These are the Opinari Rosso Acceso driving gloves, they’re made from sustainably sourced peccary leather which ensures that they’re able to last a lifetime rather than just a few years.
Peccary leather is sourced from an animal that bares a resemblance to the European wild boar, its hide is famous for its toughness and suppleness, which has made it popular with glove makers. The use of thicker leather in gloves can lead to a lack of dexterity however thin leathers can sometimes lack the required durability.
Leather from animals like kangaroo, camels, goats, and the South American Peccary offer a good balance between durability and thinness, which is why they’re commonly used in gloves.
Opinari was founded back in 2018 by Sander Everlo, an Italian with a passion for motoring. All of his gloves are made by artisans in Italy from the top quality leather. The Rosso Acceso driving gloves nero black and grigio grey Peccary leather with red stitching.
Each pair of gloves comes in its own presentation case, and there are four sizes to choose from with a handy size guide on the website to ensure you get the right size first time. Opinari offer international shipping and they have a 14 day returns policy.
