Glove-making as a profession

A craft which dealt with making leather gallantry was glove-making. It is one of the oldest crafts which is proven by numerous findings from all Europe.
Not all medieval towns had standalone glove-makers guilds. Part of this work was taken by other crafts focused on leather accessories. In the 18th century a mass production of gloves was shaped.
Luxurious items of this kind were made of leather of animal origin: goat, sheep, calf, or deer. An outer layer had to be thin in order to fit a hand shape, especially female ones.
In the past, gloves were worn not only as a cover against cold but mostly as a decoration. They had an important role during religious and secular events and were supposed to attract others visually.

Gloves in the Middle Ages

Gloves in the past were a symbol of law and authority. Wearing garments and items made of leather was a privilege and only small group of people could afford to wear beautifully made and ornamented gloves.
Gloves played an important role during medieval customs, for example a vassal handed a glove, a cane, or a facsimile during the ceremony of pledge of allegiance to a lord or a monarch . Formerly there was a also a tradition of throwing a glove in order to challenge someone.
