Gordini Gloves have long been a household name for casual and outdoor gloves, and the company behind this line of outerwear has a long history of providing such attire. The company was founded in 1956, when there was a great need for outerwear that would keep in the body's heat. The winters at the time were rough, and as transportation was still in the middle stages of becoming convenient and fast, the average working man spent quite a bit of time outdoors walking from home to work, and back again. The company was founded in Vermont and has since spread to locations in Canada as well. As these are two parts of the world that receive a lot of snow and are known for their frigid winter weather, it makes perfect sense that the motivation to create great casual Gordini Gloves would be born in those areas. While the line of casual wear has done very well, this company has brought on specialists who are adventurous in nature. Many of the new products that are coming from this brand are made specifically for winter sports like snowboarding, skiing, ice climbing, and other such extreme winter sports. Experts in those sports were brought on board to help design gloves that would keep in the body's heat, and be flexible to move in the ways that are needed. This company has been experimenting for a long time with the combination of natural materials and synthetic materials. The combination that is found in Gordini products creates a hybrid of materials that offers the most flexibility, protection, durability, and style. Certain natural materials are needed for their ability to keep in body heat. Other synthetic materials offer the needed flexibility and 'breathability' in certain portions of the gloves. Designers have worked hard to mesh these two materials in a way that present the most effective product possible. In the beginning of the company, the gloves were made exclusively for men. Driving gloves and casual gloves were their bread and butter. Today, there are a large number of options available for both men and women. Some are meant to look more fashionable for everyday wear, while others are specifically designed to work for the tough spots on mountains. The casual look of Gordini Gloves is a trademark of the company. They like their products to work hard in the toughest conditions that nature can devise, while still looking sleek enough to wear on an everyday basis. The long history of designers has stayed true to the original goal of creating gloves that keep the consumer warm and dry no matter what the thermostat and weather report are saying.
