Raber came to Canada in 1925. In 1927 he began working in the glove
industry where he soon recognized the need for quality dress gloves.
In 1934, from a small working space in his own home, Abraham Raber
took the skills he had developed and began crafting the finest dress
gloves available. By 1941 he was a recognized expert in his field.
In 1941 he founded Raber Glove Mfg. Co. Ltd. and was joined by his
son I.S. (Sunny) Raber who in turn was joined by his son Howard in
1985. Sunny Raber is President of the company and Howard Raber is
Vice President in charge of sales.
