The origin and the type of skins selected to make Causse gloves, together with the tanning operations carried out by the best tanners, guarantee top-of-the-range gloves. Lamb, peccary and deer skins are those most often used to make gloves. Exotic skins with their unique aesthetic qualities, such as ostrich, crocodile, python or iguana, as well as mink, fox and other furs from farm-bred animals are also rigorously selected from the best specialists to ensure their quality.
Lambskin has a suppleness and finesse which make it seem like a "second skin" on the hand and make the glove exceptionally comfortable. Most often treated with glacé (1) or nubuck (2) finishes on the "grain side", it can also be finished to give a metallic or varnished appearance. A velvet finish can be obtained on the "flesh side" of the skin.
The smooth, regular appearance of lambskin makes it look very refined.
Peccary skin (3) comes from a wild pig found in the Amazon jungle. Its main characteristics are its solidity and its softness, giving it the unequalled comfort for which it is reputed among great glove enthusiasts. It can be recognised by the characteristic groups of three dots which are present over the whole surface of the grain, giving it an irregular appearance.
Deer skin (4) comes from animals living semi-wild on north American farms. Its main qualities are its solidity, suppleness and softness which give it its great comfort. Its fine, irregular grain are a sign of authenticity and give it a very sophisticated "sportswear" look.
