Gloves designed for stylish gardening for the whole family
Under the deft pencil strokes of the Blackfox designer, garden gloves take shape... Coloured, understated, patterned or plain, we design gloves to please all gardeners. It's not all about aesthetics; our gloves are designed for gardening activities, and whether they are made of leather, synthetic or cotton, the comfort of the gloves is just as important to us! And because gardening nowadays is a family affair, we offer models to suit everyone. Gloves with an assertive look, like the Emmy models for fashion-conscious women, or more discreet and classic models like the Gripper gloves for those looking for something simpler. And for men, we have understated models like our Tactil gloves or a touch of colour with the Jardy model. But at Blackfox, we also offer a large number of unisex models like the Strong so that colours are no longer a matter of gender! And little gardeners are not left out as a range of special children's gardening gloves is available... Different materials, colours, patterns... Now gardening is child's play !
For every activity, there is a suitable pair of gloves!
Designed to meet the needs of a variety of gardening activities, our gloves are made to suit whatever use you wish to make of them. With a minimum of the EN420: 2003 standard, our garden gloves fall into the category of PPE (Personal Protective Equipment) subject to specific regulations and standards. Appropriate levels of protection for the activities you will be undertaking.
A shrub to prune? The leather palm and polyester back of our Jardy gloves are perfect, combining flexibility and comfort. If our friends the thorns show up, opt for models such as the Rose or Roncier gloves (leather for the toughest thorns!).
Gardening means getting your hands into the earth! And when the weather is right for planting, protecting your hands from moisture and dirt may be necessary. We have a range of products including Plantation and Garden gloves, which are totally waterproof.
For all other gardening activities, you can find the appropriate use and level of protection on each glove product sheet.
Raw materials chosen by Blackfox according to the purpose of the gloves
By choosing specific materials for each type of glove, we can offer you guidance in the use of the products. To protect your hands from thorns, we choose thick, crepe-like latex that provides a barrier. There are several models depending on the type of thorns: Aubépine gloves for small thorns or Roncier gloves for brambles. In damp or wet conditions, synthetic rubber is the way to go! Totally waterproof, this material is used for our Plantation and Garden gloves, and will be your best ally to for keeping your hands dry. Recently, we have also been selecting natural materials to create our Bamboo gloves, made of bamboo fibre, which is really comfortable, and latex on the palm for waterproofing. The choice of material is therefore essential in defining the properties of the gloves and their use! Knowing the materials used to make your gloves is also helpful in knowing better how to maintain them, and we tell you more about this on each product sheet... ;)
Garden gloves for every size of hand
Just like the sizes for garden shoes, gardening gloves have their own sizes too! Our women's gardening glove models mostly start at size 6 and go up to size 9. The men's models go up to size 11. For the little ones, our children's garden gloves are available in sizes 3, 4 and 5! To be more precise, a size 3 children's gloves is designed to fit a child of 3-4 years, a size 4 to fit a child of 5-6 years and a size 5, to fit a 7-8 year old.
