The Glove Collection Trust owns a collection of historic and modern gloves recognised as one of the finest in the world, and includes an unsurpassed collection of 17th century gloves as well as original coronation gloves worn by English monarchs. The Trust is committed to ensuring that the collection, and information about the gloves, is widely accessible.

The historic gloves are on loan to the Fashion Museum in Bath and the contemporary gloves are currently at Dents in Warminster for cataloguing and digital photography. Once this has been completed they will be transferred to the Fashion Museum. A selection of gloves from the Glove Collection Trust are always on display in Bath and other gloves in the collection can be viewed by appointment.
