Made in Sussex, England

An enduring classic of the ballroom scene, our Harriet glove is the glove for dancing until dawn. A long evening glove in cool, calm and collected Swiss cotton jersey.

Supima Cotton grown in the San Joaquin Valley, California, knitted into pure Cotton Jersey in Fehraltorf, Switzerland.

The cotton for these gloves is Ultraviolet Protection Factor 50+, the highest level of protection against the effects of the Sun's UV rays. See here for the full test report.

Additionally this cotton is enhanced with antimicrobial technology - HeiQ Viroblock NPJ03, see here for more information.
If done carefully, on a delicate wash, these gloves can be machine washed. We recommend putting them in a 'delicates' bag to protect them. Take care not to overfill your tub and bear in mind that bows and trims are delicate.

You can count on Cornelia James!

I needed a pair of gloves in a hurry for a weekend event. Ordered them on a Thursday morning, paid the expedited 2 day shipping, and when I called to confirm about their Saturday delivery, the Cornelia James representative was such a dear about making sure they got posted. And they arrived the very next day!!!

My only hesitation in purchasing a pair was because I am tall and hence, I have long fingers. I ordered these believing that the fingers would be long enough - just because the gloves are made from knit fabric. SURPRISE!!! How did they know to fit me perfectly? Cornelia James definitely knows what they are doing. The measurements they required for the order obviously told them how to adjust the pattern perfectly. I am extremely pleased with my purchase.
