The Sakura story begins with the finest, thickest (1.2mm) natural full aniline Scandinavian calf hides, chosen for their natural and unique top grain. Each receiving a 2-stage drum dye process for deep, striking colour whilst maintaining softness. Each pair passes through a 6-hour production process from die press, machine stitch to hand finish by skilled craftsmen. The Sakura’s ribbed upper creates a tough, resistance free surface while the NEW double layer palm features intricately padded lines reminiscent of the human hand. Carefully placed perforations help with airflow on the move.
The palm is now double layered and delicately padded providing comfort and feel without ‘bunching’ up whilst gripping the handlebars. The all metal polished YKK zipper and handle ensures smooth operation whatever the weather. The Sakura is lined in polyester twill for a luxury feel. Sakura also adopts 78’s 3 in 1 ‘buddy tabs’ that allow the gloves to be kept together when not in use using our silicone close knit velcro that provide additional abrasion protection on the wrist.
