Leather Garden Gloves That Will Change Your Life

January 16, 2019

“No thorns go as deep as a rose’s,” observed the 19th-century English poet Algernon Swinburne. Would that Swinburne had lived to witness the invention of these invincible Leather Rose Gloves.

From Florida-based Garden Works and sewn from “100 percent cow grain leather,” the stylish gauntlet gloves will fully protect a gardener’s forearms while pruning roses. And perhaps keep you warm as well—the best time to prune is in winter, when roses are dormant.

A pair of Leather Rose Gloves is available in two sizes (medium and large) and is \$44 from florist Emily Thompson.

“We love thorny things, but they don’t always love us back. We use these soft yet tough leather gloves to handle our flowers-with-teeth. Forearm gauntlet sleeves provide full protection,” notes Thompson.
