Your wallet in washed black grained calfskin 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 wallet or accessory you select. The leather of your wallet or accessory is then dyed the desired color, washed black, using natural pigments. A hallmark of Duret Paris, a patinated washed black can also be achieved through the application of beeswax. You can pick the type of buckle that best matches your washed black wallet from our choice of gold, palladium or ruthenium finishes. Your washed black leather wallet is equally suited to daily wear or special occasions like a wedding or award ceremony. Whether you choose it from our Classic, Bold, Timeless or Top Notch collections, your washed black leather wallet can be monogrammed with your initials – or someone else’s, if it is to be a gift.
Duret Paris has been expertly and lovingly crafting exquisite objects in grainy calf leather since 1988. Our wallets 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 wallet 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 wallet.
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.
Leather belts with a nubuck finish are always very popular. This type of leather is refined in the tannery by finely sanding the grain. This gives the hide the velvety, napped look that nubuck is known for – not to be confused with suede, though. Your deluxe Duret Paris nubuck leather belts are entirely handmade and each is unique. They bring assured elegance to any outfit, and can be ordered in a wide range of colors, from classic shades to more unusual colors that really pop! A nubuck belt is one of the pieces that requires a little extra care to keep it in tiptop condition. This luxurious leather needs an occasional going-over with a soft-bristled brush to remove any dust, and can be waterproofed using specialist products.
