Displaying a gorgeous beadwork band across the wrist, these tan leather mittens are named for the mountain Pico de Orizaba, also known as Citlaltepetl. Pico de Orizaba is a stratovolcano, the highest mountain in Mexico and the third highest in North America, after Denali if the United States and Mount Logan of Canada. It is the second most prominent volcanic peak in the world after Africa's Mount Kilimanjaro.
Astis leather mittens are hand-sewn in the USA from tan high-quality 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 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
