Peccary is the world’s rarest and most luxurious gloving leather. Peccary leather is very soft, difficult to sew, and is hard wearing. Gloves made with it are hard to find, due to the rarity and exclusivity of the leather.
Peccary is a particular kind of wild pig that lives in South and Central America. As peccary is a protected species, which can be exported from Peru in only limited quantities, its skin has become a luxury and exotic material. Peccary leather is chrome-tanned, washable and durable. It’s characterized by the pattern of groups of 3 pores, its extreme softness and stretchiness. As it comes from a wild animal in the jungle, it’s common to find natural defects on the surface of the skin, which is also proof of its authenticity.
