We are very proud of the quality of our gloves. True product experts, we carefully oversee every step of the design and production process to ensure that the finished article meets our exacting standards. We only use the best quality skins to make the premium leather that quality gloves demand. All our 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.
