Belts made of exotic alligator leather are rare and precious objects. There are only about ten tanneries in the whole world that possess the expertise required for working with alligator, crocodile or caiman skins, and we use the best leatherworkers in France. Alligator leather is recognizable by the shape of its scales, which are rounded on the flanks and more structured down the middle of the back. Our alligator leather is flawless as we source it from breeding farms in Florida, Texas and Louisiana – unlike wild alligators, these animals acquire no scars. Duret Paris draws on its consummate skill and talent to craft alligator skins into top-of-the-range belts and exquisite small leather goods. Over several decades, we have perfected the art of dyeing these skins using natural pigments and applying beautiful patinas by hand, all in the service of our clientele’s elegance.
Your belt in red glossy alligator 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, red, using natural pigments. A hallmark of Duret Paris, a patinated red can also be achieved through the application of beeswax. You can pick the type of buckle that best matches your red belt from our choice of gold, palladium or ruthenium finishes. Your red leather belt is equally suited to daily wear or special occasions like a wedding or award ceremony. Whatever style you choose, your bright red alligator belt can be monogrammed with your initials – or someone else’s, if it is to be a gift.
Duret Paris makes deluxe quality patent 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.
