Your card holder in blue vegetable-tanned patinated 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 card holder or accessory you select. The leather of your card holder or accessory is then dyed the desired color, blue, using natural pigments. A hallmark of Duret Paris, a patinated blue can also be achieved through the application of beeswax. You can pick the type of buckle that best matches your blue card holder from our choice of gold, palladium or ruthenium finishes. Your blue leather card holder 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 blue leather card holder 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 card holders 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 card holder 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 card holders.
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 card holders 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 card holder a truly unique and luxurious accessory.
Our vegetable-tanned card holders 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.
