Glove cutting is a rare skill. Today, there are fewer than a hundred practising glove cutters in the world. Only two can be found in Sweden –Anton and Niklas Magnusson, fourth-generation members of the family business.
Like so many other expressions of couture, glove making was a craft that reached its pinnacle in France. The Huguenots were particularly accomplished glove makers. During the 17th Century, many settled in England, Germany, Denmark and Sweden. Wherever they went, they took their skills with them. Even to this day, the finest gloves are made in accordance with the French traditions.
