Caring for your gloves
Our Table Cut gloves are of the highest quality. It stands to reason that the natural, exquisitely crafted materials need a little tender care from time to time.
It starts with your hand
If you measure the circumference of the palm, the hand’s other measurements should be in proportion to it. The glove size corresponds to the circumference around the palm. Always remember to measure the dominant hand. A properly fitted Table Cut glove should be a little bit difficult to put on the first few times. But after a while, it will form nicely to your hand. When trying on a new pair of gloves, bend your hand slightly upwards and make sure you get small folds at the knuckles – to ensure the size is correct.
Stretch your gloves
The glove cutter determines the elasticity of each glove – to ensure the perfect fit. However, after an extended period of use, it is normal for the glove to widen over the hand. To retain the original fit, simply stretch the glove over the edge of a table. Hold the fingertips with one hand and the cuff opening with the other. Then stretch gently with the back of the hand against the table.
Avoid rain and heat
Our gloving leather is drum-dyed to afford it a richer, more natural colour. But it does make it more sensitive to humidity and rain. If your gloves are exposed to excessive moisture, dark stains may appear – especially on brighter colours. If, by chance, your gloves get wet, you can dry them at room temperature. In the event of darker stains, use a soft cloth along with a sprinkling of talcum powder and gently rub the area. The stain will most likely fade.
Use several pairs
The finest raw materials go into our gloves. To help them maintain their original appearance, give your pair a rest from time to time (damp natural materials wears more easily than dry). A good habit to adopt would be to wear them every other day.
Tips for daily use
There is a secret to putting on a glove properly. Pull it gently over the hand by alternating between pulling the palm and the back of the hand down towards the wrist. Avoid pushing down between the fingers of the glove. When removing your gloves, pull the fingers off simultaneously. By following these simple tips, your gloves will not only last longer, but also retain their original fit.
