Founded in 1974 by Jacques Lewkowicz, France Croco is one of the world’s most prominent tanneries, specializing in exotic leathers of the highest quality and innovation standards.
Located in Normandy in the town of Périers, France Croco created its core business around the supply, tanning, and processing of crocodile, lizard and ostrich skins.
Over the years, it has secured the best raw leathers available worldwide in terms of quality.
The continuous almost maniacal attention paid to selecting skins and researching innovative processes have placed France Croco in the exclusive circle of the best companies in the sector.
Its unique expertise enables it to offer the widest range of finishes on the crocodile skin market. These skins are highly appreciated by the most prestigious Italian, French, and Swiss fashion and accessory designers.
Run by Dan Lewkowicz, the founder’s son, the company joined the Kering group in March 2013. The merger with the French fashion
giant aims to protect and preserve this precious expertise and to create a new considerably larger production plant with the best in class, technology, and environmental qualities.
The latter in particular is an aspect that both the Kering group and France Croco have always been very sensitive to and active both in terms of sustainable development and in terms of protection of the species.
