STALVEY DEVELOPS EXCLUSIVE PROCESS USING GOLD PARTICLE TECHNOLOGY

All of our products are made by hand, from the hardware to the finished good, and by working with skins, each one is also one-of-a-kind with its own personality.

To create our 24kt Gold Capsule Collection, pure 24kt gold is heated to extreme temperatures in excess of 1000 degrees Celsius. When the gold transforms from a solid to a liquid state, it causes the particles to turn into a gas. The atoms of gas are then stretched via a vacuum process, creating a thin layer which is then embedded into the Porosus crocodile skin, particle by particle. When the gas cools, the particles revert back to a solid state, resulting in a uniform, lustrous, and supple skin rendered in a soft shade of gold.

This process utilizes a high enough gold content to be certified as a 24kt gold article, a process typically reserved for classifying gold jewelry. Each bag bears a stamp and comes with a letter of authenticity.
