The All-Day Protective Glove Liners
not only continue to be great gloves for many types of users, they also represent my history in glove design, development, and manufacturing going back to 1989.
I originally developed these gloves as glove liners to protect healthcare workers from problems with latex gloves. That was back when these same healthcare providers had to wear gloves “by law” to protect them from blood-born pathogens due to the AIDS virus. In a nutshell, they were the first universally sized, thin-knit gloves which could be worn under disposable gloves. It isn’t rocket science today but two decades ago it was and I landed in the glove business overnight due to the unmet demand for thin knit protective gloves.
To make a long story short, these same gloves found their way into the manufacturing glove wearing sectors and eventually became the benchmark in the photographic and imaging industry to protect films, negatives, and photographs from workers handling them.
Now, I’m in the scanner cleaning business and this guy is bringing these gloves into the digital age.
I wish I thought of this but I’m still the Glove Guru.
Who knew? We do!
Yes, every year in October we see a rapid spike in our consumer glove sales. It’s no mystery either. It is all about people looking for that special glove to add the final touch to their Halloween costumes.
From a businessman’s perspective, I’m inclined to believe that our prices are so low, their almost scary. And that’s no mystery either.
Happy Halloween from the Glove Guru.
5 Million New I-Phones were sold this past weekend, so you can imagine we will be overwhelmed with glove orders for these extraordinary gloves. The cold weather is here already so don’t wait and be forced to settle for a model that is out of stock.
We were the first to introduce cell phone gloves to the world back in 2008 and we sell out our allotments every year since. Our best sellers are the Isotoner
models and they are great gifts, too.
We stock many models, many styles, including men’s and women’s models and teens. And by the way, our touch screen gloves will never be obsolete.
Many customers ask what Nappa Leather is so it’s time to strip away the myths about Nappa leathers.
Nappa leather is full-grain leather, typically dyed, and made from unsplit kidskin, lambskin or sheep skin. It is tanned with salts of chromium or aluminum sulfate, and noted for its softness, stretchiness, flexibility, and durability. It is often used in high-quality leather products such as high-end furniture, wallets, handbags, and most often high quality dress and fashion gloves.
Nappa leather should not be confused with cowhide which is thicker, less flexible, and used in heavy-duty work gloves.
Even though Italian leather craftsmen have mastered making and working with Nappa leather, the tanning process which produces Napa leather was invented in 1875 at the Sawyer Tanning Company in Napa, California.
Examples of popular Men’s and Women’s Nappa leather gloves can be found at the following links:
The new ICON Designer Art Leather Gloves arriving in October are now available for pre-order since we purchased all that the factory can produce this year. Quantities will be limited due to their popularity, limited production, and the fact that these glove models have become collector’s items. The design patterns change annually so we suggest you reserve your own personal pair today.
The ideal Christmas gift this year.
This pre-order program has been popular since 2007 for our Chinchilla Lined Gloves
. Order today and we will guarantee immediate delivery once they arrive.
Early today, Gloves-Online.com reached the astonishing milestone of One Million page views since January 1– and before our busy season.
Page views are the conservative metric when evaluating web site analytics. For example, if we counted actual hits, the number would be 7 to 10 times higher due to images, etc. You can see this in the chart.
Although we are very proud of this success, I wish to thank all the glove families that made this happen. My thanks (ranked according to their contributions) go to Mr. & Mrs. White Gloves, Leather Gloves, Winter Gloves, Fashion Gloves, Church Gloves, Bamboo Gloves, Sport Gloves, Cotillion Gloves, Usher Gloves, Coated Gloves, Cut Resistant Gloves, Grip Gloves, Fancy Gloves, Parade Gloves, Heat Resistant Gloves, Mechanics Gloves, and Electrician Gloves.
To demonstrate the significance of this number, we have not factored (added) in the customers that migrate to our industrial web site from GO to purchase their industrial and safety gloves. The GO Industrial web site is a completely different web site and we obviously don’t share those metrics since many people follow this Blog – a.k.a industrial espionage – but you can perceive those hits.
For the skeptics out there, I’ve added a web shot image of our actual metric scale which can be enlarged.
I doubt there is another glove company in the world that has reached this milestone in less than 9 months. After all, we were the very first global glove company on the Internet since 1996.
I can’t wait to see how successful the internet shop of our fine fashion glove boutique in St. Thomas, USVI, Olga Gloves, becomes.
is proud to be appointed the exclusive supplier of ICON Gloves in the US Virgin Islands.
These are Gloves that you have never seen before but already collector’s items since the art changes each season.
You can read more about the art at this link: ICON GLOVES
The new ICON Gloves are Italian Nappa leathers and the designs are intrinsic to the leather.
Olga Gloves also has a pre-order option since the new models will arrive in the shop at St. Thomas in October.
It’s worthwhile looking at the GO Greens®Gloves web site and learn why I embarked on year-long effort developing these gloves over 3 years ago. You will discover, like me, things like 100% biodegradability (compostable), 10 times stronger than cotton, natural UV resistance, low costs, eco-friendly, and so forth.
There is even an enlightening section on the web site that educates you about bamboo
and the virtues of products made from bamboo – the most sustainable plant on earth.
If I knew 20 years ago what I know today about bamboo, I would have planted bamboo plantations in the coastal plains of eastern North Carolina to replace tobacco.
I might be a lot wealthier but then I would have missed the fun bringing the GO Greens® Bamboo gloves
to the world.
I’ve been discussing gloves here for over 4 years now since 2008. That’s a lot of glove speak about gloves. The subscriber base has increased dramatically and the antiquated Google FeedBurner which delivers my posts to you just doesn’t cut it these days. Too many delays, too many problems, and no support forced me to jump to a more robust platform to deliver my glove news and posts to you.
The new feed for my posts is called FeedBlitz. It offers similar functions as before but with more management tools and more reliability.
Actually, this post is actually and “hopefully” being delivered by the FeedBlitz program. I don’t want all of you to confirm that you received this post or I will be reading e-mails for days. However, I would appreciate hearing from a few of you (friends and the other glove gurus) to confirm that your subscription was transferred properly as a quality control issue.
Once I confirm that everything is working properly again, I’ll be announcing a new glove line being featured this fall at our Olga Gloves shop in St. Thomas, USVI.
Out of curiosity, I reviewed our files and discovered that we have produced over 10 ½ tons of our bamboo gloves. That’s 21,375 US lbs. to save you time calculating. It’s not surprising if you look at our warehouse and the ocean freight shipping containers behind our loading dock.
However, the weight numbers are surprising when you pick up a pair of these lightweight but heavy duty multi-purpose utility gloves made from bamboo.
As a GO Green Glove user, you’ve made our planet greener, our air fresher, reduced landfill burden, and saved yourself some money at the same time.
Since our GO Green Glove business continues to grow, it will be interesting to see how the next three years will weigh out.
