Leather work gloves

Ideal for tough tasks: leather work gloves offer optimum protection from mechanical loads and slight heat. The gloves are durable, tear-proof and robust, and have proven their worth for heavy-duty work over many years thanks to their breathability and comfort. Also suitable for handling moisture, grease and oils in some cases.

What are the pros and cons of leather gloves?


  • Good mechanical protection
  • A natural product that is highly durable
  • Good wet grip
  • Resistant to heat


  • Loose fit
  • Little dexterity

What differences are there between the different types of leather?

engelbert strauss has a large range of premium quality leather work gloves.

But not all leather is alike: be it real leather, full-grain leather, full leather, cracked leather or nappa leather – each material has its own advantages and is therefore suitable for different tasks:

Real leather work gloves

  • wear-resistant
  • durable and tear-resistant
  • good mechanical protection
  • for heavy-duty tasks

Full-grain leather / full leather gloves

Full-grain leather, also called full leather, the upper most valuable layer of the hide. The original fur side is easily recognisable thanks to its natural, smooth surface.

  • resistant to oil, grease and moisture
  • highly durable and wear-resistant
  • very strong and supple – for tasks that require dexterity

Cracked leather gloves

In cracked leather, the upper grain layer is removed in a splitting process. This middle layer of the hide stands out thanks to its rough velour texture.

  • resistant to heat and cold
  • good hand protection thanks to excellent wear-resistance

Nappa leather gloves

  • soft structure and good dexterity
  • ideal for all work that requires finesse

What are the right leather work gloves?
