Cornelia James gloves
Discover the most luxurious and gorgeous gloves by Cornelia James, a designer brand with over 75 years of experience in glove making. Their story starts in 1939 when Cornelia James, who studied art and design in Vienna, arrived in England and became known as the colour Queen of England, supplying a huge range of colours to couturiers and leading stores. In 1947 Cornelia James actually designed her first pair of gloves for the marriage of Princess Elizabeth, the later Queen of England herself. This was the beginning of the association with the Royal Household, marked in 1979 with the granting of a Royal Warrant. Today, the brand of Cornelia James is still manufacturer by appointment to Her Majesty the Queen, now in hands of Cornelia James's daughter Genevieve James.
It is not without reason that Cornelia James received the Royal Warrant for their glove making, since the designing is absolutely superb. On average, there are 2.5 meters of stitching in a pair of gloves and Cornelia James strives to make every stitch perfect. They maintain their high end quality with old, yet premium, manual machinery with techniques over 100 years old. Cornelia James does not do mass production or section work, their team makes a complete glove from start to finish. Now that's what we call exceptional craftsmanship. Some of the deeper pile fabrics are laser cut to a pattern which is digitally scanned, while other fabrics like the fleur-de-lis lace comes from Austria, or the trellis pattern lace from Northern Ireland.
