The smell of disease is rancid in the streets, but you are the Plague Doctor. All you smell are the fresh lemon balm and rose hips in your mask, protecting you from the lethal miasma of the dying.
You wear a mask, robe, and Leather Gloves as your protection from the dangers of the world's illness, shielding you just as a knight's armour protects him from a fatal strike. To everyone else, you are a symbol of knowledge and healing...but also the harbinger of death. Looking into the blackness of your mask's eyes feels like exposing one's soul, and so even your patients harbor fear at your presence.
These bestselling Epic Armoury Leather Gloves are thick, handsome leather gloves with 15 cm long cuffs. They are made from plated, chrome-tanned leather and stitched at all joints around the fingers, wrists and edges. This stitching improves the strength of the material by preventing it from deforming with heavy use or from exposure to the environment. The fit of the gloves can be adjusted with a drawstring set through four brass eyelets on the outside of the cuff.
The gloves are fully compatible with other Epic Armoury metal and leather items and are particularly useful paired with leather and steel gauntlets. Their low-fantasy look and moderate style can be used with a multitude of settings, allowing freedom to create your own unique costume.

Natural leather products are very durable, but require regular maintenance with leather care products to stay flexible and to increase life-time. Make sure your leather products are kept dry when stored. Let wet leather dry naturally before treating. If frequently wet and dry, increase frequency of maintenance.
Clean by removing dirt with a hard brush, then gently rub on leather soap with a clean, damp cloth until the leather appears clean. Remove soap with a separate damp cloth to wipe away any soap residue and then use a dry cloth to wipe away any remaining water from the leather.
You should always condition leather after cleaning, since the soap will have removed some of its natural oils. Treat the leather with mink oil, olive oil, or beeswax polish with a clean cloth, gently rubbing a small amount of oil or polish in circles into the leather. Allow the leather to soak in the oil before wiping the leather with a final clean cloth to remove any excess residue.
