ABOUT LEATHER

If you have looked at our range of leather gloves, you will have noticed that we offer several types of leather. We would like to bring you interesting information about this natural material and point out details or differences.
In addition to glove leather, there are many other types that are used for different types of finished products.
The details of the individual skins are captured in a video filmed in our Dobříš workshop.
However, when it comes to gloves, the most commonly used materials are:
English

Tanned in a family tannery in the south of Italy in sunny Naples. The gentle and long process is already being taken over and developed by 4. generations.


The skin is soft, structureless with minimal porosity.


We offer walking and driving gloves for men and ladies in lambskin.

American Deer

He ranged the wild in North America until his time came. The number of game hunted varies from year to year, which often results in long waits for supplies of material or limited colour editions.

It is a very porous leather with a distinct texture (and a thickness of 1.2 mm), but still very soft and smooth on the reverse. Due to the weak layer of fixation on the surface (not paint), it is more durable and easy to maintain.


We offer both classic and sporty models of leather gloves.

Veal

We buy veal from a Czech tannery, where we are able to deal promptly with requests for material.


The calfskin has a very dense structure of binding fibres, therefore it is still soft with a relatively small thickness (up to 1 mm) even with high resistance.


We use it on our new outdoor glove collection.

Let’s get the use of the term skin right at the outset. We know that the technical term is leather, but the term leather has become so deeply ingrained in our consciousness that we have chosen to use this “non-professional” term.
So what is skin, you ask? It is a natural material intended for processing in tanneries (raw material, raw leather). This essentially food industry waste has a number of manifestations, the frequency of which, among other things, determines the quality category in the sorting process.
These include scars, deep wrinkles, pronounced porosity, uneven texture in the area, insect bite marks, etc. The best graded pieces of leather are those with the least number of the above mentioned manifestations
Of course, each type of product requires a different type of leather and can tolerate (or even require) these natural manifestations that are not a defect of the leather.
However, you can imagine that a delicate lambskin for elegant gloves would not be entirely desirable with a few scars or insect stings. The leather is therefore carefully sorted before and after tanning in the tannery. The best skins are sorted into Category I and are, of course, the most expensive.
A number of problems can be covered by spraying paint on the surface to unify it. But then the skin loses some of its breathability, softness and suppleness because the paint dries it out. We don’t use such skins. We have decided not to skimp on inputs, so we use the highest quality and premium materials.
We believe you will appreciate it.
