SHOES FORALLIGATORS

Shoes For Alligators is a project that aims for a statement about the use of animal skin for leather goods. It acts as a respond on how young alligators are being treated in alligator farms. The initial idea was to create a new material, but due to lack of time I had to re-think the concept.
I started to focus on recreate and resemble the textures of the alligator skin.

Identity was invited to do a workshop in leather at Ecco- Leather. Some parts of the shoes exist out of real leather.
