Theodora | Pure Silk Glove with Mousquetaire

Glove Size:
Forearm Fit (inches)
Made in Sussex, England

Theodora is an elbow length glove in pure silk. This style has the traditional mousquetaire buttoned opening on the inside of the wrist to allow the hand to be removed from the glove without taking the sleeve of the glove off the arm. This glove is cut slightly shorter than the classic 'opera' length in order to flatter the upper arm. Can also be worn ruched down for a more casual look.

The silk that we use is a pure silk jersey knit that has been used for glovemaking for centuries. It has a lustrous gleam that only silk can deliver. There is no mistaking the real thing.
If you require this glove in a specific colour to match your outfit, our silk can be dyed to achieve an excellent match with the colour you are looking for. Please contact us to arrange. Additionally, if you would like to see swatches of our silk in order to get a real-world view on the colour and handle, we can also arrange that.

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.

Opera gloves

Fantastic. Service was very personal and prompt, with advice on sales tax and making sure package arrived before Xmas. Freddie was helpful, efficient and charming. One of the best sales interactions I've ever had, and my spouse tells me the quality of the gloves is excellent.
