Leather gloves have been in existence since leather was first used to make mittens or gloves with 5 fingers. Gloves are made of lamb leather (with and without hair), elkskin leather, deerskin, cow leather, calfskin, goatskin, pig leather or kangaroo leather. They are available as smooth leather, fur, nubuck or suede. Due to the multifarious properties of leather, gloves can be protective (work gloves, motorcycle gloves), warm (winter gloves) or worn as an accessory (ladies' gloves for the evening wear).

Production and repair of leather gloves
Most leather gloves are manufactured more cost-effectively abroad due to the high manual labour required. There are also specialist companies which still carry out this rare handicraft. One of them is Pfeiffer Leather & Fashion in Germany. They manufacture custom-made leather gloves.
In the leather workshop of Pfeiffer Leather & Fashion, leather gloves are custom-made and leather gloves are repaired.
