Exotic alligator leather belts are rare and precious products. Only ten or so tanneries in the world have the know-how required to work with alligator, crocodile and caiman leather, and we use the best professionals in France. Alligator leather can be recognized by its rounded scales on the sides, then structured in the center of the back. From breeding farms in Florida, Texas or Louisiana, alligator leather is immaculate. It does not show scars as in the wild. Duret Paris puts all its talent into transforming alligator leather into high-end belts and exceptional leather goods. From natural pigments to handmade patinas, we put decades of experience at the service of your elegance.
Your Millennium brown alligator belt with a patina finish is made with the respect of Duret Paris' artisanal know-how. For more than 25 years, our values of high standards, finesse and perfection have resulted in the creation of unique and authentic pieces. The quality of our leathers and skins is our priority since they will constitute the essential of your future belt or accessory. The brown color is then fixed on the leather of your belt or accessory with natural pigments. A true trademark of Duret Paris, the brown color can also be applied with beeswax in order to achieve a patina. You can choose the type of buckle best suited to your brown belt from among gold, palladium or ruthenium colors. Your brown leather belt can be worn on a daily basis or for events such as weddings or award shows. Whether you prefer the belts from our Classic, Unusual, Bold, or Timeless collections, your brown leather belt can be engraved with your initials or those of your loved one.
A Millennium finish gives a very smart, glossy appearance to your leather belt. It takes all the savoir-faire of France’s foremost tanneries and the saddlery expertise of Duret Paris and its skilled leatherworkers to make the most of this luxury leather. An extremely noble and highly prized material, Millenium crocodile leather gives an exquisitely rare and exotic feel to your luxury belt. When you choose a leather belt of Millennium crocodile from Duret Paris, you can customize the design of it down to the smallest detail – its color, the color of the linen stitching, the type and material of the buckle, and the finish of the leather. If you would like a patina applied to it, we will do it by hand. Your Millennium crocodile leather belt will be crafted entirely by hand by Mickaël Benarroch and his expert saddlery artisans.
Exquisite patinas have been the hallmark of Duret Paris for over 25 years. The entire patination process is carried out by hand by Mickaël Benarroch and his team of skilled leather artisans, who apply natural pigments and beeswax to achieve the desired effect. Putting a patina on leather is a way of imitating the natural ageing of the animal skin. Patinas can have a classic appearance, or be intended to create effects like old wood, or the marble look of our museum calf. All types of leather can take a patina, and we have applied patinas to belts from leathers as different as calfskin, lambskin, crocodile, python and even ostrich. So whichever of these leathers you choose, Duret Paris can add a patina that will make your belt a truly unique and luxurious accessory.
