These undergloves are made to protect waste collectors from the risk of injuries due to needles and sharp objects. As they are worn underneath the regular glove – which needs to be adapted to the changing weather conditions – the underglove is durable and stays clean. The underglove is composed of patches of « elephantskin » textile : the shielding material. The patches move along each other to maintain flexibility and comfort, and they are held together between two thin layers of textile. Shape and material of the undergloves are intended to highlight the sportive aspect of the waste collector’s activity.
