From time immemorial human had hands and hands tended to feel cold in low temperatures. So the solution wasn’t slow in coming – elongated sleeves evolved in fingerless gloves which in their turn evolved into gloves at their finest. From bulky but extremely warm fur mittens of the Old Northern tribes to the refined though completely decorative late Middle Ages gloves made of velvet or silk and richly decorated with embroideries and jewelry. Variety of materials could be used depending on the status of the owner and weather conditions of surrounding environment:
- knitted of woolen thread
Glove makers even had their own guild in Europe starting from the 15th century so that everyone who wishes to do so could buy medieval gloves! But mainly they were sewn by the owner, as well as all the other clothing.
