More on the emergence of gloves

Within the 12th to 16th Centuries, Europe and the British Isles had a significant link with gloves as a fashion piece. The early gloves were in two styles namely the three-fingered and five-fingered. The three and five-fingered gloves were worn by the working-class men and not the women. The evidence of this is seen in a painting by Robert Campin called “ The Nativity”. Three-fingered gloves were in other words known as the “country man’s gloves”. In the middle ages, it was also recorded that builders such as masons wore gloves (from sheepskin)  to protect their hands from very dangerous tools they handled. It also protected them from corrosive materials. The five-fingered gloves, however, were not seen all over. In Ireland for instance during the 13th Century, gloves were seen being worn by those who could afford them. Hunters in the earlier centuries also wore heavy gloves made from leather supported by a tassel to keep it closed. They also wore it to protect them just like in current times.

Gloves and royalty

The highfliers of society have always been seen one glove or the other. Designs include tassels, bells, and other embroideries. Kings put on gloves in the past as a symbol of rank. King Henry II’s tomb sculpture showed him wearing wrist-length gloves that had embroidery on it. An ancient glove that dates 1220 in a museum in Vienna, Austria shows a glove that was made with pearls, gems, and gold. By the 16th Century, gloves had become a very highly sought after accessory. It was decked with all kinds of gems, ribbons, elaborate designs. Queen Elizabeth had a collection of many pairs of gloves with differing styles. King Henry VII is also one of those who enjoyed these decorated gloves. They added it to their everyday living to signify their class. Young women and adults also learned to add it to their clothing anytime they were going for formal events such as balls. Gloves as we see them now, have come a long way. Their usefulness has made them endure the different changes that have come with them.
