The towns and cities stretching from Worcester to Bath and beyond have been since the seventeenth century, a vital provider of employment in the area for both the glove makers, and for the leather tanneries. The last hundred years saw a marked decline in artisan glove making in this area due to much production being moved abroad. However, there has been a resurgence of demand for exquisite, hand made, quality gloves due to a variety of social influences, which will be explored in this paper.
