Although leather is the only type of animal hide that most Americans have seen furniture made from, around the world, furniture, clothing and other miscellaneous items are made from various types of animal hides. Even though many exotic animals are illegal to hunt, poachers have paid no attention to the laws and killed these animals for their hides and body parts.

It is when elephant, gorilla and rhinoceros legs are used as the base for a table, as well as their tusks used for dozens of odd decorations, that some people develop a taste for the exotic. In countries such as South Africa, ostrich skin has become popular for people with wealth

and social status to make lounge suites, ottomans and other types of furniture and accent pieces. As snakeskin becomes increasingly popular, so does the desire to have snakeskin as the furniture medium of choice by these people with a unique taste.

Furniture that is made by using snakeskin usually is very durable, due to its pliable and tough design by nature, and is waterproof for the same reasons. If you are looking for animal-friendly options, embossed vinyl can give you an equally stylish variation on the look.

Celebrities and fans alike have been embracing the animal print trend this season, and even though it is about to be Spring that does not mean that you cannot pick a daring jacket to go with your wardrobe.  There are even many ways to accessorize your jacket with similar prints without going too far.

However, wearing a loud jacket such as the one seen on Nicolas cage is the perfect start to slowly incorporating more snakeskin into male fashions.  Women tend to have less of a problem in selecting the appropriate snakeskin items for their wardrobe, however, a more daring and interesting choice would be to choose to wear a snakeskin print vinyl suit jacket.  When trimmed with black silk or similar fabric it gives this kind of jacket a more sophisticated look.  All you then have to do is to pair it with a simple black dress appropriate for the office.

Snakeskin is a fabric that should not be feared when incorporating into new environments, because if it is done properly the outcome can be a very stylish one.  Jackets of this print do not have to be of the natural animal hide print, they can be all black as well.  There are black snakes, yes, but we generally see more python styled pieces of grey and bronze.

shiny snakeskin fabricAnother interesting way to wear a snakeskin jacket is to choose one that is not only a single color, but that is patent finished, sequined, or shiny in some form.  This kind of finish to a jacket makes it pop when paired with more simplistic pieces.

Do something different and daring with your wardrobe and add a snakeskin jacket to it whether it is natural print or an even more interesting an unnatural print with sequins or bold colors.  This is one style trend that is not going away any time soon, and should last far into next season.
