Duret Paris has been expertly and lovingly crafting exquisite objects in grainy calf leather since 1988. Our belts in grainy calf are made entirely by hand, in the finest traditions of saddlery and leatherworking. Thick, strong and available in a variety of sizes, grainy calf is often used for small leather goods and fashion items. Its lovely smoothness and shine on the grain side makes calfskin an ideal material to choose for your luxury belt from Duret Paris. It is renowned for its beauty and quality, and our leather artisans respect that by using other noble materials – like natural pigments – when working with calf. Calfskin also lends itself well to having a beautiful patina applied, if you would like that for your belt.
This light blue grained calfskin belt is made with the respect of the artisanal know-how of the Duret Paris house. For more than 25 years, our values of high standards, finesse and perfection have been reflected in the creation of unique and authentic pieces. Out of love for our craft, 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 and skins are controlled and certified. The quality of our leathers and skins is our priority since they will constitute the essential of your future belt or accessory. The sky blue color is then fixed on the leather of your belt or accessory with natural pigments. A true trademark of Duret Paris, the sky blue color can also be applied with beeswax in order to achieve a patina. You can choose the type of buckle best suited to your sky blue belt from among gold, palladium or ruthenium colors. Your sky blue 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 sky blue leather belt can be engraved with your initials or those of your loved one.
There are three main families of leather: smooth, nubuck and grained. Grained leather is not naturally grained; it is the tanner who gives the desired appearance to the grain on the leather. All types of leather can be grained and the process can be done by pressure embossing, dry drumming or boarding. The grained leather of your high quality Duret Paris belts is traditionally darker on the top surface than in the creases of the grain. Maintenance is exactly the same as for any other leather, except it must also be well brushed with a polishing brush to make sure that no traces of leather cream remain in the creases.
