When you think of crocodile skin, you probably think of crocodile shoes, jackets or purses. But what about a crocodile skin poker set, or croc skin sneakers?

The crocodile skin creations in the cluster below range from crocodile shoes to umbrellas, phones and everything in between.

Implications - Both fashion consumers and luxury buyers love animal-inspired products, and crocodile, alligator and other reptilian items are among their top choices. Reptilian products, whether real or fake, appeal to the luxury-loving consumer, as they are a symbol of wealth and extravagance. Thus, as more affluent consumers embrace their decadent lifestyles even more conspicuously after the recession, crocodile and similar animal motifs will garner even more popularity and demand.
