Soli Gerolamo S.r.l. is a family-run company based in Ranica (Bg), Italy.
In 1970, married couple Teresa and Gerolamo began to produce gloves that were exclusively Made in Italy, drawing on their experience with Trussardi, a historic company from Bergamo that produced gloves between the Fifties and Eighties.
Since 1990, Dimitri has worked alongside his parents with great professional commitment, making their consolidated experience even more dynamic.
Soli gloves are made with ancient and traditional artisanal methods, in line with the philosophy of the hand-made, a laborious creative process with great focus on detail from the very first phase of production. And every pair requires twenty or so different phases, each of which demands extensive knowledge and technical skill. In the end, this delicate and infinitely precise work is what characterises the unique quality of the product.
These stages include dampening and pulling the leather to ensure that the gloves have enough elasticity when worn; then measuring, cutting, trimming, pairing, sewing, hemming, labelling, ironing and packing. Only after all these different processes are the gloves ready for the client.
Only the very best leather is selected and used to make the gloves, thanks to Gerolamo’s great skill and unique experience. From classic Napa and suede to fine crocodile, alligator, peccary, capybara, ostrich and deer; then soft, precious mink and fox furs. Only the finest silk, cashmere and warm furs are used for the linings.
Soli Gerolamo produces gloves for the most famous Italian and international fashion houses but also has its own extensive and elegant range that is sold all over the world.
The unquestionable strength of Soli Gerolamo is the company’s ability to meet any personalisation request the client may have, whether regarding the model or material.
Lengthy experience, the great skill of the owners and the scrupulous hiring of highly qualified staff make Soli gloves unique down to the last detail and a reflection of the personality of their wearer.
