A Perfect Fit

Don’t be fooled by the look of Ethel gardening gloves. Beneath the stylish exterior, these babies are rugged enough for your dirtiest, thorniest gardening tasks. It’s no surprise, really, given the company’s roots. Ethel Gloves’ parent company is Mechanix Wear, which is known for outfitting NASCAR crews with high-performance work gloves. Michael Hale created the Ethel brand when he realized there was a need for work gloves that really fit the contours of women’s hands. Many of us at Daily Grommet didn’t realize how ill-fitting other work gloves are until we tried these. They’re form-fitting without being restrictive. The stretchy fabric is breathable with a rubberized grip, reinforced fingertips and an extended cuff to shield wrists. Besides being protective, Ethel gloves have great personality, with feminine prints that include tonal fleur-de-lis patterns and subtle snakeskin designs. You can also choose a sustainable version, crafted from bamboo and synthetic leather. For rose gardeners there’s a gauntlet sleeve glove, and for those times when you need to really dig into the dirt, Ethel offers a flexible knit utility glove with a waterproof palm. All Ethel gloves are machine washable, so you can work hard, get dirty and then easily wash away the grime in time for your next gardening adventure.

    Happy spring everyone! My name is Michael and I'm super excited to have Daily Grommet feature Ethel Gloves today. About four years ago I started Ethel Gloves because my mom couldn't find any quality gardening & work gloves that fit her hands well. She would always find herself taking her gloves off when working in the yard or that would become crunchy after being used. All that was available were big, boxy gloves that were just sized down from a men's traditional work gloves. These gloves also did not offer much in style or colors so this inspired me to create something that would offer the best in fashion, function and protection while still maintaining great fit, dexterity and flexibility. I feel that we've met that goal with our line of Ethel Gloves. All our fans and users have fallen in love with their pair and I'm sure you will too.

    @nancy: The prices are on the main page to the right of the video in the shopping box. You need to click on the 'Choose an Option' drop-down box to see the pricing for each of the options. Thank you for the feedback that this is not easy to locate.

    I was wondering the same thing, then did a search for Made in the USA on your site and these came up so I thought they were. Then I found this comment. That's a little confusing. I've made buying US made products a priority. Is there a way you could highlight US made products and/or clearly state where each item is manufactured?

    Thank you!

    @ Bernadette Vitale: When you search for "Made in USA", the search looks for this text on our website. Since the text "Made in USA" was indeed in the comments of the Ethel Gloves discussion board, that's why you're here, on this page.

    You can go here to see all the Grommets that are "Made in USA".

    Also, when you are on the featured Grommet page, if it's made in USA, it will be listed in the DETAILS tab (under video).

    Thank you for your proactive support of companies that manufacture in US!

    yhese gloves are great ...even if it is the dead of winter for me. However I noticed they are made in VietNam? Would be even greater if they were/are made in the USA.

    thanks
