FAQ

Are your products Authentic Crocodile?
All products are made using 100% Genuine Crocodile. Please see Conservation for additional information on Colombia’s Ministry of Environment, Housing and Sustainable Development, CITES and U.S. Fish and Wildlife certifications.

How do I care for my exotic leather?
MAPA Collective uses the finest quality exotic leathers from Colombia and around the globe. The natural quality and unique textures of these skins may show differences in color and or texture due to the nature of the animal, contributing to the authenticity of the design. 
To best care for your MAPA Collective purchase, avoid:
  • * exposure to direct heat or sunlight for long periods of time
  • * extended contact with water and / or oils
  • * rough or sharp surfaces to prevent scratching leather
  • * chemicals or cleaners directly on the skin
    We suggest storing your handbag in the dust bag provided when not in use. This will prevent dust accumulation and preserve the bag.  For further care, please contact MAPA Collective or consult a leather specialist.

    Where are your products made?
    All products are handmade in Colombia using the highest quality caiman skins available and the same materials as those used by top luxury brands.

    I like a certain style and color. Do you take custom orders?
    Yes, most handbags and accessories can be made in custom colors. Please contact MAPA Collective for custom order details.

    I live in California. Why can I not order the Croc Top Collection?
    Unfortunately, due to existing state laws, products that utilize python skin are unable to be shipped to California. Please take a look at other designs to start your MAPA Collection!
