Authentic deerskin gauntlets, handmade in the USA by Geier Glove Co. for El Solitario.
Geier was established in 1927, in Centralia, Washington, and is known for manufacturing some of the best gloves in the world.
Deerskin leather is an extremely soft and luxurious leather because it is very supple and highly conducive to a sleek, custom fit while remaining extremely durable.
Although the records of deerskin leather used for premium garments in Europe come as far as the 14th century, in North America it was also used by the Native Americans to make clothing and moccasins. As the North of the American continent was colonized, the practice remained popular among hunters and the rough outdoorsmen because it is extremely comfortable while retain a long lasting life.
Deerskin gauntlets in normal use require little care. Gauntlets which are normally kept dry will pick up enough natural oils from the skin to keep them supple. If they do become wet, and somewhat stiff after air-drying, they will soon soften with wear, but never dry your gauntlets over direct heat!
