  • Cowhide:
    Cow leather is the most commonly used leather within the glove industry due to it's availability. It is warmer than pigskin and goatskin and the most heat resistant.

  • Goatskin:
    The natural Lanolin found in goat skin makes it one of the softest leathers. It is the most penetration proof of all leathers and very waterproof. This leather is highly recommended for applications requiring tactile sensitivity.

  • Pigskin:
    Pigskin has the greatest breathability due to its porous texture. Also, pigskin tends to become softer with use and is the most waterproof. When laundered, this leather will return to its natural soft texture quicker than other leathers. It is also the most economical

  • Deerskin:
    Known to be on of nature's most luxurious, softest leathers, providing all day comfort and sensitivity. It is the warmest of all leathers and also long wearing.

  • Grain
    Grain leather is the smooth outside of the hide. This type of leather provides durability, dexterity, and is the most luxurious.

  • Split
    Split leather is the rougher inside of the hide. The different types are Side, Shoulder, or Belly Split

    • Side Split - comes from the rib area of the animal. It is the most uniformed leather with less imperfection and the best for consumer appeal.

    • Shoulder Split - is more economical than side, but less durable. The additional movement of the animal in the shoulder area creates less fibers and a more visible texture difference.

    • Belly Split - Is the most economical; however, it has the least consistency of texture and appearance.
