These mitts arrived for me today! I first saw Astis handmade mittens last winter in Deer Valley and was smitten. After seeing them in action on Kaylin Richardson this fall in Warren Miller’s Flow State movie, there was no putting off the inevitable.
Astis mittens are inspired by Native American handicraft, specifically the leather and beadwork of the Cree Indians. Astis is the Cree word for mitten! All mittens are hand-stitched and beaded in the USA using the finest natural and performance materials. Though it is going to take a lot to get me out of my Hestra Ski Cross gloves, I am excited to ski with the gorgeous beading and fringe!
