Welcome to the website of the Worshipful Company of Glovers of London
The Worshipful Company of Glovers of London traces its history back to medieval times but is now very much part of the modern City. During 2013/14 we celebrated the 375th anniversary of the grant of our Royal Charter by King Charles I and used the opportunity to understand more fully our history and to actively plan for the future. We maintain close links with the glove industry and seek to promote the wearing of gloves and the businesses and training connected with glove-making. We aim to make the most impact with our charitable funds as well as helping with education and training, which means we are building for the future. We support the traditions of the City of London - all of which makes us a lively and purposeful Livery Company for today.
