TOUCH SCREEN COMPATIBLE SENSOR TOUCH™ GLOVES FOR WOMEN & MEN
THREE DIFFERENT TECHNOLOGIES–THE SENSOR IS ACTUALLY PART OF THE MATERIAL:
NOT eLINK FABRIC ATTACHED TO FINGER TIPS–LIKE OTHER GLOVE MARKETERS
(Gloversville and New York, New York) Smart retailers and marketers know that every so often a “tipping point” arises in consumer products that fundamentally changes the way we live and interact on a daily basis. When this happens it’s not just a fashion trend but a cultural and social shift. The widespread use of touch screen mobile technology in business and consumer products is at the very core of this major shift.
The introduction of touch screen mobile technology has created an opportunity to service consumer demand for fashion accessories that complement and enhance our experience & ability to use touch screen devices. For fall ’11 Ciré by Grandoe is introducing our newest innovation; Sensor-Touch™ gloves designed to help people stay warm and stay connected. Sensor-Touch gloves are built to be touch screen compatible and fashionable. They will activate all touch screen devices including Smartphones, E-Readers, Tablets, MP3 Players, ATM’s, Fuel Pumps and GPS Devices.
Sensor Touch™ gloves are available in a variety of styles and fabrics, for both men and women, including products constructed with patent-pending TouchTec® Leather, Infi-Knit™ Technology and Conductive Thread Technology.
TouchTec® Leather is uniquely processed with Nano Technology to mimic the touch of the human hand. This allows the wearer of a TouchTec® Leather glove to activate a touch screen device without removing the glove and exposing their hand to the cold. Men’s style Apollo (suggested retail $90) and women’s style Cupid (suggested retail $80) are designed to be functional fitting, classic looking leather gloves that allow for touch point control. Both styles are available in Black S, M, L, and XL sizes, with men’s Apollo also being available in XXL.
Infi-Knit™ Technology gloves have conductive material weaved throughout the glove for complete connectivity. The wearer can use any part of the glove to active a touch screen device. Men’s style Socrates (retail $45) and women’s style Leto (retail $40) feature a Winterknit™ design that allows for a flexible and comfortable fit. Socrates is available in Black and Grey in sizes M, L and XL. Leto (WHICH WE SAMPLED) is available in Black, Grey and Red in S/M and L/XL.
Men’s styles Sors (retail $40) and women’s style Helena (retail $35) are designed using Conductive Thread Technology. These two styles, available in black only, have an embroidered conductive index finger and thumb that will activate a touch screen. These styles are made with active-wear fabric and a unique palm design for flexible fit and extra grip. Men’s Sors is available in M, L and XL. Women’s Helena is available in S, M, L and XL.
With the widespread use of touch screen mobile technology quickly being the everyday, the availability of touch screen compatible products is essential. Ciré by Grandoe’s® Sensor Touch glove line offers the necessary touch screen functionality while stepping up the style. ______________________________________________________________________________________________________

The Fashion Guru’s Review: These gloves are comfortable and stylish. You can wear them with a ski parka or a preppy peacoat. As for the touch screen mobile technology, it takes some time for them to respond. You need to wear your gloves for a few seconds before using your electronic device.
I was fortunate to sample a pair from Lipton Publicity. These are most heavy duty knit gloves I have ever worn. The suede palms makes it easy to grip the steering wheel as you trudge through the snow beaten roads. Beware though. The gloves are made from 55% lambswool, which is not good for sensitive skin. If your skin can handle the Infi-Knit, this would make the ideal holiday gift.
