It all began in ancient times
Did you know that gloves were very popular in ancient times? The inhabitants of Egypt put them on to not to get their hands dirty with food, while the Persians used them primarily to protect their hands from injuries caused by horse harnesses.
Gloves became even more popular in the Middle Ages. Initially, they were used mainly by representatives of the Catholic church, but over time they became an fashionable addition to both women’s and men’s clothes. France has been at the forefront for a long time in the production of this type of products. This was until the French artisans decided to share the secret of their production with the rest of Europe.
Leather gloves have been an element of clothing since the 19th century. Interestingly, in the forties and fifties of the last century, this supplement was so fashionable that every lady had to have at least five pairs of gloves for different occasions. In winter, mainly sheepskin, calf and deer gloves were worn, while in the warmer seasons products of satin, silk and lace were more popular. Accessories decorated with embroideries and pleats were also very fashionable. It should be emphasized that at that time they were dressed not only in winter, but throughout the whole year. In the winter months, they effectively protected the hands from frost, and in the summer they avoided excessive exposition to sunlight.
