Unlike other cities, the historic center of Naples has kept alive a craft : The making of  leather gloves. This took advantage of the presence of a strong regional industry of tanning and dyeing (called University of leather), has meant that Naples is called the "World Capital of the glove," before, to date, still holds. Known since the eighteenth  century, this production really took off beginning of the next century. The presence of the Bourbon court in the capital of Kingdom of Two Sicilies has contributed significantly to the worldwide development of this product already known for its beauty and quality. A decline, indeed, there was 60/70 years, but in recent years, since the consumers prefer to buy less, but focusing on quality products and long-lasting and fashion has rediscovered the glove as an essential accessory, you been delivered, made by hand in the glove Naples, the dignity that they should. Omega still manages to create through the gloves selection of the best skins "full bloom" dyes by Immersion (not covered/ patent) cut by hand for better fit and lined silk or cashmere gloves (100%) of superior quality. There is a great synergy between our experience and our technique, on the one hand, and the needs and feedback of our customers, on the other, they become the stimulus main to continue on this path. A couple of gloves, manufactured in traditional way is the subject of 25 tasks ranging from cutting to finishing. These steps, all done by hand categorically, are mostly made at home or in homes in the nears Countries of the Province of Naples. These processes allow hands to receive the greatest heat allowing perspiration and thus avoiding the sweating. We emphasize that our goods are considered "unique/ pièces uniques/one-off " because of the craftsmanship production and the naturalness of the material mean that they can not exist two identical items.
