The story of Dents began in 1777, when John Dent established himself as a master glove maker in the cathedral city of Worcester, England. Over the following 240 years, Dents has gone on to develop a worldwide reputation as the quintessential British glove brand. It was Dents that made the Queen’s Coronation Glove over 60 years ago, and Dents gloves have appeared in TV series like Mr. Selfridge and Downton Abbey, as well as Batman and Bond movies, and most recently, the blockbuster Wonder Woman. Dents is the holder of a Royal Warrant from HRH the Prince of Wales, and is honoured to supply him and other members of the Royal family with gloves.
Our Heritage Gloves - Made In England
Dents craftsmen still make the world’s finest leather gloves in England. Their unique expression of the glovemaker’s craft can be seen by the care and attention to detail lavished on our most exclusive English made gloves. Each glove is individually bench cut, and made with features and materials rarely seen today.
One example is quirks, small diamond shaped pieces of leather sewn at the base of the fingers, where they are attached to the hand of the glove to improve the fit. They are found only on the most expensive handsewn gloves. Another example is hand felling, a method of invisibly stitching the cuff of the glove to its lining which helps the glove keep its shape, and adds to its comfort.
