I often write about how hard we try to find exciting new garden products for Quality Garden Tools, but this year at the Chelsea Flower Show I think we have found a whole range!

Ethel Gloves have designed and manufactured a great range of stylish ladies gloves. Their motto is ‘fashion, function and protection’ and from what I’ve seen so far they deliver this ‘in spades’!

Kimberley, the Ethel Gloves senior account specialist was visiting the Chelsea Flower Show for the first time from California and took time out to meet me at the famous Chelsea bandstand.

Although only just over a year old Ethel is fast establishing itself as one of the best glove brands in the US market. The gloves are incredibly comfortable with a two way stretch fabric back, super-soft synthetic leather palm with rubberised grip, extended cuffs and reinforced fingers. For the ultimate in ease of care all gloves are also machine washable.

Many brands of gloves already available in the UK offer some protection and comfort, but I don’t think that anything available at the moment offers Ethel’s keen sense of style. From patterns like houndstooth to fleur-de-lis in colours from the coolest lemon yellow to the brightest red; these gloves are not only up to the toughest gardening jobs, but also will make any lady wearing them look and feel fantastic.

Hopefully Quality Garden Tools will be able to negotiate supply of these lovely gloves for all our UK customers. I promise to let you know of any developments as soon as I hear them myself.

Kimberley returned to the USA with no doubts of my regard for her company’s great product – who knows, next year you might be able to see Ethel Gloves on display at Chelsea itself!
