What types of leather do you use?Updated 2 years ago

We use 16 mm thick, full-grain leather for the upper and full glove leather lining. A custom Vegetal re-tanning process infuses natural oils and waxes in the leather fibers. Using substances such as beeswax and tree bark gives durability and rich patina that gets better with age. We partner with the most renowned tanneries in the US and Mexico to ensure that not only our leathers are sourced from boutique farms, but that they comply 100% with U.S. Environmental & Chemical requirements.
