100% U.S.A. Made from American Ragg Wool full gloves with lightweight 2.5 ounce ethically sourced Deerskin palms. We cut our own Deerskin here in Brooklyn and attach them to the gloves using a century old Singer chain-stitch post bed machine. 

The Deerskin is ethically culled (hunting and state sanctioned culling) and tanned here in NY State by 100 year old tannery. 

All labels are lightly tacked on and can be removed easily - don't worry, we won't be offended if you take them off.

Content
85% USA Wool, 15% USA Nylon

Ragg Wool
The nylon in this traditional workwear/gardening wool blend allows for shape retention and durability. The high quality wool will wick away moisture to keep hands warm and dry. 

Washing Instructions
 Hand wash with a soft detergent such as Woolite. Deerskin can be treated with a leather cream or oil to re-hydrate 

Source
Knit in Upstate, NY and finished in Brooklyn, NY.

Size Info
 Each glove comes in 3 sizes. Unlike the fingerless, the full gloves are very size specific. Please review finger measurements to see if what size will fit you. The smalls are very narrow and short fingered, so most Men would be a medium or large.

handcrafted and curated right here in Upstate NY

All of our leather goods are handmade by The Local Branch out of our Upstate NY homestead workshop, which is just 7 miles from our brick + mortar shop in the charming Finger Lakes village of Skaneateles NY.

We started our leather working journey as transplants to Northern CA from Upstate NY in our early twenties. It was 2009, and hunting for a creative job seemed near impossible during the recession - so we started our own thing, and called it The Local Branch. With very little resources at first, we dabbled in leather working using scrap pieces of hides and a found-on-the-side-of-the-road sewing machine. The very first piece Blaine created was a leather holster, made for his phone and wallet. From there our leather working journey began.

At the same time we began printing apparel with a focus on nature, travel and American history. We stretched our own screens, painting each design by hand and lovingly printed every piece ourselves - a process which is very true to form today. We source all of our blank apparel items in the USA, which has always been our beacon for our brand.

We eventually decided to take this hobby brand into our full time venture. We renovated an Airstream trailer and turned it into our mobile workshop, touring America full time for over two years. We sold our goods at festivals, craft shows and online, as well as wholesale to many shops throughout the USA, Canada and Japan. After landing some of our goods in a few major retailers, we decided to slow down and keep the ethos and vision for the brand to small, local and handcrafted.

Still today Blaine and Mackenzie steer the ship - keeping everything small + handcrafted.
