Leathers and Care instructions
Our handpicked leathers
Hairsheep is used to produce both Loggers and Drivers. This fine grade of leather is mainly sourced in Ethiopia and Nigeria. It has great strength and natural elasticity, which helps the glove to fit properly. The sheep that provides the leather grows hair not wool, hence its name. Hairsheep leather has a fine clean surface, and is not as bulky as other leathers. Its major benefits are softness and touch, suppleness, strength, and lasting comfort.
Like hairsheep leather, deerskin has the benefit of great strength and elasticity, but has a more rugged appearance with more grain on the surface than hairsheep. It is very hard wearing and heavier in weight than hairsheep leather.
Peccary is the world’s rarest and finest gloving leather, originating from wild hogs in South America. Making gloves from Peccary requires unique skills from a master glove cutter, and only the most skilled can cut it right. All peccary gloves must be hand sewn due to the quality of the leather. Peccary leather is hard wearing and treated right they can last a lifetime.
Reindeer skin that originates from Lapland in Finland is the most exclusive leather and hard to find in gloves. Yearly around 150 000 Reindeers breed freely on the hills of Lappland, and they are primary breed because of their valuable meat. The leather is a byproduct of the food industry. The leather is very soft and thin but still strong in its structure, and therefore long lasting
Protect your gloves from unnecessary soiling, excessive sunlight, dryness and heat. In case your gloves get wet, let them dry naturally. Try not to get the gloves get completely wet. For heavy soiling, we recommend the services of a specialised leather dry cleaner. Occasionally, you may grease the leather in order to resist wear and tear even better.
