Making a Leather Glove

Several pairs of the gloves which are being used in the 'Daphne's Glove' project have been made by the company Dents, founded in 1777, which is possibly the oldest British glove maker still in existence today. Although the project gloves are mostly made from mixed fibres or nylon, the leather glove making shown in this film clip gives a great insight into the glove making process. Taken from the BBC programme, Flog It, from 2010, do take a look at how Dent's heritage leather gloves are still made by hand.
