ANTORINI Leather gloves between high fashion and crafts
Unlike other global regions where the manufacturing of quality leather gloves has diminished over the years, it is an art that is still very much alive and vibrant in Naples, now known as the Capital of global luxury glove manufacturing. This skill was first perfected in the 18th Century then undertaking a meteoric rise in the 19th Century. The importance of this fashion accessory was helped significantly by the rise of the Bourbon court.
However Antorini manages to create only the finest hand cut and tailored gloves, lined with 100% silk or cashmere, utilising the very finest full grain calf skins incorporating 25 different manufacturing processes along the way.
