Smooth calf is one of the finest qualities of calfskin, a full-grain leather with a smooth and firm appearance. Your Duret Paris belt in smooth calf is tanned with chrome, rather than vegetable tanned – this is what gives it its bluish-gray color along the edge. We apply a wide range of natural pigments to our smooth calf leathers after tanning. The fineness, suppleness and resistance of this material make it a top choice for use in the finest quality footwear, accessories and belts. All Duret Paris belt collections – Classic, Bold, Distinctive and Timeless – offer luxury belts in smooth calf.
Your indigo blue calfskin 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 indigo blue color is then fixed on the leather of your belt or accessory with natural pigments. A true trademark of Duret Paris, the indigo 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 indigo blue belt among gold, palladium or ruthenium colors. Your indigo 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 indigo blue leather belt can be engraved with your initials or those of your loved one.
Our vegetable-tanned calfskin belts have the benefit of using only natural ingredients. The use of wood, bark, roots, leaves or fruit in the vegetable-tanned tanning technique makes each leather unique – it produces different depths of color, weights, and softnesses. The vegetable-tanned tanning process can take anywhere between 48 hours to more than 30 days. vegetable-tanned tanned leather is also more supple and easier to work with. Over time, the vegetable-tanned tannins will oxidize due to exposure to light, so the leather naturally develops a pleasing patina with the passing of time. vegetable-tanned leather is also environmentally friendly, as it can be recycled.
