Dents has designed and manufactured fine leather gloves for over 237 years. The company was established by John Dent, master glove maker, in a small wooden house in Wood Street, Worcester, England, in the year 1777. Today, as in the past, the Dent gloves are made in the traditional manner. The leather is still selected, stretched, and bench cut by hand, one pair at a time, then lined and finely stitched, just as it always has been.
The leather comes from hairsheep, an animal that grows hair instead of wool. The fine hair leaves no markings, resulting in smooth leather. Favored for its natural strength and elasticity, hairsheep leather is generally acknowledged as the best leather for gloves. Durable and supple, this is an excellent choice for lasting comfort.
