Deerskin
is one of the most difficult leathers to work with, both in it’s tanning
process, and in the making of leather goods. This, and limited availability,
prevents it from being a leather that can be stamped out and sewn into products
by the millions using inexperienced labor and many common mass production
methods. When done properly however, it produces one of the strongest, softest,
most durable, and comfortable gloves you can wear.

A
properly cut deerskin glove has stretch width-wise and very little stretch
lengthwise. This means a snug fitting glove that will expand with your hand when
you make a fist or grip something, but the fingers won’t stretch or become
floppy.

The
physical structure of deerskin leather is different than other types of skins.
It’s elongated interwoven fibers give it an extremely high shear strength and
abrasion resistance. The spaces between the fibers make the leather soft and
comfortable over a wider range of temperatures than others. In other words:
cooler in the warm weather and warmer in the cold weather.

The
combination of a naturally superior leather, tanner, cut, and sewn by
experienced crafts people using age old processes, results in a product that
truly “fits like a glove”.

Unlike
man-made materials that appear flawless, any skin has surface scratches and
scars, etc., and contain subtle variations in color and texture resulting in
natural markings which add to the uniqueness of each item. These variations in
no way affect the durability or performance of the glove. Normal use will
enhance the character of this leather.
