Ana recognized a strong middle class appreciation of her designs and over the years developed both original and contemporary designs that are now affordable without compromising quality integrity. Ana constantly sources the finest eco exotic skins from all over the world, such as Australia, Italy, China and Thailand.
Her hands on approach from design to production ensure individuality and quality on each line.Ana-Bella eco or farmed crocodile skins are amongst the most sought-after exotic skins in the world, because they are rare, expensive and difficult to get, moreover the natural beauty of the leather veins, and the great pliability and durability make it perfect for manufacturing products such as bags, shoes and belts.
