Women Gloves

Ladies Fashion Gloves GlovesGloves cover hands and have separate sheaths or openings for each finger and the thumb. Fingerless gloves have an opening but no covering sheath for each finger. Gauntlets are fingerless gloves with one large opening. Gloves which cover the entire hand but do not have separate finger openings or sheaths are called mittens.

Gloves are used for warmth, as a fashion accessory and as a design statement. Gloves are made of wool, velvet, leather, silk, lace, acrylic and rubber. Gloves have an internal lining of satin, silk or velor and sometimes have padding as well.
