MAISON causse

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 soon 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.

Worship side

The driving gloves “Bolide” were created in the 1920s with the advent of the automobile age; the 1950s saw their golden years with the new fashion for city sportswear. With or without a “bolide” between your hands, 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 on the Register of Rare Arts and Crafts, part of the French Ministry of Culture so you can be confident of their expertise in driving gloves. Whether it is driving a scooter or 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, nor 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…
