Why you should be wearing driving gloves?
Driving gloves are the ideal companions for those who love to control the car safely.
The reduced thickness of the fine leathers allows you to have a greater grip on the steering wheel and gearbox and therefore greater control of the vehicle, freedom of movement, comfort, and especially for longer trips.
Driving gloves are a beautiful product as they are intended for true connoisseurs who love small details and luxury items to experience driving as a pleasant moment, a rewarding experience!
Precisely for this reason, nothing is left to chance: from the choice of fine deer or more tassels to the thin crochet workmanship on the skin, entirely hand-made work, riveting, and perforations of various sizes that keep greater ventilation.
Gloves made the history
The year of the zenith was 1900. At that time it was almost impossible to go around a city and see people with their hands uncovered. There were gloves of all kinds and for all pockets. Like the hat, they were not accessories, but social necessities.
There was a time when the world was inundated with gloves. Evening, work, school gloves. And gloves for shooting and riding. But that’s not all: gloves for the summer and gloves for the winter. They came in different shapes, styles, fabrics, and shades. With or without embroidery. With or without padding. They were everywhere: on people’s hands, but also on theatrical posters, which in addition to announcing the plays advertised them.
The glove made it possible at first sight to guess anyone’s age, class, level of education. Education too, since a specific etiquette of good manners had already been codified: no gloves when eating or dancing. To wear them, then, there was a very complicated system of crossings and combinations, stuff that not even the Arrows of the period would have been able to explain. And what happened then? They are gone, along with all the exquisite junk of the Belle Époque, such as crinolines and operettas.
All the fault of the wars, as was to be expected: the First ran out of supplies of leather and pushed prices up, turning gloves into luxury goods. The second, however, with the rationing of the fabric forced the fashion industry to invent new styles. People discovered the thrill of having their hands uncovered and never abandoned it and the gloves remained only in costume films or on winter evenings.
