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.
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 honey calf 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 resulted in 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 honey color is then fixed on the leather of your belt or accessory with natural pigments. A true trademark of Duret Paris, the honey color can also be applied with beeswax in order to achieve a patina. You can choose the type of buckle best suited to your honey belt among gold, palladium or ruthenium colors. Your honey 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 honey leather belt can be engraved with your initials or those of your loved one.
