Beaded Cotton Grip Gloves

Our popular Beaded (Micro-Dot) Cotton Grip Gloves serve many functions and purposes!

Shown is our Deluxe Beaded Cotton Gloves MC-571

As I was preparing this post, it occurred to me that it is a possibility that many of you were unaware that these Beaded Cotton Grip Gloves even existed and only found by someone searching and finding our listings on an internet search due to needing a nice grip glove to remedy a solution where you need to wear cotton type gloves but need an enhanced grip.

GO GLOVES® has been making and selling cotton gloves with “micro” beads embedded on the palms and fingers for 30 years.  We refer to our dotting process as Micro-Dot. We initially started with our wrist length model (MC-550) and today we now make over 8 different cotton models and styles that are unique from one another. Each model serves to address the various functions that users need for their specific purpose and use.

The one common factor with each model is that they have exceptionally durable micro beads embedded on the palms and fingers that are almost invisible to the eye. The beaded process that we use lasts the full life of the gloves themselves which saves you money from useless grip gloves. The micro beads also offer great grip even in wet environments like restaurants (i.e., catering and servers) and they are washable and reusable for more cost savings.

The following are the various functions and uses that our clients use these gloves for (alpha): Airport Valet Gloves, Band Gloves, Banquet Gloves, Banner Carriers, Bellman Gloves, Catering Gloves, Church Gloves, Color Guard Gloves, Cotillion Gloves, Doorman Gloves, Flag Carriers, Fitness Gloves, Food Service Gloves, Funeral (Pallbearers) Gloves, Handbell Choir Gloves, Honor Guard Gloves, Hospitality Gloves, Parade Gloves, Parking Attendant Gloves, Santa Clause Gloves, Ticketing Agent Gloves, Trapeze Gloves, Uniform Gloves, Usher Gloves, Waiters and Server Gloves, and Valet Gloves.

I am sure there are a few other uses that I am not aware of and I would enjoy hearing back from anyone that uses our beaded grip gloves for a use that I have not listed. Your reply post will also help others looking for a grip glove for their particular use.

About our various models: We currently make the beaded cotton grip gloves in Wrist Length and Extra Long Length for users who need to hide their forearms such as band, honor guards, military, and Santa Clauses.

We even make a Fleece Lined Winter version which is extremely popular for honor guards, marching band members, military people, and Santa’s who need to work outdoors.

We also make each model in a Black color version. These are great when you need a glove that can get soiled quickly and you need to hide the soiled or stained look but the glove itself is still in good condition. 

Another unique model is our MC-571 Deluxe Beaded Grip Gloves that comes in White or Black colors. This model is a durable version with a Velcro Elastic Wrist Closure (for a tighter and enhanced fit) and is beaded and reinforced in the thumb crotch which is a high wear area. This adds to the durability and extends the life of the gloves. Examples are for use with Bell Choirs and gymnasts who need to wear gloves. Doormen and valets especially like these models, too.

I was going to list each of the 8 different models of the Cotton Beaded (Micro-Dot) Grip Gloves that we make and sell but to save you time reading a very lengthy post, we have a special category link which includes all 8 models in one category listing. This also makes it easier on our web site to find each model in one category rather than having to filter through all our cotton glove models which is very voluminous. We also highlight the features and benefits of each micro-beaded glove model in each of the individual listings. See the link below.

Santa Claus glove sales indicate a very different Christmas season due to Covid-19

Santa Claus glove sales are very different this Christmas season due to the Covid-19 virus since I am seeing a downturn in our Santa Claus style White Glove sales with our regular shopping mall operators. These operators traditionally order their glove supplies for their Mr. and Mrs. Santa Claus’ exhibits by September or early October and this has occurred for many years going back for over 2 decades now. Furthermore, this includes our mall and department store operators not only in North America but in other countries like Australia and so forth.

There won’t even be any Miracle of 34th Street this year since Santa won’t be visiting any Macy’s stores in 2020 ending an almost 160 year Holiday Season tradition which started in 1861.

I feel very sad for the children anticipating their visit to Santa this year to reveal their gift wishes. However, I can’t place any blame on the mall and department store operators to help eliminate additional possibilities of the virus spread. Although, it does appear that most malls may have Santa’s behind Plexiglas for picture taking. They just won’t need a fresh supply of clean white gloves. See my teaching moment comment in my conclusion.

A lot of our glove sales have weakened this year due to the virus and, as you can imagine, this includes our sales to church groups and church ushers, Bell Choirs, doormen, many major hotel chains, restaurants, and catering companies. I refer to these glove sales as our hospitality segment.

Major parades such as the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade have also been cancelled due to the virus. This also affects our Band Glove sales to marching band units and cheer units which has always been a traditional prop to our holiday seasonal glove sales.

Interesting enough, I’ve found that for many years, certain gloves sales are a barometer and indicator for many occurrences. For example, I can track cold weather patterns across the country by the mere sales of cold and winter weather gloves. We also saw an unprecedented sellout of our single use disposable gloves when the pandemic hit. We can also see at this time of year new orders for our High-Visibility gloves when daylight savings time ends.

As far as our Santa gloves, I’m not complaining since that business will come back next year. I’m simply sharing how everyone is affected by the Covid-19 virus and I’m sympathizing for the children that have to sacrifice that cherished visit with Santa Claus this year.

The up-side to this matter: The most positive aspect is that this can become a good teaching moment for our children. It can be used to emphasize the importance of wearing masks and social distancing since even Santa Claus can get the virus.

To me Trump is all about Gloves


There are many glove terms used when talking about Donald Trump. Things like how his opponents in the Presidential primaries treat him with kid gloves. Then there are comments claiming he has taken his gloves off against another. To me, it’s all about his doormen who use our gloves. As a matter of fact, we even feature the Trump Group as a Featured Customer on our Home Page. 
 
The Trump Group has been a long time customer of ours and purchases our Doormen Gloves for all of their high-end luxury hotels, properties, and apartment buildings. 
I know for a fact that they buy from us for our high quality, broad selection, and seasonal options but it would sure be nice if our White Gloves made it to the White House.
