Choosing elephant hide as a leather for your belt makes for an uncommon look, because it has a very distinctive appearance with a dense, rich texture marked with creases. Elephant hide is rare and has a wilderness feel to it, with a bit of a vintage vibe. It is generally dyed in sober colors like shades of black, blue, khaki, or beige, using natural pigments. Your elephant hide belt will chiefly stand out for the texture of its elephant leather, and the fine craftsmanship required to work it. Duret Paris sources elephant hides that meet the criteria set out in the Washington Convention (also known as CITES), which governs international trade in endangered species of wild fauna and flora.
Your elephant denim belt is made with the respect of the artisanal know-how of the house 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 denim color is then fixed on the leather of your belt or accessory with natural pigments. A true trademark of Duret Paris, the denim color can also be applied with beeswax in order to create a patina. You can choose the type of buckle best suited to your denim belt from among gold, palladium or ruthenium colors. Your denim leather belt can be worn on a daily basis or for events such as weddings or award shows. Whether you prefer our Classic, Unusual, Bold, or Timeless collections, your denim leather belt can be engraved with your initials or those of your loved one.
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.
