Lizard is a thin leather (0.4 - 0.9mm) yet is not prone to tearing, making them a fantastic option for hand-stitching applications and upholstery. Our lizard <em>varanus salvator</em> skins have been used for boots, handbags, watch straps, belts and more recently, they have become a popular skin in the European market for iPhone and smart phone cases.</p> <p>One notable factor with lizard is the variety of colors and options; Roj&eacute; features over 50 unique styles of tanned lizard hide in both solid (bleached) colors and non-bleached hides with prominent natural patterns.</p> <H3><strong>Sizing for Lizard Hides</strong></H3> <p>Lizard hides are measured at their widest point across the abdomen. Roj&eacute; standard lizard sizing allows for distinct sizes from Medium to XXL. This width measurement is the determining factor for the rarity and price. For example, an XXL Grade 1 hide is exponentially more rare and thus more valuable than a medium width hide. Here is how we rate our standard sizes for lizard:</p> <table width="300"> <tr> <td width="150px">Medium</td><td width="150px">25 - 27cm</td> </tr> <tr> <td width="150px">Large</td><td width="150px">28 - 32cm</td> </tr> <tr> <td width="150px">XL</td><td width="150px">33 - 39cm</td> </tr> <tr> <td width="150px">XXL</td><td width="150px">40cm and Up</td> </tr> </table> <br /> <p><em>*Note that all exotic skins are a commodity, and as such, all of our leathers are subject to availability.</em></p> <p><strong>Know the width you need before making a purchase.</strong> We want you to have a smooth and hassle-free experience shopping with us.
