Displaying a beaded killer whale on the gauntlet, these leather gloves are named for Vasco da Gama, a Portuguese explorer. Gama was one of the most successful explorers in the Age of Discovery and the commander of the first ships to sail directly from Europe to India.
Astis leather gloves are hand-sewn in the USA from high-quality brown suede leather with hand-stitched beadwork on the gauntlet and lined with Polartec® Thermal Pro® 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. The length and cut of their design allows for a jacket to slide fully inside without bunching while providing a close fit that protects the wrists and hands from snow in the heaviest of powder days.
As each leather glove is hand-sewn and uses natural materials, each glove will possess slight variation in the look of the leather, beadwork, and fur trim. Astis embraces these subtle differences and views them as unique gloves more akin to works of art.
