When investing in a new pair of leather gloves, sometimes it can be hard to choose the right leather for you. We take a closer look at the reasons we love deerskin gloves and why you should choose them as your next pair.
Deerskin leather is soft and supple yet very strong. The leather has a beautiful texture thanks to the natural grain giving it a more rugged appearance compared to smooth hairsheep leather. Deerskin leather gloves have always been a popular choice in men’s accessories as it combines a luxurious appearance with great strength, perfect for our more casual leather glove styles.
Here are our top 3 reasons why you should choose deerskin leather:

2. Deerskin Leather is Soft
Although deerskin leather is very strong it does not compromise on suppleness. This soft leather has exceptional elasticity ensuring your gloves really will ‘fit like a glove’! Looking for an even softer pair of gloves? Opt for cashmere lined deerskin gloves for a truly luxurious and cosy pair.

Caring for Deerskin Leather
To extend the life of your deerskin gloves, it is essential that you care for them properly especially if they end up in a muddy puddle or with an unwanted stain! It only seems fair that we should care for our deerskin gloves correctly, when they look after our hands so well. If you deerskin gloves get wet, just allow them to dry flat at room temperature.
