Looking for snakeskin belt interests

Looking to see if there is an interest in exotic snakeskin belts. Due to a large interest in snakeskins for this purpose, I have decided to endevour into making high quality sewn snakeskin belts from the exotics like gaboon viper, puff adder, green and black mamba, varieties of rattlers ect ect. The buckle will have a single pin and will be a resin cast of the head from the individual viper done in full open mouth detail. It will be a profile head( one side) so it will lay flat against the belt. Am currently doing a giant gaboon that will give off two belts. Pricing will not be cheap due to the cost of some of these rarely seen skins especially in the belt industry. Roush estimate will put you in the 250.00 to 350.00 range for the more exotics. All machine sewn, snaps at the buckle for quick changing of buckles, all will be done to conform to your spoecific waist measurememnts. Inquiries welcome!

Have you ever seen the $15,000 purses that don't hold more then a compact and a wallet? The same people that buy that designer stuff will buy these belts. Most pants are 20 bucks at Wal-Mart but most designer pants "worthy" of such belts are in the $500-1000 range.

WetNWild, you're going to have to do some serious branding and marketing to get that kind of dough. It can happen, but not here on taxinet. You're marketing to the chic, not the elbow-deep-in-goo.
