A very special and rare 28cm Kelly Sellier in shiny black Niloticus Crocodile with Palladium hardware. Do not miss this collectors piece.
Niloticus crocodile skin is created by polishing the spots with agate for a "Lisse Finish" to the leather of crocodile originating from Africa. Niloticus means Nile River.
Sellier – “boxy, structured, rigid”
The Kelly Sellier has visible topstitching along the side seams and no exterior piping like the Retourne. The corners and edges are “sharper” contributing to a more boxy look. Compared the retourne, the craftsmanship of the Sellier is a little more difficult and requires more steps. The seams are topstitched together and bees wax is applied to the edges, which protects the bag from damage. Due to this method of construction, the Sellier appears larger than a retourne in the same size. Out of the two styles, the Sellier is more limited.
