Made in Sussex, England

'Luxury' is a concept greatly debased; so often a cover for overpriced 'tat', as we would say in England. But consider this. Our 'Elspeth' glove is 50 grams of pure cashmere that has been combed from the underdown of a goat grazing in the Gobi Desert, collected and transported over 6,000 miles to the shores of Loch Leven, Scotland before being dyed, spun, knitted and finally delivered to our glove makers in Sussex, England. Luxury? We think so.

Absolutely pure cashmere. Cashmere is one of the true natural luxuries of our age. Combed from the underfleece of goats grazing at altitude in Mongolia, it travels to Scotland and the shores of Loch Leven to be spun into yarn and dyed. The purity and softness of the waters of the Loch are essential to the finish and the process is so natural that the water used can be returned to the Loch. It comes to us in the green hills of Sussex to be cut, sewn and fashioned into simply perfect gloves. For softness, colour and warmth there is no other material on earth that comes close. It is a simple, almost magical fabric.

How long does it take you to make gloves?

Most of our gloves are made to order and we do our best to make them within two working days of receiving the order and then having them on their way to you. If there are likely to be any significant delays we will be sure to be in touch.

How long does shipping take?

For the UK, we post using Royal Mail Tracked 24, which is a next day service. For outside of the UK, we use FedEx International Priority which ships to every country in the world within three working days. Please see the checkout for the shipping time for your specific country.

How are the gloves presented?

All orders are delivered in our presentation box which is, like our gloves, built to last. For us, it's about the product, not the packaging, but when we designed our box we made sure it was beautiful and we chose the colour, 'light cockpit green' to symbolise a style that endures. If the gloves are a gift for somebody special, we'll be happy to include a handwritten note - just let us know in the order notes section during checkout.
