Sophie Conran Gauntlet Gardening Gloves by Burgon & BallBurgon & Ball
Sophie Conran Gauntlet Gardening Gloves by Burgon & Ball. "The Garden & Great Outdoors Collection" has been designed exclusively by Sophie Conran for Burgon & Ball. Working in partnership with Burgon & Ball, Sophie has created a stunning collection of ergonomically advanced tools and gloves, specifically designed with the female hand in mind, and gift sets for lovers of the outdoors. Commenting on her gauntlet sized gardener's gloves, Sophie said ?These gloves are amazing to wear when I?m pruning and cutting - soft, supple and beautiful. The extra-long cuffs keep my arms free from scratches and allergies and the palm re-enforcements keep the blisters at bay. Fantastically protective in every way
? The gauntlet gardening gloves have a re-enforced pad across the back of the gloves that adds extra protection for knuckles, with the palms and fingers made from hard wearing yet ultra-soft fabric that doesn?t go stiff if it gets wet. Also available in a everyday gardener's style. A message from Sophie... Growing flowers, vegetables and herbs brings nourishment and joy into my life. Gardening and its rich rewards are a fantastic panacea to the hectic pace of life that we all deal with day to day. I grew up with parents who were both enthusiastic gardeners and from an early age have been able to delight in the peace and beauty to be found in the garden. Wherever I have found myself, I have always had the urge to get my hands into some earth and I try to spend as much time as possible outside - crating a garden is a fantastically rewarding pastime. As with most families, my home revolves around the kitchen, which is filled with gorgeous changing blooms from the garden and a rather sporadic supply of fragrant herbs and glorious misshapen vegetables. Not surprisingly, coming from a family of designers, I have been sketching out ideas for products for as long as I can remember. As a gardener I have always dreamed of creating a range of gardening tools and accessories. One of the problems I face as a woman when gardening is that my hands are generally too small for standard tools. My designs specifically address this issue and I hope will add to the joy of gardening with their beauty and improved functionality. I am delighted to be working with Burgon & Ball to produce my tools, because of their exceptional quality and outstanding heritage in garden tool making. I'm immensely proud of these tools, which are a joy to work with. I hope you love them too. The better the tools, the easier the job. Sophie.
