Leather is made from the tanned hides of various animals. Leather quality varies because it 

is a natural product. The most common types of leather used for work gloves are: cowhide, 

pigskin, deerskin and goatskin.

1. Cowhide

Cowhide is the most common and popular type of leather used for gloves. It creates a 

moderately priced, comfortable, durable glove with excellent abrasion resistance. It is 

warmer than pig or goatskin and more heat resistant.

2. Pigskin

Pig skin offers the greatest breathability due to the porous texture of the hide. It 

bBecomes softer with use and withstands moisture without becoming stiff and the material can 

be laundered without losing its shape or function.

3. Deerskin

Deer skin is soft, more comfortable, longer wearing and more flexible than cowhide. It is 

alsothe warmest of leathers.

4. Goatskin

Goatskin is the strongest and most durable type of leather. Its natural lanolin in the skin 

makes the glove very supple, waterproof and abrasion resistant. The material is excellent 

for tasks involving fine dexterity.
