Dirty work in the garden doesn’t have to be gloomy and boring. I was sent some garden gloves from Foxglovesto try. These gloves have been on my wish list for some time now. I was not disappointed. They are really fabulous! The fit is so good; they feel like a second skin. The Foxgloves Grip, which I received in delicious periwinkle blue, is supple and form fitting, allowing for doing fine work in the garden. Its longer length also protects your wrist from wayward falling soil. These gloves, with their silicone grips, are also perfect for holding garden tools or binoculars, even a camera for those garden-ready photo shoots.
I have to say I couldn’t wait to get out in the garden but also will hate to get the Foxgloves dirty! Even if I dig in the dirt, they are machine washable so no worries there. And the colors; my Foxgloves Grip came in Periwinkle Blue. They also come in the luscious colors of Fuchsia, Iris, Moss, Sahara, Spring Green, Tulip, and Crow Black. Picture your favorite color on your hand.
Foxgloves Gauntlet gloves are protection perfected! Comfortable, they are perfect for thorny and abrasive tasks. I put the padded, rugged Foxgloves Gauntlet gloves to work clipping the last rose of summer. The lightweight synthetic leather padded palm and reinforced fingertips protect against thorns and bruising. The resilient synthetic suede cuff guards against scrapes and scratches. They are designed to provide maximum comfort and complete dexterity. They are also machine washable.
These gloves scream quality, from the feel of the fabric down to the smallest detail, the little loop on each glove that allows them to hang from a pegboard, ready for action.

GardenSMART is happy to welcome Foxgloves to our Favorites page. Harriet Zbikowski is the designer and founder of Foxgloves. She has a bachelor’s degree in Fine Arts and a Master’s in Landscape Architecture from Cornell University. She has gardened since she was a child and has vivid memories of her grandmother’s flower and vegetable gardens. Harriet’s work as a professional horticulturist gave rise to the idea for Foxgloves. In her words: I tried every garden glove on the market but never found one that fit well and could be worn all day.Through my design experience, I knew that modern performance (sport) fabrics were created to perform in harsh conditions. When I combined Invista SUPPLEX® nylon with the four-way stretch of Invista LYCRA® elastane the resulting gloves were durable, form fitting, extremely comfortable and kept my hands and nails clean even after hours of garden time.”
