THE BEAUTY OF EXOTIC:

OUR SKINS, ONYX AND LUXURY HARDWARE

CROCODILE

Considered the gem of all leathers,

the natural shine is emphasized

by its rare beauty and exclusiveness.

LIZARD

Lizard skin is resistant to heat and stains thanks to its pore-less nature that repels liquids. Due to its everlasting high-quality material, it is one of the most sought after exotic skins.

OSTRICH

Daniella Ortiz Design Group imports this skin from South Africa. It is well recognized not only for its exceptional beauty, but also for its distinctive texture, flexibility and softness. The moisture-rich nature of the skin makes it resistant to dryness and rigidity. For this reason, Ostrich is considered one of the most precious of the exotic leathers.

 *Special orders can be taken for DO designs in Ostrich.

STINGRAY

Stingray leather has a beautiful, unique texture. The skin is not only exquisite, it is also highly durable and supple.

PEBBLED LEATHER

Only grade A pebbled leather selected for its quality, strength, character and grain is selected for the DO line. By using the highest grade of leather, this ensures an extremely high quality product. 

ONYX

The onyx used on our handbags and accessories is hand set. Onyx is an ancient semi-precious gemstone. It has been used for ornamental carvings since antiquity. Although its most commonly recognized form is a black base with a white upper layer, Daniella Ortiz showcases onyx in many beautiful colors. 

RHODIUM PLATED STERLING SILVER

The rhodium plating we use on our sterling silver keeps the silver from tarnishing and allows our jewelry to keep its sheen. No special cleaners are required, just a clean soft white cloth.
