How is a Grace Glove glove made?

The process of making a Grace Glove typically involves several steps. The below steps is what each baseball glove goes through whether it is a stock or custom glove:

  1. Cutting: The leather for the glove is cut into the appropriate shapes utilizing large die-cuts and sizes for the different parts of the glove. This includes four parts: the shell, lining, pad and web.

  2. Sewing: The different parts of the glove are sewn together using a heavy-duty sewing machine. The shell of the glove is sewn together inside out and once its completed, it is turned right side out. At this point the lining is inserted and sewn in.

  3. Welting: Welting is the process of attaching a strip of leather to the edge of the glove to reinforce it and provide added durability. All of Grace Gloves utilize dual welting (read more here) which involves using two strips of leather, one on the inside and one on the outside, to reinforce the edges of the glove and provide added durability

  4. Lacing: The glove is then laced with Indigo lacing. Indigo lacing is made from a high-quality, durable leather and is known for its strength and flexibility. We believe that indigo lacing is the best option for baseball gloves because it is strong enough to withstand the rigors of regular use, while also being flexible enough to allow the glove to maintain its shape over time.

  5. Quality check: Every baseball glove goes through quality control check before being shipped, to ensure that it meets the required standards. What this means at Grace Glove Company is that every glove, both stock and customs get checked for any and all issues before they get sent out. This includes checking the stitching, welting, piping, interior, wrist and condition of the leather. 

Note that this process can vary depending on the manufacturer, and some steps may be skipped or done differently.
