About Wing & Weft Gloves:

Wing & Weft Gloves is a continuation of Lacrasia Gloves, the final remaining glove factory in New York City.  Lacrasia Gloves was founded and run by Lacrasia Duchein and Jay Ruckel for over 40 years. In April of 2017 the business was passed to a team of theatrical costumers, Katie Sue Nicklos and Sarah Timberlake (Timberlake Studios), who recognized the value of keeping this time-honored craft alive and shared the passion to see bespoke gloves remain a part of the fashion and performance industries in the heart of New York City’s Garment District.  

The legacy of this business is tremendous - with a client list that challenges editing!  From big brands (Calvin Klein, Ralph Lauren) to young designers (Christian Cowen, Christain Siriano), from Broadway (Hello Dolly, Moulin Rouge) to debutantes, from rock stars (Lady Gaga, Prince, Michael Jackson) to movie stars (Samuel L. Jackson, Nicole Kidman), from first ladies (Jackie Kennedy, Michelle Obama) to Drag Queens (Sasha Velour, Aquaria) . . . if you loved it, we gloved it!

As the fashion industry evolves, Wing + Weft Gloves will continue to serve all of these unique communities with bespoke gloves. Wing + Weft Gloves strives to be not only the source, but an affordable and dynamic source for designers to manufacture gloves in the United States.  It is a gift to be able to continue to provide this unique service that we do not take for granted.  We glove you!
