Japanese buffalo is a very thick and durable leather, identifiable by its coarse, veined appearance. These characteristics make Japanese buffalo hide a first-choice material for the design of your luxury belt. It originates in Asia, and tends to have markings on the skin that can be removed or highlighted, depending on the desired esthetic. They can give your luxury Japanese buffalo hide belt a unique character. Duret Paris is especially careful to uphold an ethical supply chain, and we source our exotic Japanese buffalo leather according to the criteria set out in the Washington Convention (also known as CITES). Our virtuoso leathercrafters will bring out all the finest qualities of Japanese buffalo hide, so that your Duret Paris belt will be absolutely beautiful.
Your belt in chocolate brown patinated buffalo was crafted with the traditional saddlery and leathercrafting know-how of Duret Paris. We have been bringing our exacting quality, subtle style, and eye for perfection to our unique and authentic leather goods for over 25 years. The quality of our leathers and skins is paramount to us, since they will be the cornerstone of the belt or accessory you select. The leather of your belt or accessory will be dyed the desired color, chocolate brown, using natural pigments. A hallmark of Duret Paris, a patinated chocolate brown can also be achieved through the application of beeswax. You can pick the type of buckle that best matches your chocolate brown belt from our choice of gold, palladium or ruthenium finishes. Your chocolate brown leather belt is equally suited to daily wear or special occasions like a wedding or award ceremony. Whether you choose it from our Classic, Bold, Timeless or Top Notch collections, your chocolate brown leather belt can be monogrammed with your initials – or someone else’s, if it is to be a gift.
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.
