This time I had a chance to review a pair of gloves. But these are not regular gloves, these are Ayla Gloves made from a natural, sustainable resource: bamboo. I chose taupe gloves which apparently are first generation meaning that ones made in newer colours are a bit snugger at the hand based on the best possible fit. However, there was no need to worry as they fit perfectly and are definitely not too loose on me.
Little background about the Ayla Gloves
They were made as the “hands need some stylin too” and in today’s world we need our fingers free for tactile functions such as texting and all sorts of other things too!
Ayla Gloves are made locally in Vancouver, British Columbia in Canada. Thanks to the use of bamboo, each pair of gloves is absorbent, quick drying, breathable and hypoallergenic. All fabric is organic and Oeko-Tex 100 certified.

There is a tiny bit of silver embellisment Ayla Gloves are testing right now as sort of their “stamp” on the glove. Janet Katalinic, the owner and designer of Ayla Gloves has always been inspired by the Italian designer Brunello Cuccinelli and they use a bit (tiny) of embellisment here and there on their merchandise.
Who can wear Ayla Gloves?
Basically everyone but there is a group of people that can really benefit from Ayla Gloves. Apart from fashionistas, looking for innovative ways to accessorize their layered looks, the fingerless gloves are dedicated to people with sensitive skin or needing sun protection. Drivers can certainly wear them too – nobody likes driving a car when the steering wheel is freezing cold. Crochet lovers – pay attention. It looks like the gloves can help fight tiredness and stiffness while crocheting!
How to wear Ayla Gloves?
The gloves are light yet soft and breathable. They are classic and stylin’ too and make a great accessory where layering is the key. When it comes to dressing up, spring and fall are by far most fashionistas’ favourite seasons. You get to use your creativity in layering and transitional pieces. And this is the parfect time to wear Ayla Gloves with 3/4 sleeve jackets and tops. If you are stumped over what to wear during this transitional time, read this:
