Synthetic material in gloves is here to stay. As well as the advantage of greater choice of colors, synthetic gloves are washable and colorfast, usually more comfortable, flexible and durable. They retain their flexibility after being exposed to wet and damp, unlike most leather gloves. Synthetic materials are also always tested for hidden faults insuring that quality is maintained.
