SHOWA gardening gloves awarded a Which? Best Buy


SHOWA gardening gloves awarded a Which? Best BuySHOWA gardening gloves, from Globus, a world leader in hand protection solutions, has achieved two of the three Which? Best Buys awarded to lightweight garden gloves for excellent performance in comfort, protection, ease of use and durability. Now is the time for garden centres and retailers to stock up so that there is a glove or two on hand for customer requests!

The SHOWA Floreo 370 and SHOWA 341 Advanced Grip gloves were highlighted as ‘Which? Best Buys’ in the Which? Gardening magazine’s top three gloves; scoring highly in all test requirements. Which? Gardening magazine offers a wealth of advice for all gardeners and is highly regarded for its product reviews. Their team tested a range of lightweight gardening gloves for comfort, durability, weeding, protection, ease of deadheading, hard physical work and nettle pulling, as well as the intricate work of writing labels and handling small seeds.

Steve Shale, Marketing Manager for Globus commented, “It’s great that Which? has recognised the all-round attributes and performance of the SHOWA gardening gloves – this certainly backs up the feedback we have already received from gardeners and landscapers alike which helps us to continually improve our glove designs.”

Available in several attractive colours, the SHOWA Floreo 370 is a lightweight glove with a waterproof nitrile palm which provides excellent grip and Which? reports that it ‘fits like a second skin’ and keeps hands clean. The SHOWA 341, available in pink or purple, offers slightly more heavy duty protection with a durable, natural latex palm coating for great grip in all conditions. Yet it remains comfortable, breathable and provides protection from soil dampness. Both pairs of gloves, whilst being cost effective, are designed to last and they are machine washable to keep them clean.

The entire range of SHOWA gardening gloves from Globus has been designed for long periods of wear and allows excellent dexterity, comfort and durability. The gloves have an anatomically designed fit for great comfort and an elasticated cuff to secure the glove in place. They are breathable to keep hands comfortable during long periods of wear and are machine washable.

Globus offers bespoke solutions to garden centres and retailers to provide a range of gloves to protect customers. They are remarkably well fitting, provide excellent protection to the hands from cuts, snagging or abrasion and are modestly priced. Garden centres and other retailers can be sure to secure repeat purchasing as the SHOWA range of gloves is designed for comfort.

Not only are the gloves fit for purpose but they conform to exacting industrial EN standards to ensure that quality is consistent. In addition to the high manufacturing standards, retailers may like to know that only the finest materials have been used.
