From time to time I do like to add an unusual or fun post and this seemed appropriate before the holidays.
Yes, this is a wedding dress made from rubber gloves
. I must admit that this is a first – for me anyway – and the artist is either incredibly creative or just loves gloves like me.
Wedding dresses are renowned to be very pricey but if you knew how expensive disposal rubber gloves are these days, this dress would obviously be over the top for most buyers.
However, if anyone out there needs disposable gloves
(or any gloves for that matter) for a new outfit or artistic idea, please let me know. We have many glove types and many glove colors. For example – we have flesh colors for that nude look; purple for a fun look; and even black for those formal events. I’m sure we can make you a deal.

Finally, after years of planning, we are opening our first retail luxury glove boutique on St. Thomas – US Virgin Islands. The new duty-free shop will feature our exclusive fine fashion Italian leather gloves
under the brand called, Olga Gloves
The shop will also offer other fine fashion gloves.
Olga Gloves is a new venture but not a new experience. We are simply using our half-century of retail glove knowledge to assist shoppers and tourists who visit St. Thomas.
For you industrial glovers reading this, now is the chance to take a vacation and splurge for some nice winter gloves for your family and friends.
Stay tuned for up-dates on the shop.
As the saying goes, you’re always known for the company you keep.
Since GO Gloves
is customer driven and a one-stop shop for great gloves, this year we are proud to announce that we are now an authorized ISOTONER glove retailer. We will add each model as they hit our warehouse – just in time for holiday sales.
As you can expect, we declined to stock the TOTES/ISOTONER line of slippers and boots. After all, we are just glove experts.
I think this is a neat tool for people who need gloves of all types.
We just received our latest shipment of our popular GO Greens® Bamboo Gloves and things have certainly changed.
As many of you already know, the GO Greens Bamboo Gloves
were designed to be the best light weight general utility coated work glove on the market. And, be the only environmental friendly work glove, too boot. Mission accomplished.
What we didn’t anticipate is that our warehouse manager had to recruit our office staff to help unload 4 tons of the GO Greens last week.
So much for light weight work gloves.
Gloves have always been the ideal stocking stuffer. After all, it is Winter.
This season our glove sales have been exceptional again. Maybe it’s the weather; maybe the economy is improving but one thing is for real; Winter Gloves
are HOT! In fact, we are running out of models well before previous years.
Here’s a few links to help you find the perfect winter glove or gift. And remember, this is the last week for Standard Shipping.
Happy Holidays, The Glove Guru
We are going into our 3rd
Winter selling season with the Freehand Gloves
and they are simply genius. You well know that taking your gloves off to text while outside is pure torture – and totally unnecessary.
That’s why Freehands gloves are perfect. You can choose from several models including leather and the gloves feature finger caps on your index finger and thumb, which you can flip back when your need to access your phone.
Your can always consider convertible mittens
but the Freehands Gloves are more functional for texting while using your smart phone.
It’s that time of year at Gloves-Online
and we have been frantically shipping orders to meet the demands for parade gloves
for parade units during the Thanksgiving Holiday weekend.
We wish all of you and your family a wonderful Thanksgiving Holiday.
This week I had the pleasure to meet another Glove Guru who represents one of the best glove companies in the world. (No pun intended for those in the know)
As with any good glove business guy who wants to establish a rapport, he followed up with an e-mail (nice touch).
I found it interesting that his e-mail signature contained some very useful information.
FACT: Each hand contains: 29 major and minor bones, 29 major joints, at least 123 named ligaments, 34 muscles which move the fingers and thumb, 48 nerves and 30 named arteries. Those facts put a whole new perspective on what our products are actually protecting…
I’ve since invited him for lunch when he is in the area again and I’ll make sure he adds cut protection and heat protection issues to his agenda. He knows best, but he is also helping raising the bar with hand protection issues.
In the meantime, you can check out our Glove University. We call it GO U.
