Cornelia James, the fashion insider's best kept secret
The Independent Newspaper

For over seventy years, Cornelia James has been Britain's premier glove-making company, manufacturing and supplying gloves and occasional accessories to royalty and rock royalty. From Duchesses to debutants, everyone who is in the know is wearing Cornelia James. Worn by Her Majesty the Queen, as well as the Duchess of Cambridge, Cornelia James is in demand from stylists the world over and worn by international pop-stars such as Rihanna, Madonna and Taylor Swift. The brand of choice is also requested by the top fashion stylists for supermodels such as Kate Moss and Cara Delevingne. Our gloves are also featured in the internationally successful period television drama Downton Abbey.

Cornelia James is renowned for its high level of quality British luxury craftsmanship. So much so, the brand was awarded by Her Majesty the Queen a rarely given and desirable Royal Warrant as a sign of absolute excellence in 1979 that still continues to this day.

The atelier situated in the picturesque English countryside is a treasure chest of rainbow coloured fabrics, spools of thread, feathers, diamond-encrusted lace and jewels. The brand has now expanded their beautiful product range to include luxury and glamorous fashion accessories such as faux fur and silk shrugs, cashmere scarfs and leather purses.

It is our mission to offer women across the world a universe of high quality and exclusive female accessory products. We continually develop our portfolio of products in keeping with our core values of luxury and craftsmanship. Our vision is to become the world's most recognised female accessory brands.
