Astis celebrates a time-honored approach to leather artistry. Everyone is looking for warm winter gloves and mittens – Astis handcrafts each individual pair using natural materials; therefore, each pair will possess slight variation in the look of the cowhide pattern, beadwork, and fur trim. Astis embraces these subtle differences and views them as unique pieces more akin to works of art.

Astis combines today’s technology and natural materials with the tradition of handcrafted artistry. Their leather mittens and gloves provide a comfortable feel, superior warmth and breathability, waterproofing, and beautiful aesthetics. They are versatile enough to wear backcountry skiing or on a walk to dinner, on the coldest winter night or a sunny spring skiing day. Astis leather mittens and gloves are extremely durable, and we believe they will be the last pair you will ever need.

Adhering to a traditional ethos, the clean functional design with no drawstrings, buckles, or clips provides easy on/off capabilities. The length and cut of their design allow for a jacket to slide fully inside without bunching while providing a close fit that protects the wrists and hands from snow in the heaviest of powder days.

These leather mittens and gloves are hand-stitched in a factory in the USA and made from the highest-quality and hardwearing suede leather. Leather inherently provides a great protection level from the elements (cold, wind, water) as well as being a breathable material. Working directly with a tannery in the USA, Astis developed a suede leather, injected with silicon during the tanning process for further waterproofing, that is extremely durable yet retains great dexterity.

As beautiful as they look, Astis gloves are built to be worn. Astis was founded on the guiding principle of bringing you the best and most distinctive mittens for your winter adventures.
