Grain Leather

Grain is the outer surface of leather that had the hair. Full grain has the original surface whereas corrected grain has been abraded to make it smooth and uniformed. It has soft, grainy texture and appearance. It is very high quality and strong.
The underside of the leather is thick and the thickness varies from 0.8 mm to 3 mm or more.

Split Leather

When a thick skin is split into two thinner pieces then it is called split leather. The top part has grain in one side & the bottom piece is suede on both sides. The bottom piece is referred as split. Split leather is rough & usually 1.2 mm thick.

Cow Hide

It is one of the top grades of raw materials available in the entire world. Almost 65% of leather products are made from cow leather. Cow hide is known for its strength and durability and is the most abundant leather. It maintains its integrity & takes the shape of wearer. It’s comfortable and easy to care. But cowhides are thick, so it will be pretty stiff.

Goat Skin Leather

Goatskin leather has also durability like cowhide. This leather is easy to clean as it is water resistant. It is softer and suppler because of the presence of lanolin in the leather. The goatskin gloves are very comfortable to wear, as well as flexible and have high abrasion & tensile strength.

Buffalo Leather

Buffalo leather is different from cowhides. It is tougher and stronger than cow leather and it is easy to clean. Also it has a special grain pattern. But the durability of buffalo leather is more than cow’s. Its strength and elasticity give it high resistance to ripping. It’s also flame resistant and will not easily burn or melt. Generally, buffalo is not commonly available outside India.

Sheep Skin Leather

Unlike other leather, sheepskin is tanned with the fleece. Sheepskin is characterised by its fleece on one side and leather on opposite side. Sheepskin provides soft comfort and insulation. It has good abrasion resistance and is inexpensive. (Different types are side, shoulder or belly splits).

Glove Patterns

Reversible or Ambidextrous

This pattern of glove can fit on either hand and is most often used on disposable, textile or knit gloves.

Wing Thumb

An angled thumb that provides increased flaxibility and it does not contain a seam between palm and thumb. This creates durability and prolongs the ability to wear the glove.

Straight Thumb

A design that points vertically from the wrist and is useful in those areas where gripping is important but isn’t as ergonomically comfortable as other designs.

Key Stone Thumb

Highly flexible, the keystone thumb is the most ergonomic thumb design which is stitched separately into the palm area.

Round Thumb

Gives a natural gripping stance to your hand and offers moderate protection and support for your grip. It also helps save wear and tear between your thumb and index finger.

Leather Pieced Hem Piping

A stripe of leather is cut and sewn to the bottom edge of the glove and folded in, and sewn again to give a strong and smooth leather feeling.

Fabric Hem

Colour coded fabric hem ensures proper sizing, comfort and compliance. Colours can be changed as per the requirement.

Self hem

The bottom edge of this leather or fabric is folded and stitched to give a strong and smooth leather feeling.
