Giorgio Santamaria established in 2004 Giosa Milano “La Bottega del Coccodrillo” a very unique luxury artisanal workshop specialising crocodile leather goods production. Milan is actually renowned for the working of crocodile skin, and the Porta Ticinese district was famed as the leather goods area.


Giòsa Milano-La Bottega del Coccodrillo is an exclusive luxury brand based on the best Italian craftmanship of a family who has been specializing, for generations, in the working of crocodile skin. Giorgio Santamaria learned the secrets and techniques to produce high quality leather bags from his father, a leather goods craftman.

And the name of his “La Bottega del Coccodrillo” reflects the fact that he produces and sells all types of crocodile skin products, from the classical bags to travel items, clothing and accessories, including shoes, hats, gloves, belts and hair bands right up to more unusual, contemporary creations with an innovative and contemporary twist.

The skins used are never the same since for each item produced, often a custom made order, a different type of working technique and specific skin type is required.
