What was your inspiration for this bag?
The Apaporis Cayman, an endangered and beautiful species of cayman that inhabits Colombia and my native Venezuela. After visiting a croc farm to study the possibility of using real croc skin, I was appalled by the treatment of these ancient and majestic creatures, which are not meant to live in captivity, let alone the gruesome and inhumane conditions of most farms in Latin America and Southeastern Asia.
