Displaying a beautiful beadwork band across the back of the hand, these black leather mittens are named for Punta Baretti. Punta Baretti is a mountain in the Mont Blanc Massif in the Val d'Aosta, Italy. The nountains in the region above four thousand meters are notable summits for climbers, points of study for geologists and have hosted countless expeditions over the last 150 years. The summit received its namesake following the successful, summit-seeking mountaineer and geology expert, Italian climber Baretti and his team.
Astis leather mittens are hand-sewn in the USA from black high-quality suede leather with hand-stitched beadwork 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 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.
