In 2015 I got interested in glovemaking – and then it took me years to really get into it. This site is to provide information on glovemaking – especially on the (almost completely undocumented) work of the women doing the gloves (traditionally, men cut the leather, and women do the sewing; the male work is well documented, the female work not at all – and at great risk of getting lost, as it is only orally transmitted).
