British glovemaker Dents has been granted a royal warrant for its manufacturing services.
Dents, which is based in Warminster, Wiltshire, has been making leather gloves since 1777 and today exports to around 40 countries around the world.
The company has longstanding royal connections, having created gloves for Queen Victoria and the gloves used in the coronation services for both King George VI in 1937 and Queen Elizabeth II in 1953.
A new Dents factory and head office was opened by the Princess Royal in 2011, and last year the Duchess of Cornwall visited to present long-service awards to some of its staff.
“We are enormously proud to have been awarded a royal warrant,” said chief executive Deborah Moore. “This is a real tribute to everyone who works at Dents and to the quality of our gloves.”
