  • 1834

    The breakthrough came thanks to the Frenchman Jouvin, who in 1834 invented the shaped knife and the glove press. Another significant advance was the invention of a comb hole punching machine for easier needle stitching.
  • 1870

    The comb machine was replaced by a pedal sewing machine and this meant a significant expansion of glove making in the Habsburg monarchy.
  • 1865

    In Dobříš, the official beginning of the glove trade is considered to be the year 1865, when Solomon Abeles established an independent trade in Dobříš (after he trained in glove making in Vienna and worked in France or Germany). All production took place in the home environment and was controlled by factors (similar to masters).
  • 1949

    The First World War slowed down development, but the cultural situation after 1918 meant a huge development. Before World War II, ten million pairs of leather gloves were manufactured and exported. After the wave of nationalization, it was also the turn of gloves, and in 1949 the national company Rukavičkářské závody was established. This meant numerous changes - the construction of an industrial area, the introduction of terminology, setting standards and calculations. The geometric series produced the produced models and also the demands on the design increased.

    An apprenticeship was also established at the state-owned company, which was used by thousands of apprentices during its operation, and it would be difficult for you to find a family that was not connected in any way with gloves. Unfortunately, it has been closed since 1997.

At that time, several other private manufacturing companies were established.
