Because when gloves are made in Italy, there is a huge difference. And you can immediately notice it.
Mazzoleni Gloves: luxury handmade gloves
Mazzoleni Gloves has its roots In the late 1950s when Valentino Mazzoleni opened his own glove factory. He was a young craftsman who decided to take his chance: and he succeeded. Designers and fashion companies immediately started to notice and appreciate his skills and talent, and decided to entrust him with the production of fine couture gloves. Today, the creativity of the founder is carried on by his son and grandson, who create collections of luxury handmade gloves that are known worldwide for their great refinement, quality, and elegance.
“That which can be made by hand, must not be made by machine”, Valentino Mazzoleni said. This sentence perfectly encompasses and describes Mazzoleni Gloves’ philosophy and mission. As a matter of fact, the Mazzoleni Glove Factory has proudly never even thought of lowering its quality for increased production. Because it is the artist’s touch that makes each piece unique, and there is no machine that will ever be able to replace it.
100 Heritage Gloves, 100 unique pieces
But why do we talk about ‘unique pieces’? Aren’t Heritage Gloves all the same products? Definitely not! And this is what is special and distinctive about craftsmanship. Because the gloves are made by hands, and not machines, every single piece will be different from all the others: a unique and irreplaceable creation. It all starts with the selection of the finest leathers and cashmere. The artisans develop a deep understanding of how to treat them and take extreme care in the production methods. Then, the magic starts: the unique creative process begins and it is enhanced by the craftsman’s personal touch. And this is what makes each piece a unique product and creation: a true expression of class and elegance, as well as the expression of the artists themselves.
Made in Italy
As we previously mentioned, Mazzoleni Gloves makes handmade gloves in Italy, in a factory that has belonged to the founder’s family for generations. If it’s true that elegance has no boundaries, it is also true that it has its homeland: Italy. The good taste, the culture, and the aesthetic sense distinguish Italy from all the other countries. In Italy, glove-making is an art, as well as every craftsman, is considered to be an artist. Mazzoleni Gloves mainly produce and create three types of gloves: Heritage Gloves, Leather Gloves, and Driving Gloves. In this article, we will describe in-depth Mazzoleni’s Heritage Gloves collection.
Heritage Gloves: the softest touch
The Heritage Gloves collection perfectly encompasses elegance and class. It is the perfect mix of great craftsmanship, design, and luxurious material. There are no words to describe how soft Heritage Gloves are: you simply must try them. They are skillfully handcrafted so that they best express their smooth touch. Moreover, Heritage Gloves have an incredibly homogenous grain texture. A cashmere lining extends throughout the interior of the glove, so that they keep the hands warm, even during the coldest days. Thanks to their peccary leather, Heritage Gloves are one of the most luxurious items in fashion.
The secret behind Heritage Gloves: peccary leather
We said Heritage Gloves are made with very luxurious material. But what is it? We are talking about peccary leather, the world’s rarest and most luxurious gloving leather. A peccary is a wild animal, a medium-sized pig that lives in South and Central America and in the southwestern area of North America. CITES-Regulation controls and establishes the number of peccaries that are allowed to be hunted to maintain and preserve the natural balance of our ecosystem. The legal hunt of peccaries is indeed under strict regulation.
Peccary leather is extremely soft and very difficult to sew. For this reason, peccary leather requires great craftsmanship to turn it into Heritage Gloves. For its characteristics, peccary leather can only be hand-sewn: the machine might ruin the leather. Only the best artisans have the necessary skills to craft Heritage Gloves.
Why wear Heritage Gloves?
First, thanks to the craftsmanship required to sew Heritage Gloves, they have a great design. Second, the natural characteristics of peccary leather make the gloves extremely warm, soft but also extremely flexible. They guarantee freedom of movement to the fingers and fit like a second skin. They also are very breathable: they keep your hands warm, but without becoming sweaty. And last, they are incredibly durable. Not only they will ever be destroyed or ruined, but they will become softer and softer with time.
