In the cold of winter, heavy clothes and the habit of putting our hands in our pockets tend to put physical distance between people and closed ones. Emo Gloves is designed for common use between two people – parent and child, lovers or friends – and they can hold hands warmly to connect physically and emotionally despite the cold. Working off the design of conventional gloves, Emo Gloves has a unique feature in the lower right corner of the palm. This feature appears as a small opening in an upturned smile and allows another hand to slip in. This simple and environmentally friendly method can be applied to all old gloves and bring about better interaction and connection on cold winter days.
