Fingerless gloves, called mitts in colonial America, have five holes through which the fingers and thumb extend. Well-formed linen gloves with a drawstring closure at the wrist were found in the tomb of the Egyptian king Tutankhamen (14th century BC). Ancient Greek and Latin literature contain many allusions to gloves. Medieval European nobles, patricians and prelates wore both fabric and leather gloves, often richly jeweled and embroidered. By the 14th century, gloves were worn generally by upper-class men; but not until the 16th century did Catherine de Mdicis, queen consort of Henry II of France, set the fashion for women. Around the beginning of the 17th century, women's gloves of soft kidskin were introduced. Glove making, an ancient art, became an industry in 1834, when Xavier Jouvin of Grenoble, France, invented the cutting die that made possible a glove of precise fit. The kid glove has retained supremacy as the aristocrat of gloves, but other skins are utilized in modern glove manufacture, including capeskin, cabretta, pigskin, buckskin, reindeer skin and lambskin,; also called doeskin. There are usually eight components of a leather glove: palm and back (one piece), thumb, three fourchettes (slender pieces of leather that form the sides of the fingers) and three quirks or diamond-shaped pieces inserted at the bottom between the fingers. In cutting gloves, a single trank or rectangular piece of leather the size of the glove, may be cut by hand to a desired pattern with shears or a number of tranks may be cut simultaneously by a weighted, sharp steel die. The glove is closed by stitching up along the outside to the tip of the little finger; then the thumbs, quirks and fourchettes are set in and sewed with great care. Although some sewing is done by hand, most is by machine and closely resembles hand stitching. The completed glove is dampened, tailored on an electrically heated metal model hand and buffed. Fabric gloves of antiquity were made of woven material, but modern fabric gloves are knit. Silk was the favoured material before World War II, but the glove industry now relies on cotton and man-made fibres such as rayon and nylon. Glove-sized squares of finished fabric are arranged face-to-face so that the left and right hands are cut out together by the knife-sharp glove die, which is forced through the built-up layers of fabric. Gores, triangular pieces of fabric, are cut separately and attached between the fingers when the cutout glove is folded over and stitched together. Thumbs are also cut separately and attached. The fingers are given a tubular shape by seaming. Fabric gloves are tailored on electrically heated metal hands, as are leather gloves. Gloves of wool, man-made fibres and cotton yarns can be knit by machine with or without seams and their colours, designs, patterns and stitch variations rival those of gloves knit by hand. Seamed or wrought, gloves are first machine knit as flat selvage pieces of fabric, folded so that complementing parts fall together and then stitched. Seamless gloves also may be knit entirely on such a flat machine or the cuff and palm may be knit on a circular machine and then the stitches carefully transferred to a flat fingering machine. Protective gloves have been developed for special uses. Thin rubber gloves are used by surgeons. Heavy rubber gloves are used by electrical workers. Asbestos gloves protect against burns, as do gloves of heavy, twisted loop pile similar to terry cloth. Canton flannel gloves treated with polyvinyl provide plastic-coated work gloves that are heat resistant, impermeable to most fluids and proof against acids, alkalies, industrial oils, greases and other chemicals. Lead-impregnated gloves may be used in order to shield the hands from X rays.

Glovemaking became an industry in 1834 when the glove-cutting die was invented in France. Fabric gloves of antiquity were made of woven material, but modern fabric gloves are knitted of cotton, wool, or synthetic fibres.
