The smartest driving gloves in the world, the “Bolides” made by CAUSSE in glacé lambskin.
Founded in 1892, Causse is the oldest of Millau’s great glovemakers and is recognized as a living heritage company (Entreprise du Patrimoine Vivant) for the excellence of their traditional know-how.
Sublime in its wooden manufactory signed Jean Michel Wilmotte, Causse is the last remaining glovemaker to abide by the rules of art but is very turned towards the future and committed to passing on its traditional skills. Their unique expertise and quality materials have not gone unseen and today, Causse supplies the most prestigious fashion houses: Hermès, Vuitton and Chanel (owner of the manufactory and guardian of their savoir-faire).
Discover at its source from De Toujours, the exceptional know-how of this noble house, guaranteeing the highest comfort, elegance and durability.
These handcrafted gloves are made in the workshops of the Maison Causse according to traditional methods going back to 1892.
Only skins of very high quality are used and shaped by expert glove-makers.
Glacé lambskin gloves.
Only the most noble materials are selected by Maison Causse from the very best tanners. The suppleness and fine grain make the gloves exceptionally comfortable to wear. For the glove to retain the quality and delicate feel of a second skin, no protective substance is added to the dyeing process. A slight leakage of dye caused by dampness or even light perspiration, is not unusual and should not be seen as a flaw. Also, with over-exposure to the sun, the colour of the glove can fade as the dyes are sensitive to UV rays.
Maintaining the beauty of the skin requires care. It is recommended to store the gloves in a dry and well-ventilated place, away from strong sunlight, at a temperature of between 15C and 25C. Any dirt mark should be treated as quickly as possible. Fullers Earth and pure Marseille soap may be used to remove grease stains (dry away from any heat source). It is strongly recommended to have the gloves dry-cleaned by a leather cleaning specialist.
To measure the size of your hand, apply the centimeter to the top of your hand, holding it with your thumb and covering the ounces.
Go around your hand with the centimeter, taking the inside of the palm without taking the thumb.
Close the hand and take the measurement without squeezing to the maximum. Transfer the measurement to the conversion chart below to find out your glove size.
When you first try on the glove, it should fit your hand as closely as possible, so that it will be as comfortable as possible after a few hours of use.
The driving gloves “Bolide” were designed in the 1920’s with the advent of the automobile age; the 1950’s saw their golden years with the new city sportswear fashion. With or without a “bolide” (i.e. fast racing car), you will relish the remarkable suppleness of the plongé lambskin leather and thanks to perforations topside and underside, a comfortable wear.
Ever since it was founded, Causse have been manufacturing top-of-the-range sports gloves, faithful to the style and spirit of the original models which were part of the legend of near-mythical sports.
Causse is a living heritage company and is listed in the register of rare arts and crafts, established by the French Ministry of Culture, so you can be confident of their expertise in driving gloves. Whether it is driving a scooter, holding a handbag or again, jumping on a bus, the “bolide” gives its wearer a certain “je ne sais quoi”.
Neither Ryan Gosling in Drive, Francoise Sagan, driving her Jaguar along the hairpin bends of the Riviera coastline, nor Steve McQueen, the keen racing driver, would disagree… Even going back to Isadora Duncan… Wearing driving gloves in town is the ultimate statement of elegance…
