Our domestic glove
facility has not strayed far from
We started out making gloves in our founder's garage and we now
are in a small shop, similar to the blacksmith
shops of yesteryear. With the small scale of operation
each glove that flows through the shop is under the careful direction of our head glove
designer. With the addition of the "Assembled in the USA"
American Elite Series gloves we expect to more than double the
productivity in our shop this year. Even with the added
activity each day our goal will stay the same; make just a few meticulously constructed ball gloves. We
realize we are producing a special product one that should not
be rushed or mass produced.
Our imported gloves come from
a gleaming new factory in south China. This is a large
factory that is managed by people who have been making glove for
allmost three decades. The factory is able to produce
thousands of gloves a year. We have set up a small
Glovesmith micro-cell production operation within the larger
facility. In our micro-cell we have the best and most
experienced craftspeople within the whole factory. Among other
things this ensures: gloves are cut correctly according the the
grain of the hide and sewers have years of experience before
they even try to close a glove.
Labeling Our Gloves
to source in materials from domestic suppliers. But due to
availability, economic, and quality reasons we need to import
from foreign suppliers. So our labeling of our gloves is
as follows: When the domestic value content is 90% and
above we have labeled the glove "Made in USA."
When the domestic value content is 65% and above we have labeled
the glove "Assembled in USA."
