Displaying a gorgeous white, purple, and gold beadwork band across the wrist, these dark brown leather mittens are named for the spectacular three summits in Chilean Patagonia known as Torres del Paine. No accurate surveys have been published, and published elevations have been claimed to be seriously inflated, so most elevations in the Cordillera Paine mountain group are approximate.
Astis leather mittens are hand-sewn in the USA from dark brown high-quality suede leather with hand-stitched beadwork on the wrist and are lined with Polartec® High Loft insulation. Working directly with a tannery in the USA, we developed a suede leather, injected with silicone during the tanning process for further waterproofing, that is extremely durable yet retains great dexterity.
As each leather mitten is hand-sewn and uses natural materials, each leather mitten will possess slight variation in the look of the leather, beadwork, and fur trim. Astis embraces these subtle differences and views them as unique mittens more akin to works of art.
- Note that the short cuff mittens run a little smaller and narrower than the long cuff mittens
