The deerskin of these Tough Touch Gardening gloves (bright yellow to avoid loss) have been specially treated to be waterproof while remaining supple. Thornproof and with a deep cuff for protection, the gloves are designed to feel tight when first worn so that when they expand the prescribed 20% they ‘fit like a glove’. This gives greater dexterity in the garden. Endorsed by the RHS.
'Song of Hiawatha' by Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

‘He had mittens, Minjekahwun,

Magic mittens made of deerskin;

When upon his hand he wore them,

He could smite the rocks asunder,

He could grind them into powder.’


The company making these gloves was founded in 1971 by a welder, working on the Tyne, who saw the need for better work gloves. The popularity of the high quality examples he then produced encouraged him to design gloves for other uses, particularly gardening. The rest, as they say, is history.
