Since 1988, Duret Paris has been working with calf leather with love, finesse and excellence. Our calf leather belts are entirely handmade, with the greatest respect for leather craftsmanship. Thick, resistant and of variable size, calf leather is used for the design of numerous leather goods and ready-to-wear items. Smooth and shiny on the grain side, calf leather is ideal for the creation of your luxury belt from Duret Paris. Highly regarded for its quality and beauty, our craftsmen work calf leather with other noble materials such as natural pigments. Calf leather can also be ennobled by applying patinas to your belts. 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.
Your blue patina calfskin belt is made with the respect of Duret Paris' artisanal know-how. For more than 25 years, our values of high standards, 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 blue color is then fixed on the leather of your belt or accessory with natural pigments. A true trademark of Duret Paris, the 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 blue belt from among gold, palladium or ruthenium colors. Your 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 blue 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.
