TYPES OF LEATHER
Leather gloves are a favorite with workers because of the material’s durability, lifespan, and abrasion resistance. Body Guard gloves are made from six different types of leather to ensure each worker has the protection they need for whatever the application. Read on to learn more about the types of leather we used to create our gloves and the benefits and applications of each.
TYPES OF GRAIN
There are two types of leather grain. Split grain also comes from the underside of the hide and is usually stiffer making it a more durable option. Top grain comes from the outer smooth surface of the hide and is softer, lending itself to better dexterity.
