12/16/2004--Millau, France..Gloves for sale at the Lavabre Cadet atelier. Until the 1960's the town Millau in Southern France was known as the French capital for the manufacture of luxury kid gloves, but now few glove makers remain. Mary Beyer, who runs the Lavabre Cadet atelier,  produces hand-made luxury gloves for French couture houses and for selected markets abroad and is one of the remaining glove makers in Millau. At her studio a pair of rhinestone-studded suede gloves sells for $360, a pair of nutria-trimmed black kid gloves for about $600. The gloves would sell for two to four times as much in New York or Tokyo...Photograph by Stuart Isett.©2004 Stuart Isett. All rights reserved
