Construction and development of gloves
How a new glove is made? What is the latest technological development in connection with gloves? How is size defined? What is my size?
The development and construction of gloves is always done with CAD software. This is computer aided design best known mainly in the machinery and construction industries. The CAD that we use was designed and created to follow the anatomical principles of the human body and certain fundamentals of the human hand in glove design.
Using CAD software has the following advantages:
1) Quicker processing – as soon as the basic size is ready all other sizes are a matter of one click only.
2) More precise – if the computer task is well defined, the result is 100% exact, therefore it is easy to check the length of sewing lines and the net consumption of materials.
3) More reliable – the possibility of making a mistake in the creation of stencils is eliminated and the process of lengthy, laborious and repeated sharpening and adjusting of size stencils is no longer required.
4) Greater variability – there is a fast tool to prepare non standard styles, unusual requests, very small or large gloves.
Even with this advanced technology the patterns cannot compete with nature. Although we try to match all human hands with a scale from 6 to 12, it often does not work or even cannot work -one glove cannot fit perfectly all the criteria connected with the human hand.
However, if you want to measure your hand, follow these simple instructions: measure the perimeter of your hand across the knuckles at the base of your fingers (do not include your thumb) with a piece of string or an inch-tape (right-handed people their right hand and left-handed people their left hand). Your hand must be closed so that the end of your index finger can slightly touch your thumb tip. This length in centimetres is the size of your hand and you can then find out the required size of your glove using the following table.
