We are pleased to offer this rare, exclusive opportunity for a bespoke-quality Lavabre Cadet gloves without the visit to Paris. Each pair of gloves commissioned through this Special Project will be handcrafted from an individualized pattern based on hand tracings provided by you. These custom handmade gloves are available in the rare materials of polished kidskin, suede kidskin, or peccary and now alligator.
Lavabre Cadet is one of the few glove makers out there still making gloves out of kidskin. It is the skin from a baby goat versus most gloves which are made from Nappa leather. Kidskin is incredibly soft and supple and a luxurious material for gloves. The nerves of our kidskin gloves are sewn by hand which gives a nice subtle wave and elegance to the palm of the hand. Our kidskin gloves are available with inside machine stitching which allows for a formal sleek look or outside machine stitching. Alternatively, for an additional level of workmanship, outside hand stitching is available upon special request.
After every order is confirmed we will follow up with you and send you a hand tracing and sketching sheet that includes everything you need to take your hand tracings. Then we ask that you mail them back to us or scan and email them. Once all the special orders have been bundled together we’re gonna send all these to the Lavabre Cadet Maitre Gantier so that they can create your customized pattern based on your hand tracing.
