Astis Mittens Kasparek - $200.00

Astis Mittens Kasparek - The Astis Mittens are displaying an edelweiss flower beadwork design on black leather. These leather mittens are named for Fritz Kasparek, an Austrian mountain climber. He was the first to reach the summit of Mount Eiger via its North Face, a climb that was deemed impossible. The edelweiss flower can only be found at high elevations in the Alps. The Astis leather mittens are hand-sewn in the USA from black high-quality suede leather with hand-stitched beadwork on the gauntlet and are lined with Polartec Thermal Pro High Loft insulation. Astis developed a suede leather, injected with silicon during the tanning process for further waterproofing, that is extremely durable yet retains great dexterity. The length and cut of their design allows 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. The mittens are hand-sewn and only natural materials are used, each leather mitten will possess slight variation in the look of the leather, beadwork, and fur trim. Astis embraces these subtle differences and views them as unique mittens more akin to works of art. .
