About Us



Southcombe Gloves has been supplying, designing and making gloves since 1847. Based in the picturesque Somerset village of Stoke-sub-Hamdon where we have been since our foundation, Southcombe own and operate a tannery, a glove factory, a warehouse and a head office which are all run by a team of dedicated and long-serving staff. A fifth-generation family owned and run company and the oldest family run glove company left in the UK, we are known for our product knowledge and expertise. You can be assured that Southcombe gloves will be skilfully cut to give a flexible fit and made from great quality leather with immaculate finishing. David Southcombe, the Managing Director and Caroline Southcombe, the Creative Director, can both be contacted through sales@southcombe.com.


We are justifiably proud of the quality of our gloves. True product experts, we carefully oversee every step of the design, material selection, production and finishing process to ensure that the end product meets our exacting standards. Only the best quality skins are used to make the premium leather that quality gloves demand. All Southcombe’s styles are individually cut by skilled craftsmen to ensure the very best possible fit, the pieces are then passed to the sewing department for assembly. Whether sewn by hand or machine the process can appear complex with a minimum of sixteen separate cut pieces per pair to assemble but this is all part of making the perfect pair of gloves.


By purchasing a pair of Southcombe Gloves you are helping to support British manufacturing. Our factory in Somerset employs a team of skilled leather producers, glove cutters, makers and finishers. These craftsmen and women are involved in the production of many of the glove styles presented on our website. Recognised around the world for quality, we export our gloves to over 45 countries around the world.
