AUTUMN 2016 | America's Master Glovemaker | Daniel Storto designs Haute Couture and Ready to Wear gloves. A single father raising his 15 year old son on his own, they reside in Gloversville New York, the one time glove making capital of the world. He is the last remaining glove maker with the only storefront shop where you can observe him at work using tools made in Gloversville dating back to the early 1800's and passed down to him from previous glove makers. The shop is a tribute to all of the glove makers that have come before him and he is proud to be preserving an important chapter of American history.

Mendel, Timothy Everest and Paul Smith. The Anna Wintour Costume Center at the esteemed Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York and The Royal Ontario Museum in Toronto have made his work a part of their permanent collection.
