A New Range for the New Year

A New Range for the New Year
Posted on 01/01/10 | Posted by The Fat Gardener

First, let me wish you all a very happy, healthy and prosperous 2010!

It is with great excitement that I write regarding a considerable commercial development for Quality Garden Tools in the New Year. Over the last year the company have been in talks with Ethel Gloves (a subsidiary of Mechanix Wear Inc), an American glove manufacturer to establish a distribution for the product in the UK.

Ethel Gloves began life on 1st April in the great (and sunny) state of California and have quickly become known in the USA as a leading brand of ladies gardening gloves. Quality Garden Tools is recognised throughout the UK and Ireland as distributors and retailers of garden tools and accessories and feel that the 3 qualities of ‘Fashion. Function. Protection.’ exemplified by Ethel Gloves will be well received by British gardeners.

The gloves are due into the UK towards the middle of February and should be available to customers by the beginning of March and through select garden retail outlets shortly afterwards. The gloves are all made to fit the contours of a lady’s hand and feature durable synthetic suede palms with reinforced finger tips, rubberized grips and two way stretch fabric backs. The colours and designs bring a much needed ‘breath of fresh air’ to the garden gloves we have all got used to seeing in garden centres.

I can also confirm that in partnership with Quality Garden Tools, Ethel Gloves have applied for stand space at this year’s RHS Chelsea Flower Show – so let’s keep our fingers crossed we will see them at Chelsea in May.

I managed to get my hands on (if you’ll pardon the pun) a few pairs of Ethel Gloves in advance and they have all been very well received by friends, journalists and most importantly my mother!

So why not join the Ethel Gloves family yourself in 2010?
