Long Black Silk Lined Hairsheep Leather Gloves With Buttons By Hestra
Elevate your every gesture with these elegant long gloves, handmade by Hestra. Superfine leather from the softest Ethiopian hairsheep is first tanned and dyed in Naples, and then table cut according to the French method dating back to the 17th century, ensuring an unparalleled fit. Each pair is deliciously lined with silk, and dotted with dainty leather buttons at the wrist. Fun fact: little triangles sewn between each finger called “quirks” ease strain on seams and improve articulation—a detail much prized in our grandmother’s time but only found in high end gloves these days. Glossy black or chestnut brown.

Brothers Claes and Svante Magnusson, along with their four sons, are third and fourth generation glove-makers. Founded in Hestra, the Swedish town from which it takes its name, the company has been crafting fine leather gloves since 1936.
