it will stick out like a sore thumb when you sew the final product. You can also see through the animal's coat by looking at its belly - if its skin has a lot of hair on its lower body that is tough and not too soft, then this product should not be used for creating handbags.

STEP 3. Decide on your own measurements. When you buy coco-fibre, it comes in different sizes depending on the weight of the animal that died and/or how old it was when it died. The smaller the size, the longer and thinner the fur is. If you want to make a small bag, then use a good size for a larger bag (such as A3 = 21 x 29 cm) or pick a medium to large sizes (for example B4 = 23 x 30 cm and above).

If you want to make an oversized or smaller bag that requires more time and effort to sew, then use bigger skins with more hair length.

Conclusion: it's really important to know the weight of the animal that died when you're using coco-fibre. If you use a very small skin and it stretches a lot, the final product will look cheaper and more like a fake product than a 100% authentic handmade handbag.

STEP 4. Remove all the hair on the skin and check for sable hair . Coco-fibre is a soft material that lacks any type of mineral inside its flesh. But what catches your eye immediately is how smooth and silky it feels. That's because sable hair (also known as wooly fur) is an oily material that repels water and completely covers your handbag, even though it looks very soft to touch.
