Dorian Winslow, the owner of Womanswork, emailed to let me about a new line of very mod gloves and hats from her company.
Womanswork is based in Pawling, with a sales office on East 55th Street. I know lots of woman who swear by their stuff — because it’s designed by and for other female gardeners. I notice they now have a few men’s gloves on their Web site, too.
Here’s Dorian’s email:
“The new Black & White Floral collection from WomansworkÃ‚Â® combines fashion and function.
“Garden gloves and hats are made with a stylish floral mod print in cotton sateenÃ¢â‚¬â€with a touch of lycra for extra comfort.
Gloves have sturdy micro suede synthetic palms and longer cuffs for better protection. Hats are fully lined for greater sun protection (UPF 30+). All are machine washable. Gloves are priced at $26 and hats are also priced at $26.
” With the new High Performance work gloves Womanswork has created the most lightweight synthetic work glove on the market for women, combining superior durability with cutting edge styling.
“This glove is reinforced on the fingertips and palm with ToughTekÃ‚Â®, a synthetic fiber designed to resist abrasion and provide superior grip. A ventilation panel on the back of the glove uses a high tech mesh to wick moisture away from the hand. A carabiner hook allows the user to clip the gloves on a belt loop for easy access. Available in three fashion colors: Aqua, Pale Lime and Pale Peach for $23.
“WomansworkÃ‚Â® is a company dedicated to designing garden gloves and hats customized for women.
