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 purple satin-finish purple 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, purple, using natural pigments. A hallmark of Duret Paris, a patinated purple can also be achieved through the application of beeswax. You can pick the type of buckle that best matches your purple belt from our choice of gold, palladium or ruthenium finishes. Your purple leather belt is equally suited to daily wear or special occasions like a wedding or award ceremony. Whatever style you choose, your purple satin-finish crocodile belt can be monogrammed with your initials – or someone else’s, if it is to be a gift.
The satin-finish belts we craft at Duret Paris are super-versatile and can be worn not just with everyday outfits or eveningwear, but also with high fashion styles. When we make your top-of-the-line belt in a leather such as calfskin, lambskin, crocodile, python, or buffalo, we can also give it a satin-finish if you like. Applying this satin-finish is the final stage in a long tanning process – and one which Duret Paris entrusts to the very best French tanneries. In all, tanning a hide takes an average of four weeks and it requires several skilled trades. Various artisans will work on the skins, to turn them into leathers with differing characteristics in terms of their suppleness, firmness, color, smell, and feel. A satin-finish can be applied to both grained and smooth leathers, in a process that involves passing the leather between two heated presses.
