I was given a pair of Foxgloves as a Christmas present in 2011 and loved the gloves to much that I brought them to Australia.

They are mainly used for gardeners across the world however these gloves are so versatile for everyone to use whether it be for gardening, sport or even keeping away from the sun.

Take a look at our website and be pleasantly surprised with these amazing gloves.

Gardening Work Gloves

FOXGLOVES are the perfect garden gloves. As a landscape architect and professional horticulturist, Harriet had tried every garden glove on the market, but never found one that fit well and could be worn all day.

Most were so bulky and clumsy that she preferred not to wear any gardening gloves, but that really took its toll on her hands.

One day she tried a pair of women’s dress gloves from the 1950′s and they were nearly perfect as garden gloves. They fit snugly and protected her hands. But they weren’t meant for the job and wore out quickly. She searched thrift shops and flea markets to buy replacements.

Then it occurred to her that modern fabrics could make her dream a reality.

Based on the design of the fifties glove, but using Invista SUPPLEX® nylon for durability and Invista LYCRA® spandex for four-way stretch, the resulting garden gloves wore better than she ever imagined.

She made a few pairs and had them tested by a group of friends and professional gardeners. They raved over these gardening gloves! The response was so positive that she decided to make them available to everyone.

We know you will enjoy FOXGLOVES garden gloves as much as we do.
