PYTHONS ARE GREAT HIDES FOR PROJECTS THAT NEED STRONG DURABLE MATERIALS. MOTORCYCLE SEATS (ESPECIALLY FOR SHOW BIKES), GARMENTS, PURSES, HANDBAGS, BOOTS, GUITAR STRAPS AND LOTS OF OTHER "HIGH END" ITEMS. THIS SKIN IS ABOUT 9 1/2" BY 125". This hide looks as if MOLTEN SILVER had been poured over it and then brushed with a brass brush to give it that soft appearence. It is much more distinctive than Silver Lame which I also carry.
