Craftsmen for generations.
For more than 50 years, Guanti Giglio Fiorentino provides a wide selection of finest leather gloves, all handcrafted by our artisans.
The history of our company began back in the 30s, Alvaro Vanchetti started working as an assistant of an artisan, learnt the art of cutting leather, and within a few years, mastered the art of making gloves.
He started the company Guanti Giglio Fiorentino at the streets of the historic center of Florence, between Ponte Vecchio and Piazza della Signoria with plenty of hard work which brought him great satisfaction.
In 1986, Alexander Vanchetti, grandson of Alvaro, brought the company to greater heights by expanding its business in order to stay ahead of competition.
In 1990 Alvaro retired from the world of gloves and left the company in goods hands with Alexander’s brother, Roberto Vanchetto.
Till date, Guanti Giglio Fiorentino continues with great passion to provide handcrafted gloves with finest leather, representing the great history of Florence and its beauty.
The company has been able to adapt to the times and follow the continuous evolution of international markets.
The search for the best leathers and a thorough understanding of fashion trends has enabled us to strengthen relationships with the major Italian and international companies.
