Dents was established in 1777 by John Dent. Although Dents was primarily famous for the crafting of fine leather gloves, Dents has always been involved with the design and manufacture of fine accessories. The leather used by Dents for their gloves is a by-product of the food, wool and dairy industries. It is a completely renewable resource. Because it is a natural product, with its own unique variations, nuances of colour, and markings, every piece has its own individual characteristics and natural beauty.
