Our belts and accessories crafted in crocodile skin have won devotees right across the world – elegant people who appreciate the added value we bring through our superb craftsmanship. Duret Paris has built up a precious store of know-how over the years, and we are experts in handling this hard and durable skin. To make your crocodile belt, we use the skin from the belly of the animal up to its tail, but also from the flanks, because these are the thinner, more supple cuts of skin. Most saddlery products and leather goods made with crocodile leather use skins from farm-bred Nile crocodiles or saltwater crocodiles. To do justice to this noble raw material, we dye it with natural pigments that can yield colors ranging from hot pink to the deepest black.
Your belt in black glossy crocodile was crafted with the traditional saddlery and leathercrafting know-how of Duret Paris. We have been bringing our exacting quality, subtle style, and eye for perfection to our unique and authentic leather goods for over 25 years. The quality of our leathers and skins is paramount to us, since they will be the cornerstone of the belt or accessory you select. The leather of your belt or accessory will be dyed the desired color, black, using natural pigments. A hallmark of Duret Paris, a patinated black can also be achieved through the application of beeswax. You can pick the type of buckle that best matches your black belt from our choice of gold, palladium or ruthenium finishes. Your black leather belt is equally suited to daily wear or special occasions like a wedding or award ceremony. Whatever style you choose, your black glossy crocodile belt can be monogrammed with your initials – or someone else’s, if it is to be a gift.
Duret Paris makes deluxe quality crocodile leather belts that will enhance any outfit, from the most classic look to the latest fashions. You can have any type of leather you like in a patent finish, so once you have decided on the raw material you want for your tailor-made luxury belt by Duret Paris – such as box, box calf, ostrich, crocodile, or Japanese buffalo – we will give it that high-gloss finish. Applying the finish is the final stage of the tanning process, which can take up to four weeks. Before finishing, the leather will already have undergone drying, the wet work (which includes dehairing and fleshing of the skins), tanning, and currying. These age-old practices – carried out by experts at France’s leading tanneries – guarantee the very best leathers. Mickaël Benarroch and his team of leathercrafters select from these exquisite leathers to hand-sew your luxury belt in glossy patent leather.
