This glove factory was set up under the name of Federico Gely in Puerta del Sol, later moving to Espoz y Mina and then to Calle San Sebastián. In 1912, Juan Antonio Luque took over the business. Luque registered the brand name of his gloves in 1927, including a description of the company’s large selection of sports gloves, English-style gloves, and its specialization in Swedish and antelope skin gloves.
The store was inherited by Luque’s son Carlos and his wife Matilde. In the 1930s, the “Miss Spain” contest accessorised contestants’ outfits with sophisticated gloves made by Luque. In recent years Álvaro, Matilde’s nephew, has been in charge of the business. Luque makes and sells all kinds of handmade gloves, with an outstanding selection of styles, materials and colours, although they specialise in making gloves using a huge range of leathers.
