Displaying a beautiful beadwork band across the back of the hand, these black leather mittens are named for the mountain Basodino. Basodino is in the Lepontine Alps on the border between Italy and Switzerland. It is the second highest peak in the canton of Ticino.
Astis leather mittens are hand-sewn in the USA from black high-quality suede leather with hand-stitched beadwork and are lined with Polartec® 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 glove and mitten is hand-sewn and uses natural materials, each leather mitten will possess slight variation in the look of the leather and beadwork. Astis embraces these subtle differences and views them as unique gloves more akin to works of art.
