Darby Scott® only uses select center cuts of exotic skins from around the globe, such as alligator, lizard, ostrich, stingray and python. We employ old world techniques to bring out the highest possible luster and to accentuate the natural markings of each skin.
Hours of intense workmanship go into each fitting and clasp. The jewelry-inspired fittings feature constellations of semi-precious stones and minerals from India, Asia, South America and Africa. Graceful carvings reveal the essence of natural woods, shell and bone.
Every bag is bench-made by skilled craftsmen individually perfecting each piece and highlighting the inherent beauty of the materials.
There are many styles in the Darby Scott® Collection that can be produced in a variety of skin types and colors. If you see a style you like, but prefer to have it in another color or skin please contact us about placing a special order.
We manufacture in the following skins:
Nile Crocodile (matte and glazed finishes)
American Alligator (matte and glazed finishes)
Most custom orders take 8-10 weeks to deliver. If skins are not readily available to meet your request we will advise the approximate date of an extended delivery before your order is confirmed. An appointment can be made to work with a representative from Darby Scott® who can assist you with custom orders.
Caring for your Darby Scott® so it will last for generations.
Our expert craftsmen take care to choose only the finest grade skins, hides and materials in the making of our unique luxury items. Occasional irregularities in the markings of the skins are often the natural characteristics of the animal and should never be considered imperfections.
All of our luxury goods, whether they are made from exotic skin, calf leather, silk or other fabric, should be protected from rain, humidity and cosmetic products as they can become discolored or permanently stained. If your bag gets wet, pat gently with a cloth and allow it to dry at room temperature away from direct sources of heat and light. Always store your bag in the flannel sack provided and keep it in a cool dry place. Never apply over the counter cleaning creams or polishing products of any kind.
Darby Scott® manufactures all exotic skin bags in compliance with the Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species of Wild Fauna and Flora (CITES).
To ensure that your Darby Scott® exotic skin handbag remains in excellent condition for years to come, please keep it protected from rain and excessive humidity, heat or dryness.
The skin will buckle and stain dramatically if exposed to water. If your bag does get wet, pat it gently with a soft cloth and allow to air-dry naturally away from any source of heat. Never wipe your bag dry or use cleaning products of any kind.
Just as acidity in beauty products and lotions will destroy the luster of real pearls, so too will they damage your exotic skin accessory.
Make sure to keep your handbag out of direct sunlight, as the skin color may fade or yellow.
In order to preserve the natural characteristics and retain the softness, our leather pieces are not waterproofed. Protect your leather bag from rain and excessive humidity, heat or dryness. If it becomes wet, pat dry immediately with a cloth and let air-dry away from any direct source of heat.
To retain the luxurious look and feel of your silk handbag, avoid exposing it to water and oils of any kind, as they will stain the fabric. If it becomes wet, pat dry immediately with a cloth and let air-dry away from any direct source of heat.
Make sure to keep your handbag out of direct sunlight, as the color may fade.
