If you can find antique gloves, they are often beautifully made with tiny hand stitches and might be embroidered or have rows of rouleaux buttons. Even if they are torn or damaged, these can be carefully appliquéd onto another textile to become a cushion, a wall hanging or an occasional sofa back.

Slippers and evening shoe uppers and even gauntlets can be recycled in the same way.

Glove leather – calf or kid, is beautifully soft and subtle for furnishings as well as fashion.
