Causse Gantier Luxury Leather Gloves : 130 years of tradition in Millau
Founded in the heart of the historical center of Millau, the most famous glove towns of France, our factory is divided into three parts : Our workshop, where all our leather gloves are made, the museum displaying the evolution of our gloves throughout history, and the factory store.
Surrounded by the mountains of Aveyron region, Causse Gantier Factory is recognizable to its large wooden walls, bricks and windows. The architect Jean-Michel Wilmotte redesigned the factory as a rebirth and a tribute to the long tradition of glove making of Millau, by adding a touch of modernity while keeping the original walls. A link between the past, the present and the future of Causse Gantier.
Since 1892, Causse Gantier factory offers a unique creative ground to the best glove makers, leather cutters, tanners designers. Each hand carries a unique and precious know-how that no machine can replace.

Step by step : How to make a leather glove
After carefully preselecting the best skins at the tannery, the softest parts will be selected again by the masters leather cutters. Lambskin, deerskin, peccary skin, there is no place for compromise : only the finest skins can be used to make the finest gloves. For the majority of our luxury leather gloves, more than 120 steps are required. Precise gestures and skills are then necessary to dampen, stretch, work and rework, then cut the leather. Once all the parts are prepared, the thickness of the skin is slighlty reduced to allow the glove to fit perfetcly on the hand.
Among the glove makers of Millau, Causse Gantier is proud of being one of the few Made in France glove makers, carrying the legacy of 130 years of glove making craftsmanship. A tradition preserved from generation to generation.
