Your smartphone cover in chocolate brown patinated elephant 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 smartphone cover or accessory you select. The leather of your smartphone cover or accessory is then dyed the desired color, chocolate brown, using natural pigments. A hallmark of Duret Paris, a patinated chocolate brown can also be achieved through the application of beeswax. You can pick the type of buckle that best matches your chocolate brown smartphone cover from our choice of gold, palladium or ruthenium finishes. Your chocolate brown leather smartphone cover 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 chocolate brown leather smartphone cover can be monogrammed with your initials – or someone else’s, if it is to be a gift.
Choosing elephant hide as a leather for your smartphone covers makes for an uncommon look, because it has a very distinctive appearance with a dense, rich texture marked with creases. Elephant hide is rare and has a wilderness feel to it, with a bit of a vintage vibe. It is generally dyed in sober colors like shades of black, blue, khaki, or beige, using natural pigments. Your elephant hide smartphone covers will chiefly stand out for the texture of its elephant leather, and the fine craftsmanship required to work it. Duret Paris sources elephant hides that meet the criteria set out in the Washington Convention (also known as CITES), which governs international trade in endangered species of wild fauna and flora.
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 belts 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 belt a truly unique and luxurious accessory.
