Our belts and accessories crafted in crocodile skin have won devotees right across the world – elegant people who appreciate the added value we bring through our superb craftsmanship. Duret Paris has built up a precious store of know-how over the years, and we are experts in handling this hard and durable skin. To make your crocodile belt, we use the skin from the belly of the animal up to its tail, but also from the flanks, because these are the thinner, more supple cuts of skin. Most saddlery products and leather goods made with crocodile leather use skins from farm-bred Nile crocodiles or saltwater crocodiles. To do justice to this noble raw material, we dye it with natural pigments that can yield colors ranging from hot pink to the deepest black.
Your satin honey crocodile belt is made with the respect of the artisanal know-how of Duret Paris. For more than 25 years, our values of exigency, finesse and perfection have resulted in the creation of unique and authentic pieces. Out of love for our art, Duret Paris pays particular attention to the respect of the industry from which its raw materials come: our calf, buffalo, colt, crocodile, ostrich, python and elephant leathers are controlled and certified. Most of them come from the largest tanneries in France, whose reputation is well known. The quality of our leathers and skins is our priority since they will constitute the essential of your future belt or accessory. The honey color is then fixed on the leather of your belt or accessory with natural pigments. A true trademark of Duret Paris, the honey color can also be applied with beeswax in order to achieve a patina. You can choose the type of buckle best suited to your honey belt among gold, palladium or ruthenium colors. Your honey 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 honey leather belt can be engraved with your initials or those of your loved one.
Our satin finish belts are suitable for your daily, evening or cocktail outfits but also for your most fashionable outfits. Calfskin, lambskin, crocodile, python, buffalo: all types of leather can benefit from a satin finish when making your luxury belt. The satin finish is the last step in a long tanning process. Duret Paris relies on the best French tanneries for this purpose. This process lasts an average of four weeks. Several craftsmen intervene to transform the skins into leather with specific characteristics: suppleness, firmness, color, smell, touch... The satin finish can be applied to grained and smooth leather. To achieve the satin finish, the leather is introduced between two heated presses.
