Garden gloves are a dime a dozen, but attractive gardens are harder to come by. Ethel makes beautiful garden gloves for women in a wide variety of styles, and their newer Bamboo line proves that garden gloves can be eco-friendly and still be attractive.
These gloves are vegan, anti-microbial and feature synthetic leather palms for protection. Too feminine for the male gardener in your life? This year I used a pair of Mechanix Wear gloves--Ethel’s “brother” company--and really liked them. ("Bamboo" Ethel Gloves, $16-$24)
