Your second skin
Leather is a natural, living material. It is a by-product of the meat industry and one of our oldest materials for clothing. It is beautiful, supple and provides a comfortable fit. Some leathers withstand moisture well, while others are softer. The characteristics of leather are partly a result of where the animal lived. We select our leather with great care and work closely with the tanneries. Since we have been working with leather since 1936, we have a good network of quality-conscious suppliers.
Many of our gloves are made of leather without dyes. For our coloured gloves, we only use drum dyed leather. This requires a better quality raw material than when dying the surface, but means that the leather retains its natural appearance and characteristics. Depending on the intended purpose of the gloves, we choose nappa, suede or split. Elk split leather is porous and insulating and we use it to make our Loke outdoor gloves that are perfect to wear around the campfire. Nappa is more moisture resistant and is therefore used for most of our ski gloves.
