Kara Buttimer worked for years in the fashion industry while maintaining a small garden at her home in Philadelphia. When she realized that every pair of garden gloves she owned were so uncomfortable that she ended up taking them off, she got an idea. Putting to use all of her product development experience, she created sturdy garden gloves with a close fit that allows the users to feel the earth while working outside.
Now in its seventh year, her company, Angela’s Garden, features gloves and other garden accessories, all of which undergo testing to make sure they’re useful and can stand up to their intended job.
The gloves come in a variety of colors for both men and women. For more info, visit angelas-garden.com.
