    horn back

    Salve a tutti!

    Ho un problema con "horn back". Si tratta della descrizione di una pochette in pelle.
    Il testo completo è: Hornback embossed clutch with snap closure back pocket and two gold square legs. Cercando su google ho trovato che in genere si tratta di "pelle ricavata dal dorso di........alligatore, lucertola etc. Il mio problema è che in questo caso non è specificato nessun animale.

    Pochette lavorata in rilievo ..............................tasca posteriore con chiusura a pressione e due tacchetti squadrati dorati.

    Qualcuno ha dei suggerimenti?


    Grazie mille!

    Hi quequilombo - "hornback" refers to alligator skin (from the back, rather than the belly skin, which is smoother). If you do a search you will see several sites with pictures - I cannot link to commercial sites here.

    Hi joanvillafane,
    Thanks a lot! Now it is clear. Searching the internet, I had realized "hornback" referred to alligator, but I was not sure since I thought it was complulsory to specify "alligator" but, as you say, it is implied in "hornback".

    Thanks again! You have saved my life!
