Every year our master craftsman invents dozens of special models of leather gloves – mixing and matching leather, linings, colors and styles. Partly he does this to find something new and exciting for the next year and in part to clear out all the bits and pieces of quality Italian leather that he has in his closets. In the end we have hundreds of one of a kind models!
This year we are opening our collection to the public, so have a look and pick your favorite.
Here we highlight a

Kidskin is skin or hide that comes from goat. This type of leather, as you can probably guess, typically comes from the hides of baby goat, also known as kids. Kidskin is often used due to its well-rounded features, including its adaptability, durability, suppleness, and the fact that it is impressively light weight.
Like calfskin, kidskin is considered to be a higher quality leather and this is generally reflected in the cost of its leather products. Because kidskin tends to be a bit lighter in weight than calfskin while remaining a very strong material, it is often used for a number of leather items. This allows the leather to be quite flexibile and can be used to produce just about any type of leather clothing or accessory. However, it is most commonly used to make women’s and men’s leather gloves, boots and women’s shoes.
In fact, kidskin and leather gloves have a long history with each other, dating back to Victorian times. WiseGeek.com writes,
In the late 19th century, elbow-length opera gloves made from kidskin were an elegant alternative to shorter glove styles that only reached the wrist. These soft leather opera gloves became an important and popular component of lady’s formal wear, reaching their peak of popularity during the Edwardian era. In modern times, gloves made of kid leather are usually worn as winter outerwear rather than formal wear, but they continue to be popular with both men and women due to their warmth and soft, supple texture.
Of course, with any leather item there is special care that accompanies it to help ensure a long and lasting lifespan. Like most types of leather, kidskin should be placed and kept in moderate temperatures to avoid areas with extreme dryness or humidity. Doing this will help the leather keep its natural look and texture over time and reduce the possibility of the skind cracking. To upkeep and clean your kidskin you can dust off the leather, if necessary with a soft, dry cloth. The item can then be cleaned very cafeully with luke warm water. In addition, you can use a leather cream and conditioner. Once you have treated your leather set the item and leave to dry naturally without covering.
