Mujjo’s Leather Touchscreen Gloves

View all 11 Photos

Part of the frustration of emerging technologies is the unexpected ways in which they cause us to question existing designs that for years, decades or even centuries we’ve taken for granted. Take for example the glove; gloves have never gone out of fashion, and a good pair of leather gloves has been an essential part of a man’s wardrobe for a long time. But once smartphones rolled around, people found that they simply could not use the device except with bare hands, an issue especially frustrating with inclement weather. While many brands have tried to find alternative routes for making gloves that don’t present this problem, they often give up style for pragmatisms and still leave many out in the cold. But thanks to the designers at the Netherland-based firm Mujjo, this compromise is a thing of the past with bold new line of Leather Touchscreen Gloves. The gloves are designed with “subtleness in mind,” as they instill Mujjo’s aesthetic into a vessel that keeps your hands warm as well as your phone operable. The matte finish of the gloves gives them an understated dignity, with magnetic snap closures that ensure a snug fit. The clean lines and strong attention to detail keep the seams at a minimum and it fits your fingers with no extraneous bulk. But while it’s undeniably a gorgeous glove, the real kicker is its use of advanced nanotechnology, which mimics the conduction needed to use a touchscreen and provides an unrestricted experience as it is integrated into all five fingers as well as the palm of the glove’s hand. The technology is truly remarkable, infused into Ethiopian lambskin (known worldwide for its insolation properties) and totally independent from the human skin, so all you feel is the soft cashmere lining when you put them on. This all comes together to make a glove even a non-smartphone user would love to have, and is packaged in a beautiful box whose dark tones mimic the striking and subtle personality of the glove itself. So while some may have seen this problem as a frustration, Mujjo has turned it into a point of true inspiration.
