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 gold 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 been put into practice through 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 gold color is then fixed on the leather of your belt or accessory with natural pigments. A true trademark of Duret Paris, the gold color can also be applied with beeswax in order to achieve a patina. You can choose the type of buckle best suited to your gold belt from among gold, palladium or ruthenium colors. Your gold 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 gold leather belt can be engraved with your initials or those of your loved one.
Our vegetable tanned belts have the advantage of using natural ingredients. The technique of vegetable tanning from wood, bark, root, leaf or fruit, makes each leather unique: more or less colored, soft or light. The duration of a vegetable tanning can vary from 48 hours to more than 30 days. Vegetable tanned leather is also more supple and easier to work with. The vegetable tannins will oxidize over time under the effect of light, the leather will naturally patina over time for your pleasure. Environmentally friendly, vegetable tanned leather can be recycled.
