Scaled Luxury

Since the dawn of mankind, our histories have been intertwined with snakes. The serpent has long been a source of mysticism + mystery, a symbol of the exotic, the occult + the macabre.

The Downfall of Adam and Eve and their expulsion from the Garden of Eden,
part of the Sistine Chapel by Michelangelo

1754 political cartoon by Benjamin Franklin

It wasn't long before snakes became not only a symbol of the exotic, but also a symbol of luxury. Since then, snakeskin covered shoes, boots, purses + wallets have been coveted fashion accessories.
