Dents' heritage gloves are steeped in luxury and skilled craftsmanship. Our limited edition, handsewn Vicuña lined Peccary leather gloves are no exception.
The rare, Vicuña wool that lines this exquisite pair of gloves adds an exceptional touch of opulence.
The Vicuña, a South American member of the camel family was held in high regard by earlier civilisations in Peru, especially, the Incas. In the 13th Century, the Incas believed that the animal possessed special powers, and they referred to it as their very own, ‘Golden Fleece.’ Members of the aristocracy would revel in the lavish attire that the "Inca’s wool" created, and because the fabric was in such high demand, the animal became endangered. Thankfully the animal survived and we can enjoy this stunning fibre, today.
The Vicuña lining used in our handsewn gloves is only available in its natural shade to ensure that the fabric remains remarkably soft, light and in its purest form. It is also complementary to the cork-coloured leather that protects it, creating the perfect combination of style and quality.
The durable and soft qualities of Peccary leather, makes it the perfect material to dress the delicate Vicuña lining. Dents is in fact, one of the very few manufacturers in the world that continues to produce goods using this unbeatable, high-quality leather.
Every pair comes with a wooden box and a certificate of authenticity.
Dents of England has handmade the world’s finest leather gloves since 1777. Today, the best traditions of this time-honoured craft are combined with contemporary design and luxury leather in stylish accessories including gloves, wallets, and belts.
