The Roeckl family has been committed to the art of luxury glove-making since 1839. Founded in Munich by Jakob Roeckl, the company began as a small store and workshop offering intricately made, hand-stitched gloves, and soon gained a reputation for skill and reliability.
By the 1870s Roeckl had opened its own tannery and dyeworks, and the small workshop grew into a factory employing around 1,000 staff. In 1873 the company became official supplier to the Bavarian royal court and its prestigious clients included Bavaria’s King Ludwig II and the Austrian Empress Elisabeth of Bavaria.
Now in the hands of Annette Roeckl, one of the sixth generation of the family and the first woman to run the business, the brand continues to grow. Committed to tradition yet looking to the future, Roeckl has expanded its offerings within the luxury accessories market while maintaining its focus on quality.
The company has retained its original methods and its gloves are made of as many as 24 individual parts, requiring over 2,000 hand stitches per pair – this is luxury you can feel to the tips of your fingers.
