Displaying the Canadian Flag in a beadwork band across the hand, these brown leather mittens are named for Mount Waddington. Once known as Mystery Mountain, this is the highest peak in the Coast Mountains of British Columbia, Canada. Although Mount Fairweather and Mount Quincy Adams, which both straddle the US border between Alaska and British Columbia are taller, Mount Waddington is the highset peak that lies entirely within British Columbia.
Astis leather mittens are hand-sewn in the USA from high-quality brown suede leather with hand-stitched beadwork on the wrist and are lined with Polartec® Thermal Pro® High Loft insulation. Working directly with a tannery in the USA, we developed a suede leather, injected with silicon 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
