Merola Gloves

History

Nicola Merola, founder of the eponymous company, acquired his technique in Grenoble, the heartland of glove making in the 19th century.

Italian-born Nicola started manufacturing in Naples and institutionalised his brand in Rome in 1885, with the help of his brothers Leopoldo and Giuseppe.

It’s a hit ever since: in 1920 it owned twelve stores throughout Italy. Unfortunately, the Second World War made leathers inaccessible and there were fewer clients. This forced the company to stop producing.

After the war Alberto and his children made the most of the development of Hollywood cinema to revive the manufacture. Merola became costume supplier for major productions, which allowed it to make itself known to celebrities. Today Merola is recognised throughout the world for its craftsmanship.

Made in Italy for four generations

Merola gloves are made in Naples by six different corporate associations and with very exclusive materials: Napa leather, peccary, and cashmere wool.

Products have the Merola stamp or are produced in white label. The company works under licence with private labels such as Ferrari, Bottega Veneta and Brioni.

Philosophy

Driven by excellence and the passion for craft, Merola contributes to the preservation of a traditional know-how.
