ISGLOVES is uniquely designed for you to use your touch screen devices in the chilly winter. Made of Eco-friendly materials, ISGLOVES brings warmth, comfort and convenience, for the Sporty, Techy and Fashion-Conscious!
How ISGLOVES was born
Charmain found herself in the middle of a Swedish winter when she was in Sweden in 2010/11. With temperatures nearing 0°F, Charmain realized she could no longer use her touch screen devices with normal gloves on. Her friend, who was also caught in the same winter as her, had to use his nose to answer phone calls in the cold. Refusing to submit to Nature, Charmain shopped around and managed to find gloves with conductive tips but these were not warm enough for such a harsh winter.
While she was able to operate her touch screen devices, Charmain’s heart continued to long for the comfort and warmth that her insulating mittens used to provide.
With the winter getting colder and colder each day, Charmain seeked out other individuals who found motivation in life by solving people' real-life problems, sharing with them her desire to create a design that combined mittens with touch-gloves; they agreed her design ideals and formed a close-knitted and passionate team of designers.
The team designed prototype after prototype, improving the model with each design.
After several months of research, testing and optimising the design, the hybrid touch sensitive glove-within-a-mitten-ISGLOVES prototype was finalized.
Why ISGLOVES Style then?
Many people felt that the original ISGLOVES was revolutionary in solving the problem raised, however many of them also requested for us to create a glove that is fashionable, to match their choice of clothes easily with the gloves worn. Many would love to wear these unique, warm and handy gloves while commuting to work or simply checking out the city.
Therefore the team gathered even more feedback, went back to their ISGLOVES design templates and redesigned the whole product from the ground up; ISGLOVES Style was hence born.

How are we Eco-friendly?
At FIETT we strongly believe we can solve a problem without creating another. Hence we designed quality and eco-friendliness into our products so that our product value to the individual is brought to the next level. ISGLOVES are made of sustainable and recycled materials, for example:
• The inner “touch” gloves are mostly made of sustainable BAMBOO fibres.
• The outer mitten comprises of Recycled Thinsulate, RPET Fabrics and PU leather which are all friendly to the environment
Hence ISGLOVES Style is COMFORTable to wear, STYLISH to look at and FRIENDLY to the ENVIRONMENT.
