More than 150 years ago Chiba was appointed by the Austrian emperor to be the supplier of gloves for the imperial family as a result of the top of the range of their products and their skills.
Manufacturing gloves has at all times been a special skill. In former times it was necessary to choose the right leather, tan it, sand it down to the correct thickness, stretch it and cut it to shape. A single mistake by the glove maker meant that the entire glove was unusable. But even today the demands regarding quality, functionality and durability are still high.
It is only imaginable to meet these high standards by thoroughly controlling and checking the production steps right from the beginning. Chiba purchases the entire raw materials, suppliers are obliged to meet top of the range standards and the patterns are designed by trained glove makers and sewn by experienced seamstresses.
Their own ISO 9001 certified production has enabled Chiba to develop into more deeply involved in the development and manufacture of gloves than any other manufacturer putting them in the position to offer the best quality, functionality, the highest imaginable protection and extreme durability of the products all of which you’ll be able to have the benefit of.
