Youngstown Glove Co. introduced a Women's Garden Series, described as form-fit to the shape of a woman's hand with longer fingers and a more slender palm.
The 11-year-old company, based in Agoura Hills, Calif., offers the gloves in pink or burgundy. High-tech features include a one-piece back-of-hand made of nylon with a moisture-wicking outer layer.
In announcing the product introduction, the company’s press release stated its case for a line specifically for women: "Youngstown knows women perform hard work just like men do. They also know their hands are built differently than a man's."
